5 A Message from the Dean As you will read in this annual report, 2013 was an exciting year of growth and change at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) School of Pharmacy (SOP) as we began filling our prescription for excellence. Perhaps the best news arrived just after the fall semester when our accreditation was extended in full through June 2020 by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education Board of Directors. This success was the culmination of many hours of hard work by our students, faculty and staff and was accomplished in addition to their day-to-day tasks. Our campuses in Amarillo, Abilene and Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) benefitted from millions of dollars of facility renovations. An organizational restructuring provided a new look for the program inside those facilities. In Abilene, Dr. Cynthia Raehl, a former Department of Pharmacy Practice co-chair, became the regional dean. Her predecessor, Debra Notturno-Strong, took over as the school s associate dean for professional affairs. Dr. Roland Patry, also a former Department of Pharmacy Practice co-chair, was named regional dean for our DFW campus. He succeeded Dr. Richard Leff, who is now our senior associate dean for clinical/translational research. Program restructuring also occurred at the department level. Dr. Thomas Abbruscato was named chair for the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Dr. Jon Weidanz was chosen as chair for the Department of Immunnotherapeutics and Biotechnology. Against the backdrop of these changes, many things also remained the same in Our pharmacy practice faculty continued to shape our program into a national leader in clinical pharmacy and experiential education and we continued to provide our students with more clinical training than any other pharmacy program in the country. In the laboratory, our sciences faculty also continued to achieve. Their dedication over the years has transformed us from a fledgling research program into a hub for world-class scientific investigation in areas like drug design and delivery, pharmaceutics, medicinal chemistry, pharmacokinetics, pathophysiology, immunology, cancer biology and clinical pharmacy. Our students are the obvious beneficiaries of all these renovations and restructuring, and they give our program its true value by using what they learn to help people who reside in the communities we serve. When it all comes together, the hard work and dedication of our faculty and staff helps prepare students for success in an evolving health care environment. It s the prescription for excellence that defines our program. Quentin R. Smith, Ph.D. DEAN, TTUHSC SCHOOL OF PHARMACY 3

7 Student Highlights As they develop their skills as pharmacists, our students also make important contributions to our campus communities. Although the effort these young men and women are required to put forth in the classroom to meet their academic responsibilities is considerable, they never hesitate to step outside our campus boundaries to help others. Whether individually or through student organization chapters, our students volunteer their time to help many charitable groups and annually provide the general public with more than 45 free health fairs combined in each of our campus communities. Following are some highlights from the community outreach efforts and other accomplishments featuring our students in 2013: Thanks to the joint efforts of students and doctors from the TTUHSC schools of pharmacy and medicine, more than 50 residents of Tulia received free health care screenings and consultations in February at the Tulia VFW Hall. The TTUHSC team included pharmacy faculty Dr. Shanna James and Dr. Mikala Conatser and more than 25 members of the Christian Pharmacist Fellowship International. School of Medicine faculty Dr. Brian Weis and Dr. Whit Walker led a group that included eight medical students and two resident physicians. This is the only interdisciplinary event that happens on a yearly basis at the Amarillo campus, James said. This event allows us to give back to the community and fosters relationships between medical and pharmacy students. In May, a team of TTUHSC pharmacy students, all members of TTUHSC s Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children (FIMRC) chapter, spent a week providing health care services and companionship to children in Huancayo, Peru. The students included DFW P3s Olga Shvarts and Michelle Sterrett; Lubbock P3s Michelle Castelli, Chris Figert and Holly Molloy; Amarillo P2s Cody Frausto and Cassandra Sheldon; and Abilene P2 Adriana Oviedo. Faculty members Dr. Jamie McCarrell and Dr. Cindy Raehl accompanied the students. FIMRC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving pediatric and maternal health in the local community and throughout the developing world by implementing innovative and self-sustainable health improvement programs. The main purpose of the mission was to provide health care and health education to the underprivileged children in Peru, McCarrell said. We were also able to spend a significant amount of time with a group of Peruvian orphans that was not necessarily health care focused. This allowed our volunteers and these children to engage in natural relationship-building activities such as group games, personal conversations and the basic human contact that the children crave so much. Frausto said the group was introduced to the country s health care system by visiting local 5

