Contributors: Kali Olson PharmD, Travis Barlock MD, Jeffrey Olson MS2


In this episode of Pharmacy Phriday, Dr. Kali Olson joins Dr. Travis Barlock and Jeffrey Olson in studio to discuss a variety of interesting topics in the form of a segment show. Dr. Kali Olson earned her Doctorate of Pharmacy from the University of Colorado, Skaggs School of Pharmacy and completed a PGY1 residency at Detroit Receiving Hospital and a PGY2 residency in Emergency Medicine at Denver Health. She now works as an Emergency Medicine Pharmacist at Denver Health. 

In segment one of the show, Kali and Travis answer the Get-To-Know-You questionnaire. In segment two, they work together to answer a series of pharmacy-based riddles. In segment three they play a “Balderdash” like game in which they guess the definitions of medical jargon. In segment four they play the Number Needed to Treat game, invented by the AFP podcast. And in segment five they work together to answer a question about a far-out scenario involving medications and time travel!
