Momentum St. Louis College of Pharmacy’s strategic plan, STLCOP 20/20, represents a vision of change. Today, we are gaining momentum in implementing this transformational plan. The past year has been a period of significant growth at the College, and our entire campus community is making great strides to impact the St. Louis area, the nation, and the world.

We are preparing our students to become the pharmacy leaders of tomorrow, and two have taken on significant national leadership roles through the Student National Pharmaceutical Association and the American Red Cross.

Serving the community is a vital part of the STLCOP experience. Each year, students, faculty, and staff volunteer thousands of hours to improve the community. The College was recognized for its effort by being named to the 2013 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. Our reach extends far beyond St. Louis, however. STLCOP offers opportunities to provide patient-centered care around the world through advanced pharmacy practice experiences. The College is also working to strengthen pharmacy training in South Africa. We also have partnerships in China, Ethiopia, Mexico, and Saudi Arabia, which provide opportunities to learn about other cultures and bring back ideas to improve health at home. To better meet the needs of our entire campus community, the College is undergoing a physical transformation. By spring 2015, we will add 213,000 square feet of floor space, which will include a large auditorium, several large classrooms, study areas, 30,000 square feet of research space, and a new library more than triple its current size. It’s an exciting time at the College, full of energy, promise, and innovation to usher in this new era in our history. Thank you for joining us on this journey. We could not achieve our bold vision without your support! Our students and faculty are setting examples of interprofessional collaboration. This past year, a group of STLCOP students teamed with Washington University students to increase medication adherence among patients with chronic conditions and won two national awards for their work. In addition, one of our faculty members is recognized for her interprofessional approach to patient-centered care and her groundbreaking work in women’s health.

Students, Faculty Impact Health Care Around the World International partnerships with nations like South Africa, China, Ethiopia, Mexico, and Saudi Arabia position St. Louis College of Pharmacy to be at the forefront of impacting health care worldwide. Through multiple new initiatives developed by the Office of International Programs and our faculty, the College is expanding its

Schafermeyer and two sixth-year STLCOP students visited Swaziland in summer 2012 as part of an advanced pharmacy practice experience (APPE). They worked with the Swaziland Ministry of Health and Management Services for Health to help develop a pharmacy assistant program at Southern Africa Nazarene University (SANU). Schafermeyer returned in summer 2013 with two other sixth-year students to continue supporting the SANU pharmacy assistant program and to work at a hospital and outpatient HIV/AIDS clinic. The students went on rounds with physicians, provided care to patients, and delivered in-service programs to the medical team. “It was extremely interesting to connect real patients with the topics we have been learning about in school,” says sixth-year student Jackie Wolf, who worked in Swaziland this past summer. “We may not have had the chance to see some of these disease states in the U.S., including tuberculosis and AIDS.” Due to the success of the Swaziland program, another international experience for students is being developed in China. In March 2013, Shin-Yu Lee, Pharm.D., assistant professor of pharmacy practice, traveled to Shanghai to establish an APPE rotation for STLCOP students at Fudan University’s School of Pharmacy.

other partnerships are being established in China, Ethiopia, Mexico, and Saudi Arabia.

“In collaboration with other colleagues at different schools of pharmacy, I recently published an American College of Clinical Pharmacy whitepaper on the importance of developing cultural competency in pharmacy education,” Lee says. “I thought it would be great if our students could go to another country to complete an experiential rotation and come back to STLCOP to share their experiences in

“The goal of the Office of International Programs is to promote cultural competence, emphasize the importance of a world view, enable students to think broadly about issues concerning humanity, and enhance the professional education of our student pharmacists,” says Ken Schafermeyer, Ph.D., director of the Office of International Programs.

learning about the different medications and pharmacotherapies that other cultures use.”

Peters, Pharm.D., assistant professor of pharmacy practice, traveled to Ethiopia’s Mekelle University in January 2013 to form a collaboration with the School of Pharmacy there. Peters will return to Ethiopia in January 2014 with two sixth-year STLCOP students who will be completing APPE rotations.

There are plans underway to send two STLCOP sixth-year students to China in February 2014. The students will experience different areas of a hospital, including the nephrology intensive care unit (ICU), neurology ICU, dermatology, and the integrative medicine clinic.

“Our students will work at Mekelle University’s hospital in the HIV pharmacy, outpatient pharmacy, and inpatient pharmacy,” Peters says. “One of the neatest things at the hospital is the model pharmacy that is used to show the community and other pharmacies what the standards of care should be. Patients can go there to see how it works and learn more about compounding practices and drug information.”

