College of Pharmacy alums Staci Hubert, Pharm.D., and Joy Beranek, Pharm.D., were named 2015 Preceptors of the Year. Fourth-year students lauded the Ashland Pharmacy pharmacists for a rotation which included hands-on experience with patients, including providing cognitive services and blood-pressure readings. Students who took the Ashland rotation also got the unique experience of working in both retail and compounding pharmacy.
Drs. Hubert and Beranek modeled continuity of care, putting their patients first and a love of their chosen profession.
