School of Pharmacy Receives APhA Pinnacle Award

American Pharmacists Association Pinnacle Award

Duquesne University is one of three awardees selected by the American Pharmacists Association for its 2015 Pinnacle Awards, the university announced Monday.

The award program celebrates significant contributions to the medication use process through increasing patient adherence, reducing drug misadventures, promoting the use of national treatment guidelines, improving patient outcomes or enhancing communication among the members of the health care team. Duquesne's Mylan School of Pharmacy, together with the Duquesne University Pharmacy, the Center for Pharmacy Care, and the Academic Partners Program, were honored with the government agency nonprofit organization-association award.

"This prestigious, national honor underscores the positive impact that the Mylan School of Pharmacy has on the health and well-being of our community - especially the underserved," Duquesne University President Charles Dougherty said in a statement.

Duquesne and the Pinnacle awardees will be honored on Wednesday, Sept. 16, during a ceremony at APhA headquarters in Washington, D.C.
