Representatives from Giant Eagle at the dedication included John DeJames, clinical programs and special projects; Brett Merrill, senior vice president for health and wellness; Anthony Molleca, vice president for pharmacy operations; and Dr. A.J. Greco, Duquesne University administrative pharmacist with Giant Eagle Pharmacy.

"I am very pleased with the commitment that Giant Eagle has made to the School to foster a learning environment that will prepare students for the practice of pharmacy as their role is changing within the healthcare arena," said Bricker. "Their support over many years is outstanding and is much appreciated."

The Giant Eagle Center for Pharmacy Practice provides an environment that integrates, reinforces and enhances learning by showing pharmacy students the relationship between class lectures and pharmacy practice.
