What do you see as the future of pharmacy? Do you have the necessary skills to lead practice change in your organization? Marialice S. Bennett, RPh, FAPhA, has some ideas about the traits shared by leaders tasked with motivating managers and driving an idea forward into action.

The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy is pleased to announce that Lara Sucheston-Campbell, PhD, and Moray Campbell, PhD, have joined the College of Pharmacy faculty. Both come from the Department of Cancer Prevention and Population Sciences at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo NY.

Lara Sucheston-Campbell

More than 29 million Americans live with diabetes. For some it can be a struggle to afford the many medications and devices necessary to keep the disease under control. That has led to a lucrative market where prescriptions are bought and resold.

On a Friday morning, the Marion Franklin Intergenerational Center holds a health fair for local residents. Registered nurse Barbara Parker is there to screen for diabetes.  Using a Lancet, a small needle, she pricks the skin on the tip of the finger, then slips a thin glucose test strip into the handheld meter.
