The James J. O'Mara Awards
The James J. O’Mara Awards were created to honour the memory of James O’Mara, a prominent Newfoundland pharmacist who tirelessly worked as an advocate for a university based School of Pharmacy. He served as the President of the NPhA from 1970-72 and was Secretary/Registrar of what is now the Newfoundland and Labrador Pharmacy Board from 1981-1990. An award will be given to one student in each year of the Pharmacy program. The students will be selected based on top performance in the Pharmacy Skills courses for the year of study, as recommended by the course coordinators. Each award is valued at a portion of the income from the endowment. The awards are conferred by the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards on the recommendation of the Dean of the School of Pharmacy.
