The pronunciation of Trulicity® (dulaglutide) is the focus of this episode. In my pronunciation episodes, I say a drug name, break it down into syllables, explain which syllable or syllable(s) have the emphasis, reveal the source(s) of the information, and put the written pronunciation in the show notes so that you see it and and use it right away.
Having a colleague pick the drug name worked so well last month with Dr. Jennifer Marquez (May 2022) that I asked Allana Alexander, PharmD to pick the drug name for June 2022. If you’re interested in recommending the drug name for a future pronunciation episode on The Pharmacist’s Voice Podcast, contact me through my website www.thepharmacistsvoice.com. Just click on the “Contact” tab, and either fill out the form or leave me a voicemail message.
Thank you for listening to The Pharmacist’s Voice ® Podcast Episode 155!
