Dr. Jeannene M. Ward-Lonergan

Jeannene M. Ward-Lonergan, Ph.D. is a Professor in the Department of Speech-Language Pathology at the University of the Pacific.  Dr. Ward-Lonergan was originally a special education teacher and often spent time teaching children who had difficulty speaking, listening, reading, and writing. After taking some post-baccalaureate courses, she became very interested in speech-language pathology and decided to pursue a career in this field, which is a profession that she absolutely loves.

“What gives me motivation to continue teaching is working with students who are enthusiastic about the profession and research,” said Dr. Ward-Lonergan. “There is much important work to be done and so many questions that need to be answered in our field.  This is what keeps me going,” she added.

Dr. Ward-Lonergan has served as a faculty advisor to many graduate students conducting research. Aside from her own research interests in expository discourse and literacy development and disorders, she helps guide her graduate students in multicultural research. Many of these investigations are among the few multicultural studies conducted on specific topics in the field of speech-language pathology, and the results have been presented at national and state conventions. For example, one of her advisees, Mary Xiong ’12, conducted research on the “Earliest Words Produced and Understood by Bilingual Hmong/English Speaking Infants/Toddlers”.  No other known study is available related to this topic, and the results of this study have very important clinical implications for speech/language assessment and intervention.  Another advisee, Norma Gonzalez ’11, surveyed over 470 speech-language pathologists in California to assess perceptions of their training and confidence levels in serving patients from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds.

In the future, she plans to expand her research program and publish additional articles. She also plans to maintain active involvement in her students’ research projects and to continually strive for excellence in teaching.

“I feel very fortunate to be here at Pacific because the students are wonderful, and there is a cohesive group of faculty and staff in my department.  I look forward to continuing to enhance my research and teaching at Pacific for many years to come.” commented Dr. Ward-Lonergan.

Dr. Ward-Lonergan graduated from Saint Joseph College with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1984. She later earned her Master of Science degree from Boston University in 1989 and her Doctor of Philosophy degree from the University of Connecticut in 1995. She has been a faculty member at University of the Pacific since 1999. Recently, Dr. Ward-Lonergan was promoted to full professor. She currently resides in Sacramento with her husband and two children. She enjoys working at the University of the Pacific because of its student-centered environment and the positive interactions between the faculty and the students. Her hobbies include swimming, snow-skiing, dancing, and reading. She also enjoys theater and travel.

 

 

 

 

Lucy Pacheco ’12

When people think of college, a variety of ideas may come to mind but any college student will say that there are many myths attached to the idea of college. With their new found freedom, students quickly learn that they must find balance between their academics and social life. While this may not prove to be the easiest task, Lucy Pacheco ’12, student of the Speech-Language Pathology program, has successfully learned this balance of pursuing her dream career in speech-language pathology while still leaving a lasting impact at Pacific and in the community.

Pacheco was born in Stockton, California and raised in Linden, California. After graduating from Linden High School, Lucy started her education at University of the Pacific as a psychology major. It was not until her second semester of her sophomore year that she took Introduction to Speech-Language Pathology and became intrigued by the field. “It was through this course that I learned the need for bilinguals”, Pacheco explained, “and I always knew I wanted to help kids. I also liked the diverse options of the work settings.”

Pacheco found her passion in speech-language pathology but it was not always an easy road to pursue. She confessed that “since I’m a first generation student, it was hard to find available resources.” Her family did not attend college so it was difficult for them to provide the resources and guidance she sought when she faced struggles in her college career. One person who encouraged her when she doubted herself was Allison Dumas, Associate Director of the SUCCESS program here at Pacific. “Allison helped me a lot. She believed in me and encouraged me to continue my education.”

In addition to Lucy’s proficiency in her academics, she also decided to involve herself in campus life through the Pacific National Student Speech-Hearing Language Association (NSSHLA). Pacheco joined the association in fall of 2010 and thought it was a great opportunity for personal development. “I wanted to get to know my peers. I also knew it was a great way to practice collaborative work, which is very important in our professional careers.” NSSHLA recently partnered with Panda Express to host fundraisers where 10 percent of their proceeds will go to the students. Another fundraiser idea that member Charlotte Austin ’12 has come up with was to sell wristbands to the community. With all the money they have raised, they hope to purchase at least one iPad for the Scottish Rite Childhood Language Disorder Center.