8 hospitals, accompanying doctors as they made their rounds, observing surgeries and births and interacting with patients. They also attended a presentation about the Peruvian health care system given by local medical school students. The West Texas Pharmacy Association (WTPA) awarded 22 scholarships to School of Pharmacy students from all four campuses. P1 recipients included Teryn Bibb and Erica Braden from Abilene and Gina Graham, Cortney McGinnis and Barbara Reyes from Amarillo. P2 class recipients included Anh Hoang Huynh from Abilene and Nathan Harris from Amarillo. P3 honorees included Carissa Chadwick from Abilene; Jessie Rea and Megan Sneller from Amarillo; Myka McMeans from DFW; and Justin Miranda and Taryn Satterwhite from Lubbock. WTPA scholarships were also awarded to P4s Ryan George, Long Lam, Matthew Pennington, Yufei Wang and Heather Jo Williams from Abilene and Matthew Ries, Crystal Rodriguez, Leah Schumpert and Heather Jo White from Lubbock. DFW P4 Kevin Aloysius was accepted into the Institute for Healthcare Improvement Student Quality Leadership Academy, sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The Academy met in June in Cambridge, Massachusetts for a two-day program designed to build leadership competencies shared by all health professions. Participants were taught specific skills related to leading change, managing conflict, communicating effectively and other leadership challenges. Amarillo P2 Telyssa Anderson earned first place at the annual Texas Pharmacy Association (TPA) Patient Counseling Competition. DFW P3 Urvi Desai finished in second place and Amarillo P2 Nidhu Baby took third place. All three students earned the right to represent the school at the state competition in July at the TPA Rxperts Conference in Frisco, Texas. Abilene P2s Ashley Walker and Kally Lafitte won the 2013 Target Business Plan Scholarship Competition, which is a part of the Target Campus Grant Program. Each received a $1,000 scholarship for their winning effort. Amarillo P1 Vi Bui already knew she was interested in a hospital pharmacy career and the interprofessional collaborations that have become integral to that career path. So when she was asked to take part in the TTUHSC regional CLARION Interprofessional Case Competition, Bui jumped at the chance. By winning the regional competition, Bui and her teammates qualified for and competed at the national competition in Minneapolis. CLARION, a University of Minnesota (UM) student organization dedicated to improving health care via interprofessional collaboration, began hosting a student case competition for UM health professional students in In 2005, the competition was expanded to the national level. Teams representing at least two health care disciplines are assigned a case and must develop a root cause analysis and then present its evaluation to a panel of interprofessional judges who assess the analysis using real world standards of practice. This provided me a chance to meet and work with fellow students from different schools at TTUHSC, an experience that I had not been exposed to as a first-year pharmacy student, Bui said. 6

9 The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) Patient Counseling Competition began with 39 students from all four School of Pharmacy campuses. When the final results were tallied, Abilene P4 Tiffany Johnson stood above the field and earned a March trip to the APhA national competition. At the national level, Johnson squared off against 122 other students who had also won competitions at their pharmacy schools. She said the experience she gained at the local competition aided her preparation for the national contest. Thanks to the Texas Tech Student Society of Health-System Pharmacists (Double T), the Texas Society of Health-System Pharmacists (TSHP) Annual Seminar in Austin had a distinct TTUHSC feel. Pharmacy students from all four campuses attended the conference and made a strong showing for Double T and the school. In the 2013 TSHP Clinical Skills Competition, Amarillo P2 teammates Jisha Jacob and Heidi Michaels outpaced all other teams from across the state and took first place in the P1/P2 category. Other award winners included DFW P4s Ryan Collins and Anastasia Diamantopoulos. Collins received the 2013 Glenda Lawson McRee Pharmacy Student Award for his commitment to the profession through service, practice, education or research. Diamantopoulos received a 2013 Lourdes M. Cuellar Circle of Excellence Award for service and leadership. Four students also received $1,000 scholarships: Amarillo P2 Telyssa Anderson (Gene Lake Scholarship), DFW P2 Jordan Burdine (Michael Patry/TTUHSC-SOP/El Paso Area Health- System Pharmacists Memorial Scholarship), DFW P4 Kevin Aloysius (El Paso Area Health-System Pharmacists Scholarship) and DFW P4 Kinjal Patel (Grace Dyan Coggin Metroplex Society of Health-System Pharmacists Memorial Scholarship). Anderson, Burdine and Abilene P2 Saeed Alghazari were inducted into the TSHP Student Section Executive Committee and represented the Double T chapter on the state committee. In addition, the entire chapter received the TSHP Medication Safety Product Innovation Award. Texas Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists student chapters from throughout the state are challenged annually to donate as many stuffed animals as possible for children receiving care through the Dell Children s Hospital in Austin. The Texas Tech Student Society of Health-System Pharmacists earned first place in 2013 with more than 340 stuffed animals donated. Class of 2013 graduate Chiamaka Ike received one of only 16 prestigious Go Red for Women Scholarships that were awarded nationwide in The scholarships supports future health care providers who have shown they will truly understand the cultural differences and traditions that impact lifestyle and attitudes toward heart health. DFW rising P3 Jordan Burdine was appointed to the American Health Systems Pharmacists Commission on Affiliate Relations Committee. Burdine and DFW Associate Professor Dr. Steven Pass were the only Texans chosen to serve on the committee. 7

