Pharmacy Manager
Walgreens at UHealth Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center

Alex Cosimano, PharmD, CSP is a board-certified specialty pharmacist and community-based specialty pharmacy manager with over 10 years of experience. Alex has a wealth of experience in community and specialty pharmacy, oncology infusion and research, and has assisted in the development and execution of team member training for the Walgreens Feel More Like You® (FMLY) service. This service is designed for cancer patients, customers, and caregivers at no cost, to help manage the side effects of cancer by offering solutions to manage changes to skin, nails, and hair. While adapting to the challenges of COVID-19 and the barriers faced with the in-person service, Alex helped to launch the Walgreens FMLY virtual support group, where he also served as the pharmacist for the first bilingual virtual support group. Currently, he focuses on oral chemotherapy, targeted agents, and supportive care for patients experiencing cancer. In coordination with patient care teams, Alex works to educate patients on their prescribed treatment and how to respond to side effects, provides financial resource coordination, assesses adherence, and assists with eliminating barriers and gaps in care. By always having the patient at the forefront of his work, Alex builds relationships upon a foundation of trust and service, propelling his patient care to the next level.

“It is such an honor to be a part of this collaboration between Learn Look Locate and Walgreens specialty pharmacy. Specialty pharmacies have such amazing resources for patients that many do not realize. Aside from providing medication, we can help connect patients to innumerable resources including education, screening, fertility preservation, financial assistance, and community support. I look forward to extending these resources to the Learn Look Locate community. As a pharmacist, I believe foremost in helping patients to fit their medication regimen into their lives rather than building their lives around their medication. This includes working to mitigate side effects and educating on how to get the best results from their medication.”