Pacheco has come a long way from her small town in Linden. It has not always been the easiest journey pursing her passion as a speech-language pathologist but she has found encouragement along the way. As she continues to find success, she has not forgotten those who have helped her on her journey. She expressed extreme gratitude to her professors for having such an organized program and providing a fun and enthusiastic environment to learn. She looks forward to graduating with the rest of her classmates this May. As Lucy’s undergraduate experience comes to a close and a new chapter of her life is soon to begin, she reminds others interested in pursuing a career in speech-language pathology that “if you really want something, just go for it. Essentially, you will get to where you want to be because of your drive.”

 

 

 

Rho Chi Talent Show: Superheroes and Villains

On March 14, Rho Chi Honor Society hosted the annual talent show with this year’s theme, Superheroes and Villains. The annual tradition which featured acts by both students and faculty is meant to foster fellowship.

“It is a fun and entertaining way to bring the students and professors together and share in each other’s talents and have our minds escape from the stresses in school,” says Rho Chi Society Beta Omega Chapter Vice President Nader Tossoun ’13. “There’s something very special about the way music and arts bring people together and I believe it really helps the students and the professors appreciate each other in a whole different way outside the classroom.”

The night opened with a hilarious video of emcees Kin Lam ’13 and Antoinette Dinh ’13 setting the tone for an exciting night of performances.

Among the performers was Erika Cho, an undergraduate student and brother of Phi Delta Chi. “It was a little nerve racking especially because it was in a room full of my peers,” says Erika. She sang “The One That Got Away” along with Phi Delta Chi brothers Ashley Rummel, and Irene Andrada, while Daniel Lieu ’13 provided the beat. “I still had a lot of fun though knowing my brothers were supporting me.”

The night ended with the Fraternity Battle where pharmacy fraternities Kappa Psi, Phi Delta Chi, Rho Pi Phi, and Lambda Kappa Sigma’s pledges compete. “It’s probably one of the most memorable events of the night and the perfect way to end the show because the room is always filled with an excited-sense of school spirit,” says Nader.

The talent show however, wouldn’t be as exciting without a little competition. The winners of this year’s talent show are:

First Place: Suzie Tashdjian ’13, “It Will Rain” by Bruno Mars
Second Place: Brothers of Rho Pi Phi, Rho Pi Phly
Third Place: Joseph Mishreki ’13, Melody Nash, and Randall Gee, “One Woman Man” by Aaliyah
Special Mention: Dr. Timothy Smith, “Joanne”
Winner of the Fraternity Battle: Brothers of Kappa Psi

Dr. Smith, who performed a song he composed himself, amazed the crowd with his acoustic performance. “It’s amazing how our peers and professors surprise us every year when they get up on stage and share their hidden talents with us,” says Nader.

With all the surprises from this year, who knows what next year’s talent show will bring!

Fighting for Our Rights: Pharmacists and Students Advocate for Pharmacy at Legislative Day

Cholestrol testing was one of the many free health services offered that day.

On Tuesday, March 20, students and pharmacists from across the state traveled to the steps of the Capitol in Sacramento, CA to advocate for the pharmacy profession at Legislative Day. They met with legislators to talk about protecting the future and integrity of our profession. This year, for the first time, California Society of Health-System Pharmacists (CSHP) and California Pharmacists Association (CPhA) joined together for a combined Legislative Day. Participants spoke with legislators on three separate bills that will further our profession and increase accessibility of patient care.

Thirty-five students from Pacific joined this event, meeting with other pharmacy students, faculty, and pharmacists. In addition to meeting with legislators, Pacific pharmacy students held free health screenings on the steps of the Capitol as a way to further advocate for our profession and provide free services to the public. Health screenings included blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol testing. This health fair was spear-headed by Barrett Smith ’13, Academy of Student Pharmacists (ASP) Vice President of Professional Affairs.

Legislative Day was a great opportunity for pharmacy students to learn about the legislative process and join the effort to ensuring the future of pharmacy. “The CSHP/CPhA Legislative Day was a great experience that gave us the opportunity to expand our understanding of how a bill becomes a law. In addition, meeting with state legislators allowed us as pharmacy students to take part in advocating for the future of our profession. Because upcoming legislation can have a huge effect on healthcare and pharmacy in particular, it is extremely important that we are actively involved in this process,” said Daniel Da Costa ’14.

