University pharmacy students picked for national competition

NORMAN — A student team representing the University of Oklahoma College of Pharmacy has been named a finalist this week in a national student business plan competition, sponsored by the National Community Pharmacists Association.

The OU team next will square off against two other finalists in the 2013 Good Neighbor Pharmacy NCPA Pruitt-Schutte Student Business Plan Competition. They will present their business plan, “Wellness Integrative Pharmacy,” in a live completion at the NCPA’s annual convention this fall.

OU College of Pharmacy team members include John Lugafet, Noble, Naomi Kozlowski, Tulsa, Renee Andersen, Tulsa, and Tobi Olusola, Tulsa, with college advisers Eric J. Johnson and Justin Wilson. 

The competition, the first national competition of its kind in the pharmacy profession, drew submissions from 39 schools and colleges of pharmacy across the nation.

As finalists, members of the team will receive complimentary registration, travel and lodging to NCPA’s 115th annual Convention and Trade Exposition in Orlando, Fla.

A second student team from the OU College of Pharmacy placed in the top 10 of the competition with their Tulsa-centered business plan, “Empire Health Pharmacy & Wellness.” That team included students Lance Lugafet, Norman, Philip Looper, Owasso, Kevin Emesiani, Edmond, and Allison Osborne, Tahlequah, with college advisers Katherine O’Neal and Robin Milton.

The competition honors two champions of independent community pharmacy: the late Neil Pruitt Sr. and the late H. Joseph Schutte. It is supported by Good Neighbor Pharmacy, Pharmacists Mutual Companies and the NCPA Foundation.
