Cardinal Health Continues Support of Future Pharmacists with 2015 Scholarship Funding Exceeding $1 Million

DUBLIN, Ohio, July 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its continued commitment to supporting future pharmacists, Cardinal Health announced that 10 pharmacy schools across the country will collectively receive more than $1 million in funding through the Cardinal Health Pharmacy Scholarship Program in 2015.

The company has donated more than $5 million to 28 universities through this program since its launch in June 2011. All scholarship winners will also receive an all-expenses paid trip to attend a pharmacy ownership workshop at University of South Carolina.

"We understand the impact independent pharmacists have on their communities, and the significant role they play in providing cost-effective care that improves patients' health," said Jon Giacomin, chief executive officer of Cardinal Health's Pharmaceutical segment. "Supporting future community pharmacy leaders through this scholarship program is an honor, and we continue to be inspired by the next generation of innovative, patient-focused pharmacy owners as they begin serving their communities."

  • Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee
  • North Dakota State University in Fargo, North Dakota
