Annual pharmacy lecture established in honor of Albert Sebok

Jul 30, 2009
ADA — Ohio Northern University’s Raabe College of Pharmacy has established the Sebok Pharmacy Lecture, an endowed annual lecture that will bring leaders of the pharmacy profession to speak at ONU.

The Sebok Pharmacy Lecture is named after Dr. Albert A. Sebok, a 1953 graduate of the College of Pharmacy and one of its most distinguished alumni.

Sebok served as an original member of ONU’s Pharmacy Advisory Board and has maintained a relationship with the University for more than 60 years. For the past 20 years, he has taught the Contemporary Pharmacy Practice course at ONU. Sebok also enjoyed a long career at Revco Drug Stores, where he served as vice president of operations for the largest drug chain in America. He was honored in 1991 with the NACDS Pratt Award, which recognized his leadership in chain drug pharmacy.

“It’s a real honor for our college to initiate the Sebok Pharmacy Lecture during our college’s 125th anniversary,” said Dr. Jon E. Sprague, professor of pharmacology and dean of the College of Pharmacy. “Dr. Sebok’s dedication, service and leadership to our college and the profession of pharmacy inspire us all. The Sebok Pharmacy Lecture will provide valuable insight to our current and future pharmacy students as they learn the profession and develop their leadership skills.”

Steven Anderson, CEO of the National Association of Chain Drug Stores, will kick off the lecture series on Jan. 19, 2010, as part of the college’s 125th anniversary celebration.
