Cara Harshberger, PharmD

Named one of Laramie’s 20 Under 40 by Laramie Young Professionals, Cara Harshberger is a valuable member of our Ivinson team and the community of Laramie.

Cara brought her clin­i­cal prac­tice to Ivin­son in 2011 with the Uni­ver­si­ty of Wyoming’s School of Phar­ma­cy, as an instruc­tor and pre­cep­tor for UW Phar­ma­cy stu­dents. In Octo­ber of 2017, Cara offi­cial­ly joined the Ivin­son team as our Clin­i­cal Phar­ma­cist. When asked what she loves most about Ivin­son, Cara said, I feel sup­port­ed both as a clin­i­cian and an indi­vid­ual at Ivinson.” 

Com­mu­ni­ty engage­ment and ser­vice is impor­tant to Cara both per­son­al­ly and pro­fes­sion­al­ly. She serves as a men­tor and edu­ca­tor to future phar­ma­cists and physi­cians, expos­ing stu­dents to what work­ing in a small­er com­mu­ni­ty looks like, with the hope that they will return to prac­tice in Wyoming. Cara is also involved with the Hematology/​Oncology Phar­ma­cists Asso­ci­a­tion which works to advance prac­tice both local­ly and nation­al­ly, bring­ing rur­al spe­cial­ty prac­tice issues to the nation­al stage. 

Cara always knew that she want­ed to work in health­care but it wasn’t until a high school project with a local phar­ma­cist that she decid­ed on phar­ma­cy as a career. After grad­u­at­ing with her Doc­tor of Phar­ma­cy, Cara went on to com­plete res­i­den­cy train­ing in clin­i­cal oncol­o­gy phar­ma­cy in Illi­nois. Over the years, Cara has always had her mind set on bring­ing the high­est lev­el of exper­tise in oncol­o­gy phar­ma­cy to our com­mu­ni­ty. She is excit­ed to con­tin­ue to build the oncol­o­gy pro­gram with the incred­i­ble health­care team at Ivinson. 

When asked about a time she feels a sense of pride in the work that she does, Cara said, Every day I am proud of the rela­tion­ships I have devel­oped with our providers and team. We have a lev­el of pro­fes­sion­al trust that pro­motes the high­est lev­el of patient care.” We are proud to have Cara on our team, pro­vid­ing excep­tion­al care to our com­mu­ni­ty. Help us con­grat­u­late Cara on this well-deserved recog­ni­tion as one of Laramie’s 20 Under 40!
