Several faculty members and students from the School of Pharmacy received awards during the Pharmacists' Association of Newfoundland and Labrador (PANL) 2011 Annual Conference and Awards ceremony last month.
Jamie Grandy, a student in the class of 2012, received the PANL Student Spirit Award, and Christopher Grant, also from the class of 2012, received the Ralph J. Harris Future of Pharmacy Award.
Dr. Scott Edwards, a faculty member who specializes in clinical oncology pharmacy, received the Nycomed Magnum Opus Award. The award recognizes pharmacists who have completed specialty education or training and who, as a result, have successfully expanded their professional practice.
The school's dean, Dr. Linda Hensman, received two awards. She received the Alfred G. Dawe Distinguished Service Award from the Newfoundland and Labrador branch of the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists during their recent annual meeting.
Dr. Hensman also received the Bowl of Hygeia Award that recognizes outstanding community service through pharmacy. This is the most prestigious pharmacy award in North America, with only one being presented each year in each province and state.
