Each month, it is such a great honor to share with you all the wonderful things happening at Roseman’s Henderson campus. Every day our students, faculty and staff do amazing things to help each other succeed, to enrich others in their profession, or to help their community. It’s part of the Roseman culture and I couldn’t be prouder of their outstanding work.
This month is American Pharmacists Month, a time to recognize all the ways that pharmacists (and pharmacy teams) contribute to healthcare. You may not know, but pharmacists are one of the most accessible and trusted members of the healthcare team and because of this, they are able to make a significant impact on the patients that they serve. They do more than distribute prescription drugs to patients. They also provide advice to patients and other health professionals on how to use or take medication, the correct dose of a drug, and potential side effects. They help manage chronic disease, counsel patients, conduct health and wellness checks, and administer vaccines. They also play an important role in educating the public on a variety of topics, including chronic disease management and drug abuse and misuse. At Roseman, our students, guided by faculty and preceptors, do much of this even before graduating with the Doctor of Pharmacy.
Speaking of pharmacy faculty, I’d like to congratulate several faculty for helping share knowledge with pharmacy students and faculty at pharmacy schools across the country, through the publication of “Pharmacy Practice Skills: A Guide for Students and Instructors.” The guide was authored by Dr. Vasudha Gupta with Dr. Susan Nguyen, Dr. Evan Williams, Dr. Mickayla Clark and Dr. Catherine Cone. Published by McGraw Hill, the guide is now available via AccessPharmacy.
I’d also like to recognize a faculty member from the College of Dental Medicine’s orthodontics residency program here at the Henderson campus. Dr. Karthikeyan Subramani was recently awarded the Biomedical Research Award from the American Association of Orthodontists. The aim of his research study is to fabricate nanoparticles of a naturally occurring dietary compound and evaluate the remineralization potential of such novel nanoparticles on artificial white spot lesions on extracted human teeth.
Also, from the College of Dental Medicine, Dr. Glen Roberson, director of the orthodontics residency program, was recognized last month at a 2021 Nevada Business Magazine Healthcare Hero. Dr. Roberson was awarded in the Education category for his outstanding work and dedication to educating the next generation of orthodontists. Dr. Roberson has been with the College of Dental Medicine for 11 years. I’d like to congratulate him on this outstanding achievement.
I’d like to close this month’s report by welcoming to campus the new class of ABSN students in the College of Nursing. There are 50 students in this year’s October cohort. I look forward to watching these students learn and grow into competent and compassionate nurses.