Pharmacists and pharmacy students from across the state gather on the steps of the State Capitol for a quick photo before legislative appointments begin.

The participants discussed several key bills running through the state government with Assembly members and State Senators representing all districts of California. The first bill (AB 377) proposes a centralized off-site pharmacy building that would provide hospitals with bar-coded, filled prescriptions, as a way to reduce medication errors. The next key bill (AB 1447) discussed, if passed, would allow pharmacists to perform some clinical tests on patients without a lab director present. In addition, this bill would allow pharmacies to offer nonprescription tests patients can purchase and administer themselves. By allowing pharmacists to administer more services, it would help increase compliance and cut down on the cost of health care. The last bill, which has not been assigned a bill number, will work to revise the current Pharmacy Benefit Management (PBM) auditing process, to ensure claims are not retroactively denied due to trivial mistakes or typos. The bills presented not only help improve patient care and drive down prescription costs, but labor to expand the scope of the pharmacy profession.

This event showed the importance of advocating for the profession and becoming actively involved. By coming together, CSHP and CPhA were able to show the partnership between all pharmacists, no matter which field they may choose. Legislative Day was a successful event that will have a great impact on our future.

 

 

Dr. Todd Davenport

Graduate school can be a ton of work; luckily for the students of Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences’ Department of Physical Therapy, they have the support of great faculty like Assistant Professor Dr. Todd Davenport helping them succeed.

In the classroom, Dr. Davenport believes that a rigorous course doesn’t have to mean endless powerpoint slides. He mixes his lectures with humor, fun, and a sense of social purpose and believes that students of physical therapy should be able to enjoy the time they spend in the classroom by being able to apply it to the real world. After all, what good is a lecture on the biomechanics of throwing if all the knowledge students gain is simply written in notebooks?

“I hope that my students get a sense of how to manage stress and have fun working hard, like when we go outside in the sunshine to actually practice throwing a baseball after we’ve discussed the biomechanics of throwing, but also to develop themselves to be the best physical therapist they can be,” says Dr. Davenport. He also further encourages his students to apply their knowledge by reaching out to the Stockton community by providing them with curricular and co-curricular opportunities.

Dr. Davenport is one of the many faculty members who simply puts students first. “As Dean Oppenheimer likes to say, students are the main reason for our work rather than a small or peripheral part of it. This means we take our teaching very seriously, and I think it shows in the high-quality learning environment we maintain for our students,” he says.

Behind the scenes, Dr. Davenport does more than teach students—he’s one of the reasons Pacific’s Department of Physical Therapy is able to make the program effective by earning grants to support teaching, research, and community outreach activities. With the assistance of grant funding, the department is able to utilize iPod touches, iPads, and podcasting technologies to further enhance their students’ education. “Our faculty and students are able to stay on the leading edge of our profession through their scholarship, which is supported by grant funding from national physical therapy organizations,” explains Dr. Davenport.

Dr. Davenport knows the importance of involving the students, their families, and the community. He is able to support his students by attending many of their events. “The Pacific 5K Tiger Dash and 1/2 Mile Cub Run and the Perfect 10 program are both student-initiated and student-run events. The creativity, hard work, and compassion that our students demonstrate every year to prepare and conduct these activities, even despite the rigorous academic demands of our program, is truly inspirational,” says Dr. Davenport.

All in all, Dr. Davenport is a dedicated professor and his students always come first. Whether it’s to help his students achieve an “a-ha!” moment in the classroom or to play an intramural basketball game, the students in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program consider themselves lucky to have a professor like Dr. Davenport.

 

 

AMCP Hosts Special Guest Speaker Dr. Catherine Misquitta

On March 14, 2012, the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP) invited guest speaker Dr. Catherine Misquitta ’96 to discuss with students her journey on becoming a managed care pharmacist.

Dr. Misquitta graduated from University of the Pacific in 1996 and completed her residency in pharmacy practice at University of California Davis. She then completed a clinical based residency at Marshal Hospital where she helped integrate pharmacists in the hospital to have a more active role. “In the early days, pharmacists were not allowed to write on charts but before I left things changed; pharmacists were expected to be on the floor with the doctors and write on charts”, said Dr. Misquitta. After building her experience at Marshal Hospital, she started to work for the California Pharmacists Association (CPhA) as a clinical coordinator and worked her way up to director. After years of hard work and dedication, she was given the opportunity to work with Health Net where she now enjoys her career as a managed care pharmacist.

