- MESSAGE FROM ASSOCIATE DEAN TARA JENKINS, who was recruited to TUC from the University of Houston: You might have noticed a box outside the door of my office collecting school supplies for the county that lost all of its schools to Hurricane Harvey. One of my former students at the University of Houston is from that county so she worked with the College and the APhA-ASP chapter to arrange the school supply drive prior to Harvey hitting Houston. When Harvey produced so much flooding, it became nearly impossible for them to continue the drive until the waters receded. The officers of our Touro California chapter of APhA-ASP stepped up to the plate and helped collect school supplies for them. Attached are pictures of over 50 backpacks filled with school supplies and snacks the chapter collected for UH’s drive. I was overwhelmed with the generosity of our students and their families and pharmacies that contributed to make this happen. Many thanks as well to the various faculty and staff who have contributed to the school supplies collected or who contributed money that I have used to buy more supplies for them. I will be shipping off all of the supplies on Friday afternoon if anyone has been thinking about dropping in some supplies and hasn’t had a chance yet.
- CAREER AND RESIDENCY DAY at Touro University California College of Pharmacy: We look forward to seeing you on Friday, September 15 from 10 am to 1 pm. You will have the opportunity to meet with over 12 companies and residency programs, including Alameda Health System, Sutter Health, Santa Clara Valley, NorthBay, Touro University California, CVS, Safeway, Rite Aid, Walgreens, PharMerica, RxRelief, Kaiser Permanente.
- KUDOS to Dr. Rae Matsumoto, Dean, and her colleagues for their paper, "Deuterated (d6)-dextromethorphan elicits antidepressant-like effects in mice," which was accepted for publication in Pharmacology Biochemistry and Behavior.
MESSAGE FROM THE PROVOST: Today marks the 16th anniversary of 9/11, a date that will forever be etched into our collective memories. On this solemn day, we honor the memory of those who died and reflect upon the sacrifices of survivors, first responders and volunteers who responded to this tragedy in a spirit of great unity and service.
- As you reflect on this national tragedy, I invite you to stand together in unity to defy the ignorance and hatred that brought us September 11, and reach out to those from different cultures and backgrounds to help us create a stronger and more compassionate nation. As a learning community, we have shown how people from diverse backgrounds can work together, learn together, and play together without giving up our ethnic or religious heritage or identity. I am proud to be a part of this community and join you in this day of remembrance.