10 The Texas Pharmacy Foundation (TPF) awarded scholarships to three TTUHSC pharmacy students in Amarillo P4 Kaytlin Huseman was named the 2013 TTUHSC recipient of a TPF General Scholarship; DFW P4 Lilian May received the Robert Clayton Scholarship; and DFW P4 Myka McMeans was awarded the Academy of Clinical Pharmacists Scholarship. Amarillo P3 Megan Sneller received the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) Foundation Presidential Scholarship. Applicants were judged based upon leadership qualities and academic achievement. The award included scholarship funding, paid registration for the NCPA annual convention and a stipend for travel and lodging expenses to attend the convention. Lubbock P3 Alaric Nielson was appointed by Kappa Psi s Grand Regent to the organization s national legislative committee. The committee is comprised of the Grand Counselor (national president), a single graduate member and a single collegiate member. DFW P3 Rachel Seka was awarded the Dallas Area Pharmacy Association Scholarship. The scholarship criteria include academic achievement, permanent residence in the DFW area, involvement in pharmacy school and community activities and student membership in the Texas Pharmacy Association. Twenty-one teams eager to showcase their patient care knowledge entered the Texas Tech Student Society of Health-System Pharmacists 2013 Clinical Skills contest. DFW P3s Jordan Light and Olga Shvarts earned top honors and advanced to the American Society of Health- System Pharmacists (ASHP) national clinical skills competition at ASHP s Midyear Clinical Meeting in Orlando, Florida. DFW P3 Urvi Desai was selected to serve on the publications committee for the American College of Clinical Pharmacy (ACCP).

14 Residency Program Highlights The TTUHSC Pharmacy Residency Programs provide advanced training that develops practitioners who exhibit excellence in patient care, practice management, education, research and scholarship. Since 1997, more than 250 residents have successfully completed training their training program and 25 residents were enrolled in the program during the academic year. Under the direction of Associate Professor Dr. Steven Pass, the residency program s dedicated pharmacy practice faculty have created one of the nation s most respected post-graduate residency programs by offering unique training opportunities through distinct pharmacy practice and specialty programs located at each of the four TTUHSC pharmacy school campuses. Residents also participate in a variety of other learning opportunities that have evolved each year to encourage residents to pursue academic or academic-affiliated positions upon graduation. Resident Rounds requires residents to present a formal 45-minute seminar based on their annual research project. The Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist (BCPS) Preparatory Discussion Series prepares the residents to sit for any of the six exams sponsored by the Board of Pharmacy Specialties. To date, more than 40 resident alumni have pursued and received BCPS certification. The longitudinal Clinician-Educator Teaching Certificate program is a formal training program that provides the residents an additional opportunity to gain knowledge and to demonstrate effectiveness in the areas of teaching and scholarship. The Residency Workshop takes place each summer on the Dallas/Fort Worth campus and provides formal education and discussions about problem-based learning, preceptor training and research/irb considerations. In June, residents from each School of Pharmacy campus traveled to Amarillo for the school s 13th Annual Research Days. The event included a podium and poster presentation competition that evaluated entries according to the researcher s introduction, research methods, results, conclusions, impact and verbal presentation. Caitlin Gibson, Minh Hong, Christyn Mullen, Brian Terrell and Kayley Will took top honors in the Residents category. 12

