Over the past two years, students from the Cedarville University School of Pharmacy have worked closely with Cedar Medical Clinic in Ghana, where they help a local physician make a difference and spread the Gospel to the African nation.
Phillip Thornton, Ph.D., vice chair and associate professor of pharmacy practice, will travel to Ghana on Thursday, Feb. 11on a 10-day missions trip. Thornton will travel with Phil Black, a retired pharmacist from Beavercreek and advisory council member for Cedarville's School of Pharmacy.
Cedarville's pharmacy students created formularies, which are detailed lists of prescribed medications for Cedar Medical Clinic. Thornton and Black will deliver the students' work while in Ghana. Last year, Cedarville's pharmacy students raised money to purchase an ultrasound machine and other equipment for the clinic.
