MU School of Pharmacy receives donation
The Marshall University School of Pharmacy were gifted equipment from Cabell Huntington Hospital, Jan. 24.
Dr. Robert Stanton, assistant dean in the office of Experiential Education at the School of Pharmacy, said the school received two laminar flow hoods, which provide sterile work areas for students who make sterile products, mainly during the compounding process.
We are always extremely grateful when Cabell Huntington Hospital makes a donation to the School of Pharmacy, Stanton said. We have always had a great partnership with Cabell Huntington Hospital and we hope it continues.
Jennifer Kibler, pharmacy director for Cabell Huntington Hospital said, Cabell Huntington Hospitals pharmacy recently underwent a renovation and we were able to donate the two laminar flow hoods to Marshalls School of Pharmacy.
With the donation of the floor hoods, pharmacy students will now have access to equipment that will help them learn.
The laminar flow hoods that Cabell Huntington Hospital donated to us will allow our students to better simulate real world work environments and help our students learn a lot better, Stanton said. Our students will become better prepared pharmacists in IV prep with these flow hoods.
Kibler said Cabell Huntington Hospital has a strong relationship with the School of Pharmacy.
Cabell Huntington Hospital works very well with us in many ways, Stanton said. Aside from donating equipment, they often take students on their rotations and even help us assess candidates for future classes in the School of Pharmacy, Stanton said. We are really thankful for everything Cabell Huntington Hospital does for the School of Pharmacy.
The School of Pharmacy conducts research and provides services directed toward the goal of improving the health and well being of West Virginians, veterans and residents of the tri-state region and nation.
Marshalls School of Pharmacy will be graduating their very first class in 2016 and is actively looking for more equipment for its students.
Marshall Universities School of Pharmacy is located on the campus of the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in the Spring Valley area of Huntington.