16 Graduate Program Highlights The mission of the Graduate Program in Pharmaceutical Sciences (GPPS) is to educate and prepare students to become quality scientists for career opportunities in the pharmaceutical industry and academia. The research undertaken by these faculty-mentored graduate students continues to support and energize the SOP s scientific endeavors. Students enrolled in the program earn masters and doctoral degrees in integrated biomedical/pharmaceutical sciences and many GPPS graduates presently fill important positions with academia, academic labs, government agencies and private companies within the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. As part of the TTUHSC Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBS), GPPS students have been consistently recognized for their achievements in the classroom and the laboratory. Six of the last nine Ph.D. graduates to earn the GSBS Outstanding Student Award have come from the GPPS. In addition, two GPPS students have been earned the GSBS Dean s Recognition Award since In 2013, GPPS enrollment included 38 Ph.D. students and accounted for more than one-third of total GSBS enrollment. Six of these students earned their doctoral degree in GPPS student highlights for 2013 included: The Controlled Release Society (CRS) has selected School of Pharmacy graduate student Md. Shahriarul (Abir) Absar to receive the 2013 CRS Outstanding Pharmaceutical Best Paper Award sponsored by CRS and PharmaCircle. The CRS Outstanding Pharma Award Committee made the selection based on Absar s paper titled, Camouflaged and Thrombin-triggered Delivery of Tissue Plasminogen Activator for Targeted Thrombolysis. Absar received a plaque and $1,500 in July at the 2013 CRS Annual Meeting & Exposition in Honolulu. Absar, a Ph.D. candidate in Dr. Fakhrul Ahsan s lab, was also awarded a Predoctoral Fellowship from the American Heart Association. His grant titled, Stealth delivery system for targeted and triggered release of tissue plasminogen activators, received a score of 1.07 and a 1-percentile ranking. As a pre-doctoral fellow, Absar will receive an annual $25,000 stipend for the next two years.

18 Pharm.D. - M.B.A. Program The idea of a Pharm.D.-M.B.A. program at TTUHSC was born in early 2006 with discussions between several faculty at the Texas Tech University (TTU) Rawls College of Business and the SOP. The discussions focused on the need to develop and train the future leaders of the profession. The Health Organization Management concentration within the M.B.A. program matched what the pharmacy faculty believed were the necessary areas of focus to develop strong leaders in health care organizations. The curriculum emerged after several rounds of negotiation between the programs keeping in mind the accreditation requirements of business and pharmacy. The curricular design model was determined after reviewing other Pharm.D.-M.B.A. programs matched with the teaching schedules and course prerequisites. Rather than adopting the various models currently in use throughout the U.S., the faculty chose to concentrate the M.B.A. course offerings in the summers so that the M.B.A. portion could be completed by the end of a student s third (P3) year and before students would enter the yearlong advanced pharmacy practice experiential rotations in their fourth (P4) year. Since the program was structured to be a dual degree, it was essential that all of the approved content for both degree plans be met. In 2007, the Pharm.D.-M.B.A. program established by the SOP and the TTU Rawls College of Business began as the 31st such combined degree offering in the country and the only one between Georgia and Arizona at the time. The initial plan was to create several tracks for Pharm.D. students to obtain the M.B.A.. The first track offered to rising P2 and P3 pharmacy students the opportunity to take the M.B.A. coursework. The goal was to phase out the P3 program and only retain the rising P2 program. This track required the development of separate curricula to ensure all requirements for both the Pharm.D. and M.B.A. were met. The first of these students began classes in the summer The second track was viewed as the most desired by the faculty at both colleges and offered the program to P0-P1 students those who were accepted into pharmacy school but were not currently enrolled in pharmacy courses. Under this track, the P0 students would begin M.B.A. coursework in the summer prior to their enrollment in the pharmacy school. The 2010 summer class was the first to enter the program under this track. The third track was viewed as a future development and would involve the creation of a post-pharm.d. graduate program that might, if the student chose, involve a concurrent two-year management residency program. A start date for this track has not been identified. The program continued to mature in 2013 when three SOP students completed the Pharm.D. program. The group included Holly Arimo, Rebecca Roberts and Glenda Hart. 16

