Faculty: Donald Downing, B.S. Pharm., R.Ph., Clinical Professor, University of Washington School of Pharmacy and Skye Mitchell, Pharm.D., BCPS, ACSM GEI, Student, University of Washington School of Pharmacy

In 1975, Downing helped to start up the Puyallup Tribal Health Authority clinic and continued there until 1985. While there, he joined the School of Pharmacy faculty and later opened the first pharmacy in Bonney Lake and a community pharmacy in Federal Way. He continues to consult with and develop pharmacy services for various Native American tribes.

Downing directs the School’s Institute for Innovative Pharmacy Practice. He developed the nation’s first pharmacist-provided emergency contraception program and the first pharmacist-initiated ongoing hormonal contraception services. He also helped lead the effort in the 1990s to educate and certify pharmacists in Washington state and numerous other states to provide flu shots and other vaccines.

He teaches on topics including legislative advocacy, leadership and ethics. Downing has worked on pharmacy-care legislation in 39 states, devoting much of his energy to changing the public’s perception of pharmacists. In addition, he has conducted extensive research with funding from agencies such as the U.S. Agency for International Development, the National Institutes of Health, Advocates for Youth and the Packard Foundation.

Among his awards are the American Pharmacists Association’s Academy of Pharmacy Practice and Management Distinguished Achievement Award, the Washington State Pharmacy Association David Almquist Award and Pharmacist of the Year Award, and the UW School of Pharmacy’s Distinguished Alumnus Award and Milo Gilbaldi Excellence in Teaching Award.

Skye Mitchell is a third-year pharmacy student at the University of Washington’s School of Pharmacy and the President of the student organization PhRESH, (Pharmacy for Reproductive Education and Sexual Health). Skye’s work with PhRESH has been focused on building the Youth Friendly Pharmacy Network in Washington in effort to increase access to emergency contraception and other sexual health services. Her work has included developing resources for pharmacists to make initiating pharmacist prescribed emergency contraception clinical services easier, as well as increasing patient awareness of the network. Skye’s other interests include ambulatory pharmacy care and education. She has 3 years of student teaching experience and is currently a pharmacy intern at Bartell Drugs Pharmacy in Edmonds. Skye is a 2007 graduate of the University of Washington with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. Her family includes three bunnies and one daughter who is a competitive gymnast, which is why most evenings and weekends they can be found at the gym.