“A core part of our students’ experience in Shanghai will be learning more about integrative medicine like acupuncture and herbal medication,” Lee says. Lee is passionate about this new partnership and its implications for students. “I have seen students struggle with realizing how much culture and heritage can impact patients’ perception of health and how willing they are to accept certain treatment options,” she says. “These international APPE rotations will better equip our students to effectively provide care to patients from diverse backgrounds.”

Peters is excited about this new partnership. “It will be a life-changing opportunity for our students,” he says. “Being able to help other people and learn from other people is invaluable.” In addition, STLCOP is collaborating with Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) in South Africa to assist with

developing a pharmacy technical assistant program and pharmacy technician program. The College was selected by the American International Health Alliance for an $80,000 grant funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief. STLCOP was the only school of pharmacy in the U.S. selected to work in South Africa.

from NMMU visited STLCOP, and a larger group of College faculty and staff participated in that visit. Another partnership is being established with the Saudi National Guard Health Affairs in Saudi Arabia. In January 2013, STLCOP welcomed four students from Saudi Arabia into the professional program. All have pharmacy degrees from universities in Saudi Arabia and are hoping to develop their clinical skills at STLCOP. “The plan is to develop a student exchange program so that STLCOP students can also go to Saudi Arabia,” Schafermeyer says.

“There’s a need for about 2,500 additional pharmacy technicians per year in South Africa,” Schafermeyer says. “Pharmacy technicians there practice with limited supervision and are an excellent resource for delivering care for the more than 5 million HIV/AIDS patients in the country.”

All of these international initiatives will expose College students and faculty to other countries and strengthen pharmacy education. “These partnerships are mutually beneficial,” Schafermeyer says. “We’re not only sharing our knowledge with these other countries—we’re sending people around the world to learn about other health systems. We want them to see that there are other ways of approaching health care and pharmacy services.”

The plan calls for STLCOP faculty to share the same teaching methods used at the College, such as providing students with practical experience on how to interact with patients to improve their health. The College is also examining ways to involve STLCOP students in the project. A small team from the College made an initial visit to South Africa in May 2013. In September, two faculty members

Students Take on Significant Leadership Roles Leadership—it’s a word synonymous with St. Louis College of Pharmacy, where students are prepared to become the pharmacy leaders of tomorrow on a daily basis. Within the past year, two STLCOP students have become exemplary leaders in very different ways. Fifth-year student Dainielle Fox (pictured on the left) and third-year student Samantha Bryant (right) have taken on significant leadership roles in the pharmacy and health care communities.

As a graduate of Truman State University going into her first professional year at STLCOP, Fox was one of 50 students to transfer to the College at the start of the 2011-12 school year. To better fit in with their new classmates, these transfer students, including Fox, began to look at student organizations they could join. Many students settled on SNPhA, an organization that had been struggling on campus, but that was well respected at other pharmacy schools around the country.

Fox was named president-elect of the Student National Pharmaceutical Association (SNPhA) in July, and she will become president in January. SNPhA has 81 student chapters and approximately 4,000 members. She began her ascension to president-elect the day she set foot on campus.

“We decided that SNPhA was something we were passionate about,” she says. PG 8


20 1 2-1 3 A NNUA L RE P ORT

organization’s annual meeting. Simmons scheduled phone conferences for Fox, helped her develop a curriculum vitae (CV), and accompanied her to regional SNPhA conferences. The hard work paid off. “I love being a leader because it provides me with an opportunity to help develop all of the people around me,” Fox says. “It’s all about giving back.” A member of the track and field team at the College, Bryant is also giving back to the community. She was one of 14 student-athletes from across the country selected to attend the Red Cross/National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Collegiate Leadership Program in Washington, D.C., this past June. There, Bryant took part in professional leadership training. “The whole experience was life changing,” she says. Bryant decided to apply for the program after seeing the profound impact donating blood had on her younger brother, who has twice been diagnosed with childhood leukemia and survived thanks to blood transfusions. “I just feel like I need to give back,” she says.

The group set out to revive SNPhA, with Fox taking a lead role as secretary before taking over as president in fall 2012. She says she “fell in love” with SNPhA and its mission to help the underserved.

Now, she is taking the lessons she learned from the leadership program and applying them. Bryant met with Scott Caswell, chief executive officer of the Greater St. Louis Region Red Cross, in October and was asked to sit on the chapter’s board of directors. She is the only student pharmacist on the board. Bryant has also helped organize Kappa Psi’s campus blood drives.

