Covid-19: Pitt Pharmacy is Leading the Way
Excerpts from our Dean-
"At PittPharmacy, we have found new ways to work, to teach, to learn, and to conduct research."
"Pharmacists needed to keep working in front-line roles as part of the essential personnel. Our priority has been to meet the needs of patients and the pharmacy community while optimizing the safety of our students. That combination was a call to action for innovation and creativity."