Dr. Misquitta has worked in managed care for 12 years and explained why she loves her career at Health Net so much. “Well, I get paid to be a pharmacist!” Dr. Misquitta said humorously, then added, “Health Net is in the Western region (of the United States) and is a smaller organization compared to Kaiser but I still have job security and there is never a same day.” She elaborated on some of her job responsibilities, including analyzing drugs in phase three development before the Food and Drug Administration approves them, as well as figuring out a system to improve adherence for the patients who are not taking their medication regularly. Dr. Misquitta shared her passion for her career as a managed care pharmacist and informed her attentive students that Health Net offers accredited residencies if they are interested in joining one of their multiple programs.

The Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy presented a wonderful opportunity for students to get more insight on managed care from Dr. Misquitta. Anil Mallya ’13 said that “we (AMCP) try to educate students in fields they don’t really know about.” Lalitkumar Rajora ’14 also shared that Dr. Misquitta discussed a very different aspect of pharmacy compared to what they learn in the classroom. While students are still learning how to become pharmacists, Dr. Misquitta gave them a new perspective of pharmacy by sharing her experience as a managed care pharmacist and made them think of another avenue in pharmacy worth pursuing.

Student Spotlights: Community outreach helps create lifelong friendships

In November 2011, Allison Tieszen ’12 and Chrissy Hauer ’12 along with Dr. Sandra Bellamy ’97, ’99, ’03participated in the Rotary International Wheelchair Distribution in Antigua, Guatemala. Tieszen and Hauer were chosen among 10 physical therapy students who applied for this unique and life changing opportunity.

Allison, Dr. Bellamy, and Chrissy takes a break to enjoy the beauty of Guatemala.

For one week, the students spent their time traveling and customizing wheelchairs at Hope Haven International making it possible for 58 individuals to be mobile for the first time. Tieszen reflected on her experience working with a seven year old girl named Fatimah who suffered from cerebral palsy and has had over eight surgeries. Tieszen was able to help customize a wheelchair and walker for Fatimah to help her take her first steps.

“It is really about early interventions and making a child comfortable so we can help increase their quality of life,” said Tieszen.

Prior to the trip, Tieszen and Hauer had little experience in assembling wheelchairs but said their educational background provided them the knowledge they needed to give suggestions and provide the best fit for patients.

“There was definitely a learning curve but we were able to apply the knowledge that we received in our coursework and experience we have gained from clinicals. We were able to pull a lot of what we know and apply it to new environments to provide different services,” commented Hauer.

“It takes a lot of problem-solving skills and quick and outside-the-box thinking because there is no set manual,” added Tieszen.

Tieszen and Hauer have presented about their trip at seven local Rotary locations and once in class. They said it was through a similar presentation by former students that inspired them to participate. After spending a week with their group in Guatemala, which they said they’ve made life long connections with, Tieszen and Hauer’s ultimate goal is to inspire people and make a difference.

“I don’t look at wheelchairs the same. I have a completely different level of understanding and respect,” said Hauer. “This trip has allowed me to share a connection with Allison and Dr. Bellamy that will last for many years,” she added.

Hauer knew of Rotary through her mother-in-law but growing up in Wyoming, Tieszen had never heard of it until now. None the less, the student physical therapists are determined to make Rotary International a lifelong friendship. They hope to continue working with Rotary and stay involved so they can continue to participate in similar trips.

“Overall, we are so thankful for this opportunity and experience,” said Hauer.

 

 

Student pharmacists receive multiple recognition at professional meeting

 

Pacific’s Operation Heartburn (OH) committee was recognized as the Regional Winner of APhA’s Heartburn Awareness Challenge. Operation Heartburn hosted events such as heartburn presentations to the elderly in a retirement home, nutritional education to children at an elementary school, and distributed heartburn education materials and consultations at various health fairs providing nearly 300 patients with health and wellness/clinical services. The members of the committee include two second year pharmacy students, Tammie Minh Nguyen ‘12 and Johnny Chau ‘12, and two first year students, Dina Hoang ‘13 and Joseph Mishreki ‘13.

