Casey Heath, PharmD

Casey Heath is orginially from Bridgton, Maine and graduated from Husson University School of Pharmacy.  Heath was drawn to PCHC’s pharmacy residency program because of my interest in community pharmacy and ambulatory care, as well as the opportunity to work with substance use disorder and the 340B program that I had some exposure to during my clinical rotations.  Heath has always felt welcome by PCHC employees as a student, resident candidate and now a resident.

Dennis La, PharmD

Dennis La is originally from Houston, Texas. He received his Doctor of Pharmacy degree from Texas A&M Irma Lerma Rangel College of Pharmacy in May 2019. Having no background in healthcare previously, Dennis was unsure what path he was going to take. Due to his curiosity and because of the positive influence of his best friends, Dennis began searching for more clinical experiences and leadership roles. In the summer of his P2 year, Dennis became the lead intern of a small group of pharmacy students at San Jose Clinic, an ambulatory care clinic in Houston. Since then, Dennis has been challenging himself to become the best clinician he can be. After 3 months of ambulatory care experience in his P4 APPEs with Baylor Scott and White in Temple, Texas, Dennis knew ambulatory care is what he wanted to do. He searched all around the nation for residency programs that focused in ambulatory care and found his way up north to PCHC after graduation. A hidden passion of Dennis’ is academia. Aside from work, Dennis enjoys meeting new people, watching shows on Netflix, and exploring new towns to find good shots for Instagram.

Sarah Mierz, PharmD

Sarah Mierz is originally from Branford, Conn., and attended University of Connecticut School of Pharmacy. Mierz has worked in retail pharmacy since high school and I always loved the direct patient interaction aspect of the job. PCHC really stood out for Mierz when she was searching for residency programs because I felt like I would be able to have an opportunity to help provide quality care to people who might not normally have access to it. Being able to work at a FQHC is something Mierz is very proud of because she believes that everyone should have access to healthcare no matter what their income is.
