Pharmacy student awarded Good Neighbor Pharmacy® Scholarship
Kari Colman, a sixth-year student in Ohio Northern University’s Raabe College of Pharmacy and native of Arcadia, Ohio, was awarded the inaugural Good Neighbor Pharmacy Scholarship on Feb. 28.
In 2010, ONU partnered with AmerisourceBergen Corporation to create the Good Neighbor Pharmacy Endowed Scholarship Fund, which is available to ONU pharmacy students seeking a career in retail community pharmacy.
For scholarship consideration, pharmacy students must show an interest in practicing in a community retail setting and be an active member of the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) student organization.
ONU has one of the strongest NCPA student chapters in the country, as demonstrated by its winning the national NCPA Chapter of The Year award in both 2010 and 2011. Dr. Deirdre Myers, ONU pharmaceutics laboratory instructor and pharmacy instructor for pharmaceutical and biomedical sciences, recently won the NCPA National Advisor of the Year award.
