Director, Center for Consumer Health Informatics Research, Associate Professor, College of Pharmacy-Department of Pharmacy Practice, Nova Southeastern University

Kevin A. Clauson (@kevinclauson) entered his first science fair in the early 1980s with a program called Future Teacher written on a ZX81 computer. It came in last place as the consensus of the judges was that there would never be a place for computers in education. Undeterred, Clauson maintained his enthusiasm for technology and it eventually grew into a desire to see its potential realized in healthcare. After completing his doctor of pharmacy at the University of Tennessee – Memphis and a research fellowship at the University of Missouri – Kansas City, he helped create the Center for Consumer Health Informatics Research at Nova Southeastern University.
