Andrea Brewer
About

Andrea Brewer (LaFontaine) is an Indigenous Pharmacist currently practicing in Regina, Saskatchewan on Treaty 4 Territory where she was born and raised. She is Metis/Saulteaux, from Muskowekwan First Nation, on her father’s side. She received a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy in 2007 from the University of Saskatchewan and completed a hospital pharmacy residency in 2008 from Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region.  With over 15 years of experience working in hospital, long term care, medical clinics and community retail pharmacies, Andrea is committed to practicing clinically to her full scope of practice as an injection certified, prescribing pharmacist.  Andrea’s focus is on optimizing and minimizing the use of pharmaceutical medications and helping people make informed decisions that honour personal values. She also has over 10 years experience as a Certified Diabetes Educator providing direct patient care to people living with diabetes in collaboration with other practitioners. Other interests and expertise include pain management, mental health and skin disease among others.   

 Andrea works privately, out of her office located inside Origins Dermatology Centre, as an independent consultant who provides health related services, private medication counseling, workshops and public speaking. Her mission is to remove barriers and improve access to health care that is preventative, holistic, evidence based and culturally sensitive. One way Andrea is growing her independent practice is by visiting remote and on reserve First Nations communities in Saskatchewan.   

When she is not working on the front lines in health care, Andrea enjoys live music, yoga and spending time with her husband and two sons who are from Garden Hill First Nation.

Online booking is available for general medication assessments or diabetes consultations.
