With a desire to bring pharmacy services to a historically underserved neighborhood, Dr. Tracy M. Reed opened the TPD Pharmacy to serve the St. Louis community and beyond. A podiatrist by trade, Dr. Reed obtained her degree in Podiatric Medicine from the William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in Chicago, completed her Residency at Saint Barnabas Hospital, and has over 24 years of experience in the medical field.
Dr. Reed opened the TPD Pharmacy in the Walnut Park West neighborhood to improve access to prescription medicine in the community. “As a responsible medical professional, I felt the need to bring much-needed healthcare services to a challenged community,” said Dr. Reed. A noted community advocate, Dr. Reed also served as a Founding Director of the Missouri Foundation for Health and has actively participated with Big Brothers / Big Sisters of America and Top Ladies of Distinction, Inc.
“We are currently launching the “Just Around the Corner to a Healthier You” campaign in which we are asking physicians, churches, local officials, and more to help us develop an agenda to bring more health resources to the underserved Walnut Park community,” said Dr. Reed. “In addition, we will also partner with senior care facilities, home healthcare agencies, nursing, and rehabilitation homes to address the real needs of our patients.”
