Matt Weber receives award

Decatur County Memorial Hospital’s Ambulatory Care Pharmacist Matt Weber, PharmD,
recently received the Patient & Family Experience Award from the Indiana State Office of Rural
Health. Annually, the Indiana Department of Health’s State Office of Rural Health awards those
making a difference in rural healthcare for their outstanding achievements.
As an ambulatory care pharmacist, Matt meets with patients who need consultation regarding
their prescriptions and managing their chronic conditions, including diabetes, hypertension, and
obesity. In his role, Matt collaborates with DCMH providers to create individualized care plans
for each patient. In 2022, Matt established a program that provides individualized education and
information to patients. Matt received this honor for his visionary efforts to provide diabetes
education and support for his patients and their families.
Matt accepted the award during the presentation. He thanked the Indiana Department of
Health’s State Office of Rural Health for the recognition, adding, “We’ve had great success, and
it is really exciting to see the improvements in people’s health and blood sugar and their
engagement once they understand what diabetes is and how it impacts them.”
Those experiencing chronic conditions and interested in consultation and education should
contact Matt Weber, PharmD, at 812-663-1217.
