The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy congratulaties our Albert Schweitzer Fellows Mary Vincent and Abby Strazar, who just completed their year of service and became “Fellows for Life," part of a alumni network, which includes some  3,000 physicians, nurses, lawyers, public health specialists, social workers, pharmacists, occupational therapists, and other leaders in health-related fields, this corps of dedicated professionals. As part of their service, Vincent and Strazar built upon a past fellow’s project to enhance hypertension outcomes and access to care for patients at Grace in the City Free Clinic

The college also congratulates Andrea Lee and Godsfavour Umoru, this year’s newly announced fellows from Ohio State's College of Pharmacy. They will become the fifth and sixth Schweitzer fellows from the college. For their project, Lee and Umoru are addressing the health of patients in downtown Columbus who have serious and persistent mental illnesses. They aim to improve the use of medications for these patients’ psychiatric and medical needs and reduce/prevent the occurrence of harmful drug events. Their community site is Southeast Inc. Health Clinic.
