More than 200 golfers participated in the Second Annual Good
Neighbor Pharmacy (GNP)/ Institute for Community Pharmacy (ICP)
Scholarship Golf Classic on June 16 at the Robinson Ranch Golf Club in
Santa Clarita. With more than $150,000 raised, proceeds will benefit
students at the schools of pharmacy for Western University of Health
Sciences and USC.
Of the funds raised, $50,000 will be distributed to both pharmacy
schools at Western University and USC. Western University has designated
the funds as scholarships for students expressing a career interest in
independent community pharmacies.
According to Dr. Max Ray, dean of the Western University College of
Pharmacy, “”There is a growing interest among our students in independent
community pharmacy practice, and we are very pleased to be working
closely with GNP and ICP to promote this area of practice. The
scholarship funds that we have received for the past two years from the
GNP/ICP Scholarship Golf Classic have greatly benefitted students whose
career aspirations lie in that direction.””
The remaining $50,000 will be provided to ICP to develop innovative
continuing education programs for practicing independent pharmacists.
