Bio

Dr. Wilkins, owner of AgeVital Pharmacy, Research and Wellness, VitalRx, and Vital life Institute, spent almost two decades of full-time study in college, gaining a wide breadth of knowledge, but he earned his PharmD at the prestigious University of Florida program which is the top pharmacy program in Florida and is perennially ranked in the top 10 nationally.  With this detailed education of chemical effects in the body, and with his additional experience in law, finance, and physics,  Dr. Wilkins has developed a passion for getting to the root of biological problems, looking for the origins of disease, the “first causes” of physical malfunction.

Combining practical laboratory experience with an in-depth study of published clinical research, Dr. Wilkins has become an expert in the field of medical cannabis, extraction, and application.
