the Prescription Volume 4, Issue 1 Winter 2012 Celebrating our Silver Anniversary A special milestone is upon us – the 25th anniversary of the School of Pharmacy is being celebrated from Sept. 1, 2011 through Aug. 31, 2012. Flashback to September 1986. That’s when for the first 30 students began classes on the first floor of the Health Sciences Centre under the leadership of the school’s first director, the late Dr. Gerald R. Duncan. The School of Pharmacy turning 25 brings the opportunity to reflect on all that has been accomplished. Since 1990, we have graduated 745 students. We are proud to know that they now work in every corner of our province and country, as well as around the world, in all aspects of pharmaceutical practice and research. The education of pharmacists in Newfoundland and Labrador is second to none thanks to the many people who have played a role in its ongoing development. Individuals – students, alumni, staff, faculty, preceptors – professional organizations and industry have all had a part in the school’s advancement. The School of Pharmacy owes much to the outstanding leadership of its directors and dean – Dr. Gerry Duncan, Dr. Chris Loomis and Dr. Linda Hensman – each of whom has played a pivotal role in creating a tradition of excellence in pharmacy education. Celebration activities marking this amazing milestone are being held throughout the year. We look forward to celebrating with all of you! inside Dean’s Address to PANL 2 Recruitment 4 In this issue: Events 6 Awards 10 New Staff 14 Giving to the SOP 15 Notables 16 School of Pharmacy