25 Research Highlights TTUHSC-SOP continues to promote and facilitate clinical and basic science research for its faculty. Senior Associate Dean for Sciences Dr. Sanjay Srivistava and his staff oversee all SOP resources related to research and to disseminating results to the professional community. In June, Dr. Richard Leff accepted the roles of senior associate dean for clinical research for the school and division chief of clinical/translational research in the Department of Pharmacy Practice. He will also serve as the School of Pharmacy representative on the TTUHSC Clinical Research Institute. With these new appointments, Dr. Leff has assumed the lead role in helping to build clinical research and infrastructure within the school for the benefit of all pharmacy practice faculty who have scholarship or research needs. Other research highlights during 2013 include: The acquisition of a Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) machine, which provides School of Pharmacy researchers access to magnetic resonance imaging technology outside of a hospital setting. It is the first NMR spectrometer acquired by TTUHSC and it extend the school s push to enhance its medicinal chemistry programs and research. Several SOP laboratories, including that of Dr. Paul Trippier, are conducting research to develop novel small molecule drug compounds that may be used to fight many types of diseases or to change the delivery method of current drugs. Trippier said the NMR is essential for this research because it is a state-of-the-art piece of equipment that allows investigators to determine the precise molecular structure of a compound sample atom by atom. They can then unequivocally confirm the structure of a synthesized compound and determine if the planned reaction to make a desired compound has been successful. The NMR spectrometer is an absolutely essential tool for research in medicinal chemistry, Trippier said. This acquisition further enhances our research capacity in several areas and elevates the school up to the level of the nation s best pharmacy schools who also posses this equipment. Trippier s laboratory uses the machine most frequently in a search for new drugs to combat pediatric cancers and neurodegenerative diseases. However, the spectrometry has also been used by other faculty to develop chemical probes for detecting potential drug targets in the brain, to create new prodrugs to enhance delivery and bioavailability of existing drugs and to analyze metabolites of cancer drugs. The acquisition of the NMR spectrometer, together with the LC-MS/MS and UPLC-MS/MS machines already at the SOP, provides faculty researchers with a powerful suite of analytical instruments. It also enhances the teaching and research aspects of the school s graduate program. The NMR was obtained through TTUHSC funds designated for enhancing medical chemistry research. Though the machine is currently being used exclusively by pharmacy school researchers, it is available to any TTUHSC researcher or student and should facilitate collaborative efforts between TTUHSC schools. 23

26 According to information released in 2013 by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, TTUHSC-SOP ranks among the top pharmaceutical research programs in the country. The rankings, based upon 2012 research funding totals, shows TTUHSC pharmacy researchers ranked 24th nationally among accredited U.S. pharmacy schools in combined research grant funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and all other federal and non-federal funding sources. In achieving its overall standing, the pharmacy school ranked 35th in total NIH funding, seventh in funding from all other federal sources and ninth in non-federal funding. Dr. Margaret L. Kripke, chief scientific officer for the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas, joined faculty researchers, graduate students and residents in Amarillo for the School of Pharmacy s 12th Annual Research Days. Research Days is an interdisciplinary forum showcasing research activities at the school during the past year. It provides an opportunity for faculty, postdoctoral fellows and students to exchange research ideas and interests and to discuss interdisciplinary collaborations between the school s departments and campuses. Several other distinguished speakers followed Kripke to the Research Days podium. The group included Dr. Michael Karin, distinguished professor of pharmacology and pathology at the University of California-San Diego School of Medicine; Dr. Thomas Jacobs, associate chancellor for federal relations for the University of Texas system; and Dr. Mansoor A. Khan, director of product quality research at the Food and Drug Administration s Center for Drug Evaluation Research. The Journal of National Cancer Institute (13.76 impact factor) published a research paper by Drs. Jon Weidanz and Maciej Markiewski from the Department of Immunotherapeutics and Biotechnology in Abilene. The article, titled, Antitumor Activity of a Monoclonal Antibody Targeting Major Histocompatiility Complex Class I-Her2 Peptide Complexes, was published electronically on Jan. 8. It reports on their research on a new T-cell receptor-mimicking antibody. The Journal of National Cancer Institute also published an editorial titled, HER2-Directed T-cell Receptor- Mimicking Antibody: A Me Too or an Example of Novel Antitumor Aggressive Mimickry? that highlights the work. An article by researchers Dr. Ming-Hai Wang and Dr. Ruiwen Zhang from Amarillo was published in the July edition of the prestigious journal, Nature Reviews Cancer. The work was titled, MSP-RON signalling: pathogenesis and therapeutic potential. SOP researcher Dr. Sanjay Srivastava from the Amarillo campus is the editor of three books published in 2013: Pancreatic Cancer-Molecular Mechanism and Targets and Pancreatic Cancer- Clinical Management, published by Intech; and Role of Capsaicin in Oxidative Stress and Cancer, published by Springer. 24

