BY Staff Writer

New York — CVS Caremark has donated $250,000 to the Chicago State University’s College of Pharmacy for the development of the CVS Caremark Student Center and Technology Laboratory.

“This donation will help to improve the College’s physical space and technological resources, which greatly enhances student success within the College of Pharmacy. To say thank you is an understatement,” stated Dean Miriam Mobley Smith with the College of Pharmacy.

“CVS Caremark is pleased to support Chicago State University’s College of Pharmacy and its mission to educate and train new generations of pharmacists,” stated Papatya Tankut, VP pharmacy affairs at CVS Caremark. "The CVS Caremark Student Center and Technology Laboratory will help ensure that students are prepared for success in a rapidly evolving pharmacy industry."

The grant, disbursed over a five-year period, will support pharmacy students by providing:

Integrative learning: This laboratory will provide students with an opportunity for small group hands-on experiences in preparing for and conducting presentations and using new technology in their preparatory efforts;

Development of practical skills to enhance scholarship: The new center will be used to enhance faculty-student engagement. Through this experience students will improve and expand upon their oral, writing, and research skills; and

Social interaction: Students will work together to strengthen intercultural language, values and traditions to foster one-team spirit and objectives.

"This gift will create educational opportunities that will enable our pharmacy students to achieve success as individuals and contributors to the global healthcare community," added CSU president Wayne D. Watson. “We are grateful for the generosity of CVS Caremark, who supports our mission of teaching a diverse community of scholars.”

Meijer expands Made in Michigan initiative

BY Staff Writer

Grand Rapids, Mich. — Meijer has expanded its program that supports Michigan small businesses to feature 55 new Michigan-made grocery products in all its stores statewide, Meijer co-chairman Doug Meijer announced Tuesday.

"Meijer is committed to supporting Michigan businesses, and the Made in Michigan initiative is a great opportunity to highlight some fantastic small businesses throughout the state," Meijer said. "The response we received from our customers last year about this initiative was overwhelming, which is why we decided to further invest and expand this selection into all our Michigan stores."

Meijer launched the Made in Michigan initiative in January 2012 with the Michigan State University Product Center for Food-Ag-Bio. Its goal is to help strengthen the state’s economy by supporting Michigan small businesses. The initial offering of 49 grocery items – including marinara sauce, blueberry butter and gluten-free baking mixes – resulted in an estimated economic impact of $400,000 statewide.

This year’s lineup of 55 Michigan-made grocery products will be more visible in all of the 102 Meijer stores in Michigan. Items including barbeque sauces, cherry butter, salsas, guacamole and kettle chips are expected to have an estimated economic impact of $900,000 statewide said Matt Birbeck, High Impact Venture Action Team project manager for the MSU Product Center.

"It’s been a fantastic opportunity for all Michigan businesses to have this local section at Meijer; many of them see amazing results," Birbeck said. "Now that it’s in every Michigan Meijer store, everybody gets to see and taste the diversity of this great state."

Meijer worked with the MSU Product Center and its HI-VAT initiative to expand the program and ensure that all the suppliers had the right food protocols and supply chain procedures. The items are expected to remain on the shelves for a year, and will have an opportunity to branch out chain-wide. Of the initial items that were featured in 33 Meijer stores last year, a few products are under consideration to be mainstreamed onto the shelves as part of the retailer’s regular grocery offerings.
