Oladapo Named to Powers Fellowship

Oladapo Abiola Oladapo, a graduate student in the Division of Health Outcomes & Pharmacy Practice is one of 29 graduate students across campus to be named as a 2012-2013 Powers Fellow.

Oladapo studies with Dr. Jamie Barner, professor of health outcomes and pharmacy practice.  His research aims to evaluate medication use patterns of Rheumatoid Arthritis patients on biologic agents and its impact on patients' healthcare utilization costs using Texas Medicaid data.

Information from his research can be used to promote better medication use behavior, improve treatment outcomes and optimize treatment costs among RA patients.  It may also influence how physicians prescribe these medications in RA management.

In addition to the Powers Fellowship, Aladapo is recipient of the David Burton Jr. Graduate School Fellowship, the Johnson & Johnson Endowment Fellowship, and the American Society of Quality Control Fellowship.  In 2009, he was awarded the Texas Excellence Teaching Award for his work as a teaching assistant.

The Powers Graduate Fellowship Program was created in 2009 from a donation through the Foundation for Global Sports Development. These fellowships are among the most prestigious fellowships awarded by the UT Graduate School with recipients considered to be among the most academically competitive scholars on the UT Austin campus.