29 2013 Preceptors and Preceptor Sites The Office of Experiential Programs places TTUHSC pharmacy students in actual practice settings in or near each of the SOP s campus sites in Amarillo, Abilene, Lubbock and Dallas/Fort Worth. The technology-driven program provides these future practitioners with opportunities to interact with real patients and other healthcare professionals and has earned high marks from both students and preceptors. Dr. Eric MacLaughlin and Dr. Craig Cox oversee the office and its personnel from all four SOP campuses. First, second, and third-year SOP students (P1s, P2s and P3s) participate in Introduction to Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPE) where they work in groups, conduct various health fairs and begin their four (4) six-week rotation experiences. Fourth-year students (P4s) transition from IPPE to APPE (Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences) by participating in six (6) six-week rotations in community and retail pharmacies, hospitals, inpatient and outpatient clinics and other health care facilities. Each year, the TTUHSC-SOP honors one faculty member and one adjunct faculty member from each campus community with a Preceptor of the Year Award. The Office of Experiential Programs reviews preceptor evaluations submitted by students and then determines the top five faculty preceptors and top five adjunct preceptors from each campus. The third- and fourth-year students then vote for one faculty and adjunct faculty finalist from their respective campus. Faculty Preceptor of the Year Award honorees for 2013 included Dr. Krystal Haase (Amarillo), Dr. Young Lee (Abilene), Dr. Lisa Chastain (DFW) and Dr. Craig Cox (Lubbock). The 2013 Adjunct Faculty Preceptors of the Year included Joshua Moore, Pharm.D., Moore than Medicine Pharmacy, Tulia, Texas (Amarillo); Jon Pate, Pharm.D., Walmart Pharmacy (Abilene); Rashona Thomas, Pharm.D., VA Community Living Center, (DFW); and Allen Cunningham, Pharm.D., Covenant Health System (Lubbock). 27

35 Professional Development/Alumni Highlights The Office of Professional Affairs (OPA) nurtures the development of future pharmacy leaders by encouraging and enhancing the professionalism of SOP doctoral candidates. In June, Debra Notturno-Strong assumed the role of associate dean for professional affairs. She and her staff take a proactive approach in establishing and administering programs designed to support the career development and placement of students, encourage participation in student organizations and activities, promote community service and outreach programs and cultivate relationships with SOP alumni. OPA staff routinely schedule monthly career development seminars where students can learn about the latest topics and employment trends in the pharmacy profession. Through its web page, the office keeps students apprised of scholarship and other financial aid opportunities and addresses many of the academic issues students face in their day-to-day lives. To enhance job placement opportunities for our graduates, OPA staff host the school s annual career fair, which provides students with the opportunity to meet face-to-face with recruiters and representatives from various retail pharmacies, national drugstore chains, supermarkets, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals and health care facilities pharmacies located throughout Texas and surrounding states. These one-on-one interviews allow students to explore internship opportunities, collect information regarding residency programs and investigate opportunities in community pharmacy. Because alumni are an important part of our program, the OPA and SOP Development Director Carrie Croley help the school manage alumni relations by working jointly with the Alumni Association Board of Directors and the Office of Development to tailor programs and projects that address the needs of our former students. Alumni participate in focus groups that assist the SOP with strategic planning and accreditation reports, develop mentoring opportunities for students, assist with student career development seminars and serve as student preceptors. SOP students naturally look to the program s alumni for role models and motivators, and OPA staff continually work to keep these important avenues open for present and past students. The OPA also annually recognizes alumni who whose accomplishments and careers have brought significant credit to the School of Pharmacy with its annual Distinguished Alumni Awards. In 2013, the SOP recognized alumnus Dr. Brandon Sucher and former resident Dr. Brian Irons as Distinguished Alumni. Sucher is an associate professor of pharmacy practice at Regis University School of Pharmacy in Denver. He received his Pharm.D. in 2001 as a member of the pharmacy school s second graduating class and completed a primary care 33

