Challenge of the Deans


On Feb. 2, Dean Bauman and first-year student Brennan Ertmer competed in the annual Challenge of the Deans contest hosted by the UIC athletics department. More than 80 students, faculty, alumni and friends of the college supported Dean Bauman and Ertmer during the half-time free-throw contest. The College of Medicine took the title for the second year in a row, with Dean Bauman and Ertmer trailing by only a small margin. The UIC men's basketball team fared better, beating Youngstown State 86-72.

Fall Mentoring Dinner

 From L to R: Second-year students Meghan Hayes and Caitlyn Kaminski
speak with alumnus Mike Wiener, BS '75.

A record number of alumni turned out for the Fall Mentoring Dinner, volunteering their time to spend an evening with current students. Graduates ranging from 1952 to 2004 represented over 430 years of pharmacy experience. The Pharmacy Alumni Association sponsors up to two mentoring dinners per year providing students invaluable one-on-one time with alumni. Dinners are free for students and a minimal fee for alumni to attend. For more information on the mentoring dinner program and how to get involved, contact Deb Fox in the Pharmacy Alumni Office by phone at (312) 996-0160 or by e-mail at dfox4@uic.edu.


Turning Tragedy Into Legacy

In October the college lost an outstanding alumnus when Robin Ford Nash, BS '77, PharmD '99, passed away. Dr. Nash' family, while grieving her untimely death, sought to immortalize her dedication to the pharmacy profession-especially clinical pharmacy practice-and the compassion for which she was widely known for. The scholarship will fund partial tuition for a third-year student interested in pursuing a career in clinical pharmacy. Look for more information on the late Dr. Nash and the Robin Ford Nash Clinical Pharmacy Scholarship in the upcoming Spring 2008 issue of UIC Pharmacist
