Arab American pharmacists support Wayne State fellowship in health outcomes

April 17, 2013

Wayne State University has received a $225,000 commitment from the Arab American Pharmacists Association to support a new fellowship in the Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. The WSU-AAPA fellowship will provide a pathway to developing research expertise in community health outcomes and prepare the fellow for a future career in higher education. Additionally, the research will assist in serving the health needs of the Arab American community in southeast Michigan and advancing the delivery of care from pharmacists to the community. The fellowship will operate under the direction of Linda Jaber, professor of Pharmacy Practice. "The Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences is grateful to the Arab American Pharmacists Association for its generosity," said Dean Lloyd Young. "Research fellowships are critical to preparing the next generation of practitioners, academic leaders and researchers, and this particular fellowship will enable us to learn more about the health needs in our community and to support those needs through training for advanced pharmacy practice."
