The Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy has recently been awarded a Walgreens Diversity grant in the amount of $10,000. The purpose of the funding is to develop, implement and support programs that will have a positive impact and inspire more diversity in the student body of the School of Pharmacy.
According to School of Pharmacy Dean, Richard Stull, “Walgreens and the Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy share a worthy principle – to develop students who will positively impact the delivery of quality, equitable pharmacy care and provide enlightened leadership in addressing the health care needs of a diverse patient population. This grant will directly benefit our pharmacy program, our students and the communities that they serve. ”