In her time as president of the STLCOP chapter, Fox has helped double student membership. She also played a key role in the chapter winning a $2,500 grant from Walmart through the Prescription for Service Competition. The group used the money to create a mobile service initiative in April to provide tests for blood pressure and blood glucose and review medication for free across St. Louis.

Upon graduating, she wants to pursue a career in oncology pharmacy. “I have a personal connection with cancer, and I’ve seen how medicine helps people,” she says. “To me, pharmacy is giving back to so many people who gave to me.”

All the while, Fox was preparing to run for president of SNPhA. Kim Simmons, Pharm.D., MBA, assistant vice president of diversity and inclusion at the College, helped her plan a campaign leading up to the

STLCOP Recognized for Community Service Efforts From the moment students begin classes at the College until the time they receive their diplomas, they are constantly encouraged to engage patients, build relationships, and advance health care. Each year, students, faculty, and staff volunteer thousands of hours in activities that improve the community. For the first time,

the College was recognized for that effort by being named to the 2013 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll

Pieper, Pharm.D. “Through our work with area organizations, we’re demonstrating how pharmacists are an integral part of both the community and the health care team.” The College was commended for the community service performed over the past year. Recognized programs included hands-on education students provide each week at the Saint Louis Science Center, volunteer efforts to raise money to fight Type 1 diabetes, and initiatives to help patients with asthma. One area in which the College has served is advocating for the removal of unwanted and potentially dangerous medication from homes. On April 27, a record 16,311 pounds of medication from the St. Louis metropolitan area was discarded as part of the St. Louis Medication Disposal Initiative. The College partnered with the city of St. Louis and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to establish collection points in the city. There were 93 other disposal sites spread across the region. This year’s collection emphasized disposal of unused prescription pain medications. “Medication abuse often starts with teens taking medications from the homes of family and friends,” says Amy Tiemeier, Pharm.D., associate professor and director of professional affairs at the College. “Unfortunately, prescription pain medications may act as a gateway to illicit drugs like heroin and cocaine. Removing unwanted medications from your home helps protect not only your family but also the entire community.”

by the Corporation for National and Community Service. This is the highest honor a college or university can receive for its commitment to volunteering, service-learning, and civic engagement. “The Honor Roll recognition acknowledges the hard work that every member of the College does to improve the health and well-being of those living in the St. Louis region,” says College President John A.

The College’s efforts are making headway. The April collection brought in 30 percent more medication than in 2012. In the three years the Medication Disposal Initiative has

an appropriate age level. Students at the College have the opportunity to work at the Science Center as part of the introductory pharmacy practice experience class in the second year of the professional program.

Tiemeier also serves as the faculty coordinator for Pharmacy Phun, a collaboration between the College and the Saint Louis Science Center. Each week during the school year, students lead both child and adult Science Center visitors through hands-on learning projects. Some of the more popular activities include grinding up candy with a mortar and pestle and creating a cornstarch mixture, which resembles mucus.

As part of the same class, students perform asthma health screenings across the region through the St. Louis Children’s Hospital Healthy Kids Express program. “In partnering with community pharmacists and institutions like BJC Healthcare, we’re helping people breathe their best,” says Theresa Prosser, Pharm.D., professor of pharmacy practice. “Childhood asthma and hospitalization rates in St. Louis are the highest in the state. Annually St. Louis ranks as one of the worst places in the nation to live with asthma. Improving asthma control is a public health priority.”

“It’s fun teaching the children and seeing them make connections,” says sixth-year student and teaching assistant Zenia George. “We work hard to make sure the activities are engaging for the kids and their parents. There’s also the added benefit of students learning important lessons about communicating with patients of all ages.”

Prosser and fellow STLCOP faculty members Tricia Berry, Pharm.D., and Sue Bollmeier, Pharm.D., run the Asthma Friendly Pharmacies® (AFP) program.

George has been a teaching assistant for the Science Center lab, showing other students how to lead activities and tailor them to

It’s a fun afternoon for children with Type 1 diabetes and their family to enjoy a sugar-free environment with games and activities, as well as have meaningful interactions with students at the College.

The AFP leaders made a commitment that all graduates of the College are ready to teach patients how to use respiratory devices. All fifth-year students receive a placebo toolkit to practice device technique and counseling. Last year on rotations, sixth-year students reported providing more than 4,100 educational messages to patients and informing patients’ health care providers of more than 1,300 asthma medication problems.