36 specialty pharmacy residency at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. He is a board certified ambulatory care pharmacist, a certified diabetes educator and a certified asthma educator. Prior to his arrival at Regis, Sucher was an associate professor at the Palm Beach Atlantic University (PBAU) Gregory School of Pharmacy. He is a founding faculty member at both pharmacy schools and his work with pharmacy practice residents at the West Palm Beach Veterans Affairs Medical Center earned him PBAU s Pharmacy Preceptor of Distinction in 2007 and Reflecting on these experiences has helped me appreciate the value of my pharmacy education at TTUHSC, Sucher said. I was blessed with the quality of education and individualized attention from faculty members and staff that one would expect from a private university at the cost of state tuition. Sucher has been extremely involved in the Phi Delta Chi Professional Pharmacy Fraternity and served a term as its national president. Irons has been a resident and faculty member with the SOP since He is currently an associate professor of pharmacy practice at the SOP campus in Lubbock and heads the school s Ambulatory Care Division. He is also a past director of the school s two-year ambulatory care residency in Lubbock and a preceptor for the one- and two-year residents on that campus. Irons received his bachelor s and Pharm.D. degrees from the University of Wisconsin- Madison. He completed a pharmacy practice residency at United Hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota, and an ambulatory/managed care residency at TTUHSC-SOP. I think my time working with the pharmacy school s Managed Health Care Pharmacy Services faculty provided me with opportunities many residents at the time were not afforded, Irons said. This group Butch Habeger, Ranee Basse, Sherida Nelson, to name a few gave me significant independence and allowed me to grow personally and professionally. The ability to work in such a way via collaborative drug therapy management and to help hone my skills as an ambulatory care clinical pharmacist and teacher provided me with opportunities I will always feel very lucky to have had. Those experiences helped me launch my academic career and I will always be grateful to the faculty for that. Irons is certified by the Board of Pharmacy Specialties in ambulatory care and pharmacotherapy and is also board certified in advanced diabetes management. In 2011, he was named fellow by the American College of Clinical Pharmacy for sustained excellence in the discipline of clinical pharmacy. 34

37 Facilities Highlights Three SOP campuses benefitted in a multitude of ways from more than $4 million in improvements made during On the Amarillo campus, TTUHSC has dedicated approximately $1.1 million to exterior refurbishments of the main SOP building and $810,000 to improve the medicinal chemistry laboratory. The Amarillo campus also begin using its new sterile laboratory. The main room contains 26 individual workstations with hoods where students are taught to perform proper sterile procedures. The SOP paid $520,000 to construct the 2,000-square-foot laboratory, which is located at the site of a former classroom on the second floor of the main SOP building. The classroom was moved to the Pharmacy Academic Center when it opened in In addition, $610,000 was used to equip a new sterile products laboratory for P2 students on the Abilene campus. Dr. Mikala Conatser, an assistant professor of pharmacy practice at the Amarillo campus, said the new sterile laboratory facilities will teach second-year pharmacy students how to perform sterile compounding, a process that produces sterile medications that will be introduced into a patient intravenously or through similar methods. Students are taught to produce sterile medications that pass an air particle count, a bacterial growth test and additional requirements specified by United States Pharmacopeia 797. The sterile laboratory facilities allow TTUHSC-SOP to offer its students a specialized type of training that no other pharmacy school in Texas can provide. The Abilene campus also made $80,000 of improvements to its water system. In addition, the Development Corporation of Abilene provided $908,520 to expand the Abilene Campus vivarium. In total, the expansion will provide almost 5,000 square feet of state-of-the-art vivarium space for TTUHSC researchers, enhancing the competitiveness of student training, research and drug development at the Abilene campus, Department of Immunotherapeutics and Biotechnology chair Jon Weidanz, Ph.D., said. At the SOP s DFW-Southwest campus, $580,000 was invested into renovations that included new and refurbished research laboratory spaces, additional office space and an expanded classroom. 35