The Heartburn Awareness Challenge is a patient care project that provides pharmacy students an opportunity to develop their presentation and clinical skills while educating the public about heartburn. The goal of this project is to help make the public aware of heartburn by means of recommending lifestyle modifications, nonprescription medications, or referral to their physician.

Pacific’s Academy of Student Pharmacists (ASP) received the Chapter Policy and Legislative Award for their efforts in promoting American Pharmacist Month. The students ran advertisement campaigns at airports, public transportation, and on television at The Price is Right.

Chapters compete for one of thirteen awards that actively promote the mission of APhA-ASP. Evaluation of chapter activities is based upon criteria such as originality of programs, number of chapter members involved, impact on the community, benefit to student pharmacists and collaboration with other healthcare organizations. Chapters are also evaluated on their year-to-year progress, particularly in relation to chapter activities and membership retention.

Strong student representation at CPhA

Student pharmacists proudly represented Pacific at the California Pharmacists Association Outlook annual meeting. The event was held in Sacramento, CA from February 2-5, 2012.

Last year, Julie Na ’12 competed in Pacific’s Academy of Student Pharmacist (ASP) Patient Counseling Competition and took home first place to represent Pacific at the state level. At Outlook, Julie continued to impress the judges and will be representing California at the American Pharmacists Association (APhA) Annual Meeting in New Orleans, LA.

Elizabeth Chang ’12, Han Duong ‘13, Melissa Kuo ’12, Michelle Najibi ‘13, and Jerlin Hsin ’12 placed second in the CPhA Quiz Bowl.

Han also partnered with Keira Domer ’13 and proposed a new policy to be reviewed by CPhA’s Policy Committee next year. Han conceived the idea and approached Keira (who has previous experience writing policies for the APhA Midyear Regional Meetings and actually had a policy approved by the House of Delegates in 2010) to help her put the policy into writing.

The purpose of the policy is to develop limited prescriptive rights for certified community pharmacists drawn from a standardized formulary approved jointly by the California State Board of Pharmacy and the Board of Medicine in efforts to decrease the burden on medical and emergency medical systems and to fully recognize and utilize community pharmacists as providers of front-line healthcare.

“Quite often, the primary form of medical care for these citizens is the emergency room of an already burdened system. If you allow community pharmacists to prescribe for limited purposes such as minor infections and birth control, perhaps we can remove some of that burden from our medical peers and that system of care,” commented Domer.

To make sure their policy is heard and in a forward moving process, Domer will be serving on one of CPhA’s reference committees slated to meet this summer. As a committee member, she will be able to discuss and review their proposed policy as well as other policies and business related items. If successful, Duong and Domer will present and defend their policy once more before the House of Delegates at CPhA Outlook 2013 in Monterey, CA.

 

Dr. William Kehoe named Central Valley Pharmacist of the Year

In January, William Kehoe ’96, Pharm.D., MA, FCCP, BCPS, Professor and Chair, Department of Pharmacy Practice, was named Pharmacist of the Year for the Central Valley Society of Health-System Pharmacists.

“It is humbling to receive this acknowledgement from the local community of pharmacists, great pharmacists who I respect, that I work with all the time,” he said. “It’s rewarding to know that you have made an impact on people’s lives to some extent and to have colleagues affirm that you have done a good job,” he added.

When Dr. Kehoe speaks about his accomplishments his passion for clinical pharmacy and patient care comes through. His passion was inspired by his residency at the University of California at San Francisco where he said faculty and administrators instilled a drive in their students to be on the cutting edge in moving clinical pharmacy forward. Believing that patient-care is the utmost important aspect of pharmacy, his goal is to influence students to “catch the fire in them that will motivate them to do more”.

Dr. Kehoe believes in giving back to the community and works hard to spread clinical pharmacy skills abroad. Much of his travels to Asia include visits to Korea, China, and Singapore. His first mission trip as a clinical pharmacist abroad(he worked at a mission clinic in China in 1988) was life changing. He recalls being surrounded by doctors and nurses and being confused about what his role was. “I wasn’t sure why I was there and they weren’t sure of the pharmacist’s role. So I spent some time straightening out a closet,” said Dr. Kehoe.

