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.
