Jennifer L. Rodis, PharmD, BCPS, FAPhA, was recently presented with the Distinguished Achievement Award in Pharmacy Practice from the American Pharmacists Association (APhA) for her work with Partner for Promotion (PFP). The award was created to recognize an individual who has developed and/or implemented an innovative, original pharmacy program or service that is significant to their area of practice and was presented to Rodis at the APhA Annual Meeting in San Francisco, CA.
Now in its twelfth year, PFP is a collaboration of The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy faculty and students with community-based and health-system pharmacists to train and mentor students and pharmacists through implementation of sustainable advanced e-patient care services.
The model has been so successful that it has been expanded to six other colleges of pharmacy across the United States.
“It’s exciting that we are impacting communities in and around Ohio State,” said Rodis. “It’s even better that we can bring this longitudinal learning experience to pharmacy students across the country to help raise the level of education while also improving the lives of patients.”
PFP has been recognized previously with honors including the Distinguished Service-Learning Award from The Ohio State University, Innovative Teaching Award from the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, and a national Merit Award from the American Pharmacists Association.
