Speaker Bio: Dr. Gina Stenhouse is a Pain Management, Opioid Safety, and Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PMOP) Coordinator at the VA Boston. She graduated from the University of Connecticut School of Pharmacy in 2012. As a student she was involved in SNPhA, LKS, the Diversity Committee, and Phi Lambda Sigma. Dr Stenhouse completed her first-year residency at VA Boston (2012-2013) and second year psychiatric pharmacy residency at VA San Diego (2013-2014). Following residency, she split her time between chronic pain management and inpatient medicine at VA San Diego. She later became board certified in psychiatric pharmacy. Life brought her back to the East Coast in 2016 and since returning she has worked at Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA). In 2017, she created the pharmacotherapy chronic pain management service for primary care. She was also involved in organization wide, multidisciplinary pain committees and oversaw CHA's progress with meeting the new and revised 2018 Joint Commission Standards for Pain Management. In 2019, she assisted with the development of the psychiatric pharmacy service.

Dr. Stenhouse is a Dominican American, grew up in Rhode Island, and enjoys pharmacy because it has afforded her the opportunity to work with and provide healthcare services to the underrepresented Latin community. Her passions are helping the underserved, deprescribing, and being able to improve patients’ quality of life and function with the safest, most effective regimen possible.