“Students really put extra effort into making sure everyone has a great time,” says Rebecca Jones, director of academic support. “We’ve been hosting Boo Fest for seven years, and it is always so rewarding to see the smiles on the faces of the children, their parents, and the students.”

The College’s engagement with the community stretches beyond the classroom, pharmacy, and hospital. President Pieper was named the honorary chair for the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes for the Greater Missouri/ Southern Illinois chapter of JDRF for the second year in a row.

Whether volunteering at an event or checking a patient’s vital signs, students at the College are immersed in a culture of service reinforcing the impact pharmacists have on the community every day.

Obstetric Pharmacist Promotes Interprofessional Patient Care Her groundbreaking work in women’s health and collaborative, interdisciplinary approach to patient care have put Alicia Forinash at the forefront of the pharmacy profession. As both associate professor at St. Louis College of Pharmacy and ambulatory care clinical pharmacy specialist at the Maternal-Fetal Care Clinic at SSM St. Mary’s Health Center in St. Louis, Alicia Forinash, Pharm.D., is only one of a handful of pharmacists in the United States practicing obstetric pharmacy. A clinical researcher and practitioner, Forinash is making a significant impact on her patients’ and students’ futures.

“I think I was born to be a pharmacist,” Forinash shares. “My mom was a nurse, and she always knew what to give my siblings and me to help us feel better. I wanted to be like her; if I needed something or if my friends or family needed something, I wanted to know what to recommend and how to take care of them.” Her pharmaceutical knowledge, compassion, and care make Forinash so successful at helping others. Most of her days are spent at

PG 14


20 1 2-1 3 A NNUA L RE P ORT

Forinash educates her patients on medication management, safety, and side effects. “I really enjoy getting to know them and helping them learn about their disease states,” she says. “Women’s bodies change during pregnancy, so they may metabolize or eliminate some medicines faster, which brings up new challenges to consider. I like thinking about these challenges and how they relate to patient care.” Forinash treats her students with the same care and concern she shows her patients. She teaches women’s health courses at the College and is the program director for one of STLCOP’s PGY2 ambulatory care residencies. “I like working with the students and listening to what they have going on,” she says. “I help them try to get through whatever challenges they have, so they can see what their futures can be.” Her own future is as equally promising. Currently, she is working with physicians to implement collaborative practice agreements at the clinic. “The change to Missouri law regarding medication therapy allows me to more independently care for some patients,” she says. “Collaborative agreements allow me to make medication therapy changes without getting physician approval for every step of the process.” She continues, “I don’t want to skip having the physicians involved, but I can improve efficiency by updating them and having prescriptions ready for them.” In addition to her work at the clinic, Forinash wants to continue her research efforts. “I want to document more of what I’m doing within obstetrics to show what pharmacists can do for obstetric care,” she says.

the clinic, where she works closely with other health care professionals to manage and educate low- and high-risk maternity patients. “Our team is interdisciplinary,” Forinash explains. “We partner with several Saint Louis University physicians, and we have on staff a nurse practitioner, dietician, diabetic educators, genetic counselors, and sonographers.” Together, the staff collaborates to treat their patients, some of whom have traveled hours to receive life-saving, specialized care. “Offering collaborative patient care is important because everyone on the team brings a different component,” Forinash says. “We refer back and forth to each other throughout the day to make sure we’re covering the patient in every possible aspect.”

Whether in the clinic or the classroom, Alicia Forinash is a true pioneer in her profession.

Student Collaboration Earns National Recognition Students at St. Louis College of Pharmacy are setting an example of interprofessional collaboration. A team from STLCOP and Washington University were recognized with two awards from the National Consumers League. “Our group worked together across disciplines to spread the message of taking medication as prescribed to more than 40,000 potential patients in the St. Louis area,” says fifth-year student Sonalie Patel (pictured on the left).

The College and Washington University focused on delivering the message, “See it, Hear it, Write it, Understand it, Share it.” They utilized social media, a television appearance, and one-on-one interactions, earning them a special distinction award.

Patel led the team, which received a national Script Your Future Award from the National Consumers League. More than 80 colleges of pharmacy from across the country entered the competition, which was designed to increase medication adherence among patients with chronic conditions such as asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol.

