Three new assistant editors of the Journal of Managed Care Pharmacy (JMCP) are pharmacy educators at AACP member schools: Dr. Laura E. Happe (Presbyterian College), Dr. Karen L. Rascati (The University of Texas at Austin) and Dr. Eleanor Perfetto (University of Maryland). JMCP is the official peer-reviewed journal of the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP).
“We are very pleased that these three well-published researchers agreed to share their expertise with JMCP authors,” said Editor-in-Chief John Mackowiak, Ph.D. “With their extraordinary experience, qualifications and commitment, Drs. Happe, Rascati and Perfetto will boost JMCP’s reputation as a widely read and quoted journal describing cutting-edge research and practices in managed care today.”
“The Journal now has the team in place to take AMCP’s strategic commitment to supporting innovative research to the next level,” added JMCP Publisher and AMCP CEO Edith A. Rosato, R.Ph., IOM. “With Drs. Happe, Rascati and Perfetto on board, JMCP will bring to the fore the kind of research that will accelerate improvements in care delivery and patient outcomes.”

“As word of that gets around, even more managed care authors will be submitting their best work to JMCP,” he said. “With this team of editors, we will be the go-to place for great research and commentary.”
