The best medicine

10 Feb

I recently wrote a story for the Montanan about UM’s School of Pharmacy, which aims to get students into the field long before they graduate. The results are a quality education, but also a healthier public–during one routine screening in Helena, a team of pharmacy students saved a Montana legislator’s life. You can read the full story here.

    Such a good article…you must have made the School of Pharmacy proud. How can you be so young and have so many good stories under your belt. Hope to see you Thursday. Love from no melt on the river bottom household.
