Walgreens Supports Diversity at Pharmacy Schools

Deerfield Walgreens has committed to donating more than $1 million annually to support initiatives dedicated to promoting diversity at the nation’s pharmacy schools. Each of the 111 accredited colleges of pharmacy across the country will receive $10,000 every year to aid their efforts at increasing diversity among pharmacy school students.

Today, fewer than 12% of students pursuing pharmacy degrees are minorities. With this new initiative, Walgreens hopes more students will be encouraged to consider the contributions they could make as front-line health professionals in America’s corner drug stores.
