Dr. Donald Shirachi ’60 Celebrates His 80th Birthday

September 25th, 2012 by Pacific PaHS Alumni

Dr. Donald Y. Shirachi ‘60, Professor Emeritus, recently celebrated his 80th birthday at the Morada home of Fred ‘74 and Karen Norman.  Alumni and faculty guests included Herb ‘61 and Gloria Low of Los Banos and Newark; Mitch ‘74 and Mary ‘73 Hoggard of Chico; and Jim, Professor Emeritus, and Lola Blankenship of Stockton. Barbara, from Dr. Shirachi’s University of California, San Francisco post–doctoral days, and Ron Jacobs of Clayton also joined in the festivities.

Dr. Shirachi is currently collaborating with Dr. Ray Quock, former Pacific faculty, at Washington State University studying the neuropharmacological effects of hyperbaric oxygen in acute and neuropathic pain. He also enjoys travel at home and abroad, visiting family and friends.

Every year, Dr. Shirachi awards an annual pharmacy scholarship in memory of his parents, the George and Mickie Shirachi Memorial Scholarship at the School.

Happy Birthday Dr. Shirachi!
