California School of Pharmacy to Encourage Students to Enter Independent

Pharmacy Sector

VALLEY FORGE, Pa., Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Good Neighbor Pharmacy, a network of nearly 2,800 independently owned and operated community pharmacies, pledged a major gift to University of the Pacific's Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in Stockton, Calif. The donation will endow "The Good Neighbor Pharmacy Endowed Chair in Entrepreneurial Pharmacy Practice" at the school. The donation was officially announced at an alumni and donor event at the annual meeting of the California Pharmacists Association in Sacramento last weekend.

"We are excited to have this opportunity to partner with Pacific," said David Neu, senior vice president of retail sales and marketing at AmerisourceBergen. "This GNP chair reinforces our commitment to community pharmacy. Furthermore, the University's programs align with Good Neighbor Pharmacy and its objective of expanding the role of the independent pharmacist."

The Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences grants degrees to approximately 200 pharmacy graduates each year. It's estimated that nearly one-third of the pharmacists schooled in California are graduates of Pacific. This faculty chair position will enable the implementation of a specialized track in Entrepreneurial Pharmacy Practice, which will prepare future pharmacists for innovative practice models and to assume ownership of private practice pharmacies offering specialized services that enhance patient care.

"University of the Pacific has been a leader in producing practice-ready pharmacists for over fifty years. Our legacy of innovation and our strong alliances with outstanding corporate partners continues with this generous gift from Good Neighbor Pharmacy," said Dr. Phillip Oppenheimer, dean of the School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. "This generous gift and the program it supports will allow us to meet our students' needs to obtain education in entrepreneurial practice, which will ultimately lead to better consumer service and patient care."

The donor has requested that the gift amount be kept confidential, but it will cover a significant portion of the estimated cost of establishing the new chair and its related programs.
