Melissa was instrumental in the design, outfitting, and final move of the clinical trials pharmacy at MGH. She was also responsible for technician training and assisting with interview and annual evaluations. Melissa was an active member of the Technician Review Board and, by using an electronic accountability system, tracked and helped provide feedback for issues and improvements in the pharmacy.
