Apotex Corp. Partners with NCPA Foundation to Support Matching Contribution Campaign
Apotex Corp. annually supports the NCPA Foundation mid-year fundraising phonathon campaign with a matching grant of up to $10,000. This year's campaign, titled "Preserving the Legacy of Independent Pharmacy" will be held May through June, 2010. For every dollar donated, Apotex will match that gift up to a total of $10,000. Campaign contributions will be used to help meet the funding demands of the NCPA Foundation and its valuable programs such as: disaster relief funding for pharmacy owners, student outreach to cultivate the next generation of pharmacy owners, educational programs on pharmacy ownership and low-interest educational loans and scholarships for pharmacy students interested in pharmacy ownership. In addition, the funds will support the Annual NCPA Pruitt-Schutte Student Business Plan Competition, turnkey community service program offerings for pharmacy owners and critical research to help advance independent pharmacy in the healthcare marketplace.
Apotex Corp. and Ohio Northern University (ONU) Partner on Pharmacy Software Initiative
Apotex Corp. and Ohio Northern University (ONU) Raabe College of Pharmacy have taken a leadership role in developing a new community pharmacy simulation software program. The new program, which will mirror the task of managing retail pharmacy operations, will benefit current and future pharmacy students and their eventual service in the profession of pharmacy.
Apotex Corp. initiated the program with a $75,000 pledge over three years to provide deliverables in 3 phases. Phase I (i.e., software development) and Phase II (i.e., beta testing) have been successfully completed. Phase III, currently underway, includes further refinements, select external testing, and eventual introduction of the software to other pharmacy colleges.
