Paige Edwards, PharmD, PGY1 Pharmacy Practice Resident, El Rio Health

My name is Paige and I am completing a PGY1 Pharmacy Practice residency here at El Rio Health with a focus on ambulatory care. I was born and raised in Wisconsin and completed pharmacy school at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Go Badgers! I ultimately wanted to complete a residency with El Rio Health to serve underserved patients and be part of a strong interdisciplinary team dynamic that values leadership and innovation to provide world-class healthcare for all patients. My career interests include primary care, cardiology, infectious disease, and pharmacy management. For fun, I love to cook, travel, be active, and try new restaurants. I love all of the new hiking options here in Tucson and am excited to experience a warm winter!

Victoria Minnix, PharmD, PGY1-Community Resident, El Rio Health

My name is Victoria Minnix and I am the PGY1 Community Pharmacy Resident for 2020-2021. I was born and raised in Virginia and moved to Johnson City, TN in 2016 where I graduated from East Tennessee State University. My areas of interest include chronic disease state management, smoking cessation, and pharmacy management. I am so thrilled to be at El Rio Health; gaining experience in a Federally Qualified Health Center is so impactful and the patient population within El Rio is truly one of a kind! In my free time, I enjoy exploring Tucson through hiking and numerous delicious restaurants. I also enjoy spending time with my fiancé Kurtis, and our furry kiddos Rocky and Rosie.