39 Texas Panhandle Poison Center The Texas Panhandle Poison Center (TPPC), hosted by TTUHSC and the SOP, is one of six regional poison centers established in 1993 by the Texas Legislature to provide emergency treatment information for poisonings or toxic exposures for Texas residents. Its service area includes Texas Public Health Regions 1 and 2, a territory that consists of the Texas Panhandle, the South Plains region and a portion of central Texas. Though the area is predominately rural, it also includes the cities of Amarillo, Lubbock, Abilene and Wichita Falls. When added together, TPPC covers 71 counties, a geographical area equivalent to roughly 25 percent of the state and more than 1.3 million Texans. Dr. Jeanie Jaramillo, an assistant professor for the SOP s Department of Pharmacy Practice, serves as TPPC managing director. Dr. Shu Shum, an associate professor from the TTUHSC School of Medicine, is TPPC s medical director. In addition, TPPC Educator Ronica Farrar and the TPPC staff provide high-impact community educational programs and outreach efforts that include educational presentations to school children, civic groups and various healthcare providers throughout the region. TPPC also distributes informational newsletters to pharmacies, daycare centers and public health representatives using an effective and economical electronic newsletter service and an actively growing opt-in contact list. The electronic newsletter links readers to the Texas Poison Center Network website (www.poisoncontrol.org) where they can stay up-to-date with hot topics, place an order for educational and promotional items or visit the Kids Corner. TPPC also distributes brochures, magnets and various other educational materials throughout its coverage area. TPPC also orchestrates Medication Cleanout, a community drug take-back program that started in The program encourages residents to remove from their medicine cabinets any unused, expired or no-longer needed medications and take them to a designated location for proper disposal. The program helps reduce the risks of accidental poisonings, drug abuse and misuse and environmental contamination. By the end of 2013, TPPC had conducted 29 Medication Cleanout events in Amarillo, Abilene, Lubbock and several other smaller communities in the TPPC service area using a drive-through and drop-off format. The combined events have collected 15,140 pounds of unused medications for proper disposal. Thanks to the success of the Medication Cleanout program, TPPC personnel have been instrumental in providing technical assistance and helping other groups navigate the myriad laws, rules, regulations and other risks associated with starting and organizing community take-back programs throughout Texas and across the nation. 37

40 Texas Pharmacy Museum With a collection of more than 12,000 items, the Texas Pharmacy Museum (TPM) is dedicated to preserving and documenting the history of pharmacy. The museum s assemblage includes pharmacy art and books, containers, laboratory glassware, commercial remedies and products and other tools of the pharmacy trade. It is the largest collection of pharmacy related items in Texas and one of the largest in the country. The 3,000-square-foot museum is located in the basement of the main TTUHSC SOP building in Amarillo. Curator Susan Denney currently oversees the pieces of drugstore history that have found their way to the Texas Panhandle thanks to contributions from more than 150 donors from 45 Texas communities and eight other states. In October, Denney led a contingent of SOP students to the Fannin History Festival in Amarillo, an event TPM has participated in every year since The annual festival, held at Fannin Middle School, coincides with American Pharmacists Month and provides a wonderful opportunity for the SOP and TPM to inform school-age children, their families and the general public about present and past aspects of the pharmacy profession. The 2013 TPM exhibit included a hand-operated pill rolling machine and a mortar and pestle that was used to grind candy tablets and provide a sugar coating for the pills. After watching TTUHSC pharmacy students demonstrate the different processes, visitors to the exhibit were allowed to use the devices themselves. The pharmacy students also fielded questions about pharmacy school and the profession in general. 38
