The Michigan difference – it’s something that we discuss often and that is evident in the stories below.

Michigan Pharmacy students are keeping the community safe – and advocating for the profession on the international stage. Michigan Pharmacy alumni lead our national organizations, as well as impact every patient with whom they interact. Michigan Pharmacy faculty are on the cutting edge of advancing healthcare and science – in a white coat or a wet suit.  

While the value pharmacy brings to human health is clear to our students, faculty, alumni, donors, and friends, I wanted to share that message with more people. That is why I’ve spearheaded a collaboration with the deans of seven other Big Ten schools to launch an initiative aimed at making pharmacy’s impact known – and to make that special Michigan difference! 

Go Blue!