The course of Dr. Kehoe’s time there changed when Pastor Chan, a clinic patient who suffered from colon cancer, came in needing help with chemotherapy treatments. The clinic had never provided chemotherapy treatments before and was unsure of the procedures. During Dr. Kehoe’s residency rotation at San Francisco General Hospital he helped with chemotherapy clinic set-up. With this experience, he was able to help Pastor Chan and as a result teach the clinic how to provide chemotherapy treatments.

“There was a reason why I was there. And now when I look back I know that,” he said.

Dr. Kehoe believes that if an individual works hard and does their job, then good things will happen. He says his career is a testimony to this. When he measures his success, what is most prominent is the years of service he has dedicated to his patients, students, and the community, not the number of publications and presentations he has completed.

“I am blessed to have a good education and to work at Pacific. Both of which have allowed me to go out into the community and make a difference,” said Dr. Kehoe.

At the end of the day, Dr. Kehoe says his most important roles are being a husband and a father.

Dr. Kehoe is a clinical pharmacist at St. Joseph’s Behavioral Health Center and at Green Brothers Pharmacy, both in Stockton. He also serves as a consultant in clinical psychopharmacology for the developmentally disabled at Valley Mountain Regional Center, Stockton, CA. In addition, he serves as co-chair on the Pharmacy Quality Assurance Mental Health workgroup. Dr. Kehoe is a Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist by the Board of Pharmacy Specialties, and is certified in Applied Pharmacology by the American Board of Clinical Pharmacology.

Dr. Kehoe graduated from University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) with a Bachelor of Arts in biology, University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) with a doctor of pharmacy, and University of the Pacific with a Masters in psychology with an emphasis in behavioral medicine. Dr. Kehoe completed a residency in hospital and clinical pharmacy at UCSF. He currently teaches in the areas of neurological and psychiatric pharmacotherapy, behavioral medicine and health psychology.

AMCP Hosts Local P&T Competition

Every year, the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy and the Foundation for Managed Care Pharmacy hold a competition for student pharmacists to experience the formulary management process, called the Pharmacy and Therapeutics (P&T) Competition. This involves analyzing the product dossier using AMCP’s Format for Formulary Submissions.

This year the product under evaluation was Pradaxa – a medication indicated for non-valvular atrial fibrillation. A record of nine teams, each consisting of four members, participated in the local P&T Competition. Each team used their research and critical analysis skills to assess the available scientific evidence, as well as their presentation skills to accompany their 15-page monograph and 15-page report. These teams have been working diligently since October. Three teams advanced to the semi-final round to present in front of the P&T Committee on January 30th. The winning team of the 2012 AMCP-Pacific P&T Competition consisted of Robert Chirk ’12, Tong Lee ‘12, Lamont Vuong ‘13, and Kristen Ward ’14. They went on to compete in the national competition and made it to the top 15 semifinalist, out of 29 teams who competed.

The 2012 AMCP-Pacific P&T Competition winning team (from left to right): Lamont Vuong ’13, Robert Chirk ’12, Tong Lee ’12, and Kristen Ward ’14.

Vuong, a returning contender, learned that “experience matters a lot. What you learn each year can be passed down to the next year which makes a difference in strengthening the team.” The P&T competition is one that will allow students “to learn more about what managed care was all about,” says Ward. She continues to say that she has learned “an insurmountable amount of information in such a short time by being a part of this competition and recommends it to anyone looking to learn something outside of the curriculum.“ Congratulations to the winning team and all participating teams for taking the challenge to demonstrate managed care pharmacy skills.

AMCP-Pacific would like to give a special thanks to Dr. Allen Shek for his guidance throughout the chapter’s P&T Competition, as well as Dr. Raj Patel ’01, ‘06, Drs. Johnathan Yeh and Jonathan Szkotak from Health Plan of San Joaquin, and Dr. Joanna Liu from Health Net for providing their time and expertise to evaluate and judge the submissions and presentations.

School featured in 2012 American Pharmacists Association’s News Segment

A Legacy of Leadership

Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences was among several Schools/Colleges featured in the American Pharmacists Association’s (APhA) News Segment this year. This video along with others was shown at the 2012 APhA Annual Meeting and Exposition in New Orleans, LA in March and will be featured on the APhA website.