“We were the only group to win two awards,” Patel says. Patel was joined on the organizing committee by sixth-year student Libby Herman (second from right) and fourth-year student Patrick Hyatt (second from left). Students studying medicine, physical therapy, and occupational therapy at Washington University rounded out the committee. PG 16


20 1 2-1 3 A NNUA L RE P ORT

During the month of February, students promoted the Script Your Future campaign with each discipline delivering a message that supported the group’s efforts. Student pharmacists stressed the importance of using pill boxes and medication lists. Medical students ensured patients understood their conditions and the importance of taking medications. Physical therapy students talked about appropriate exercises based on medications and conditions. Occupational therapy students educated the public on tips to remember to take medications such as using alarm clocks or smartphone reminders. Faculty members from the College and Washington University assisted the team in its efforts. Both Grice and Patel traveled to Washington, D.C., for the awards ceremony. There they met U.S. Surgeon General Regina Benjamin, M.D., MBA. “We’re teaching students the importance of interprofessional collaboration,” says group advisor Gloria Grice (right), Pharm.D., interim director of experiential programs at the College and associate professor of pharmacy practice. “All health care professionals, including pharmacists, physicians, and therapists, are working together more and more. Studies show that this model of care is in the best interest of patients.”

“One of her last acts as surgeon general was presenting our awards,” Patel says. “Afterward, we all went on a walk around the Capitol. I’ll never forget it.” One of Benjamin’s initiatives as surgeon general was promoting walking as a strategy to increase active living. Patel says she’s beginning to see a change in attitude among students at all of the neighboring health care institutions.

“By working so closely with the other professionals, we developed an appreciation for how they’re trying to help the patient,” Patel says. “I’ve studied how other professions handle patient care, but there’s no substitution for observing patient interaction firsthand. Seeing how other professionals discuss medication gives me a better understanding of the patient’s perspective and how I can be most effective on a patient-centered health care team.”

“Before working together on this project, it was rare to see a Washington University medical student on our campus even though we are located within a few blocks of each other,” Patel says. “Now, we’re visiting each other and forming both professional and personal bonds. It’s important for students at all of the schools in this area to take advantage of our proximity.”

Construction to Transform Campus for STLCOP Community Over the next two years, the College will be undergoing an exciting physical transformation to better meet the needs of our students, faculty, and staff. The plan is to maximize land use on the east end of campus, replace Whelpley Hall and the Cartwright Student Center with

two new buildings, create entry gateways to the campus, and increase campus green space.

PG 18


20 1 2-1 3 A NNUA L RE P ORT

research building and library in Phase 1. The new building will house the new School of Pharmacy and the four-year professional Doctor of Pharmacy program. The building will also include a 400-seat auditorium, several large classrooms, teaching labs, study space, and faculty offices. The library will move to the new building and more than triple in size. Finally, the new facility will greatly expand research labs and enable faculty and students to confront the most challenging questions in science, pharmacy, and health care. This building will be located east of and in place of the current Cartwright Student Center. The new facility will support the College’s vision of being globally prominent in health care education, interprofessional patientcentered care, and collaborative research. The striking design will provide STLCOP with a highly visible presence in this world-class biomedical research and patient care area. After Phase 1 is completed, Phase 2 is scheduled to include residential life, dining, a student center, recreation center, and gymnasium spaces. This new construction is critical in meeting the College’s programmatic needs. With the beginning of the seven-year program, student growth will increase to 1,650 students by 2016. This is an 80 percent increase in student population in two decades. This growth subsequently will require an 80 percent increase in space needs at the College.

The campus master planning process began in February 2012, and the master plan was adopted by the Board of Trustees in March 2013. Cannon Design was charged with the design of the project, and Paric was chosen as construction manager.

“These new buildings will help the College attract and retain the best and brightest students, expand teaching and research opportunities for faculty, and create a welcoming environment for everyone living and working on or visiting campus,” says College President John A. Pieper, Pharm.D.

Construction is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2014 and will include a new, six-story, 213,000-square-foot academic and

STLCOP HISTORY

On Nov. 11, 1864, in the Hall of St. Louis Medical College, a group of prominent St. Louis leaders decided that pharmacy education should progress from a series of disjointed lectures and assistantships into a formal educational program to meet the needs of a growing city that served as the gateway to the West. St. Louis College of Pharmacy was the fourth such college in America, and the first board consisted of the luminaries of the time: Henry Shaw, founder of the Missouri Botanical Garden; John O’Fallon, businessman and nephew of explorer William Clark; and railroad president Issac Sturgeon. Located in the Central West End medical community, the College has become one of the largest colleges of pharmacy in America, and one of the very few that is not a division of a larger university. The College’s independence enables us to educate the very best pharmacists to meet the increasing health care demands of our region and nation. In the best tradition of a small liberal arts college, our size also drives us to nurture well-rounded individuals who understand and become involved in the world beyond pharmacy.
