News From the Dean
The School of Pharmacy continues to create new paths on many fronts. As we seek to steward the wisdom that God grants us, we have taken on numerous initiatives, and you'll read about many of them in this issue of BenchmaRx. Perhaps our biggest highlight of the semester is the grand opening of Cedar Care Village Pharmacy. We have been told by our wholesaler that we are one of the most successful pharmacy openings in the U.S. We surpassed their five-month goals for us by the end of week one! You'll also read about a live, nationally broadcast opioid town hall meeting we hosted, as well as our graduate NAPLEX and job placement success and our class of 2019's impressive ASHP residency match results. Among these many blessings, our scholarship endowments and our research grants continue to grow. God has indeed been faithful!
Finally, I would like to honor and thank Dr. Dennis Sullivan for his faithful investment into the School of Pharmacy and Center for Bioethics. Dr. Sullivan retired at the end of the 2018-19 academic year.
