Drake University's College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (CPHS) has received a $125,000 gift from Cardinal Health Inc., an Ohio-based pharmaceutical and medical supply company,  to fund scholarships for pharmacy students interested in working for independent pharmacies. Drake was one of four schools selected to receive the gift. In recent years, CPHS has developed a targeted initiative that includes an internship program, a business plan competition, support for the student chapter of the National Community Pharmacists Association and scholarships. The Cardinal Health gift will allow Drake University to continue providing support to students who are interested in working for independent pharmacies.
