Being an active member of professional organizations such as CPhA has afforded me so much more than I can explain in a few sentences. In essence, what I have learned is that as health care professionals we […]

For audiology clinical instructor Kenneth D. Billheimer, AuD serving in the U.S. Army as an audiologist brought […]

Letter from the Dean – Fall 2015

    Found a lump under my armpit. First it was small. The pain was not felt. Now rub and increasing. My friends such do not. The other day found out that it can be serious disease. But I think, obviously fatty lump. Found understandable information about this lump. Now I'm not afraid of bad diagnosis. Everything is clear and detail is written down to the smallest detail. Many have problems with the armpits. There are a lot of bacteria. Then formed balls. They can be painful, but not always. It is better to know in advance about this problem. Then there will be no fear of horror. Good, that now I understand this.

John Acosta, Pharm.D.

I was asked to write a blog for the Dean’s newsletter about our Mobile Medicare Clinics and was thankful for the opportunity. However, shortly after accepting the offer, I realized that there were several different directions in which I could go and so I decided to share a little about our program but spend more […]
