Mar 22, 2010

The Ohio Northern University Raabe College of Pharmacy is the focus of the Discovery Channel’s “The Profiles Series” set to air on Monday, March 29, at 7 a.m.

The series will examine the rigor of pharmacy training and the ever-expanding role of pharmacists as members of the health care team. Viewers also will learn about the quality pharmacy education students have been receiving for more than 125 years at the University. The Raabe College of Pharmacy’s academic program is the only one in the country where students receive six years of direct exposure to the pharmacy profession.

“The ‘Profile Series’ addresses some of the same critical issues we face teaching our current students and interacting with pharmacists nationwide. Pharmacogenetics, geriatrics and health care reform will have an impact on the future,” said Dr. Jon Sprague, dean of the college. “Ohio Northern continues to move the profession of pharmacy forward in many different areas.”

An award-winning program, “The Profiles Series” is dedicated to showcasing the most important issues of the day. In the past, the series has featured the latest business and technology stories to revolutionary medical and health issues. It also profiles programs from environmental solutions to current educational breakthroughs.
