Sadik Owolewa, PharmD, FISMP

2022-2023 FDA/ISMP Safe Medication Management Fellow

Sadik received his Doctor of Pharmacy Degree from Northeastern University School of Pharmacy in Boston, MA in 2019. Upon graduation, he started his pharmacy career at Walgreens, a retail Pharmacy Chain, in Washington D.C. While there, he guided patients with prescriptions and non-prescription medications through effective counseling and excellent customer service.

In 2020, Sadik joined Rite Aid Pharmacy as a staff pharmacist. He utilized his in-depth knowledge and expertise to perform Medication therapy managements (MTM) for patients while also overseeing a 4-person staff.  During his time at Rite Aid, he came across medication errors for which he conducted root cause analysis and educated the pharmacy staff.  This is how he discovered his passion for Medication Safety.

Sadik is excited about the fellowship and the opportunity to receive valuable insight into the most current approaches and tools use for advancing medication safety and error prevention.
