Healing Gifts Endowment

This gift is established by Sherry D. Holland, ’75 College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and her husband, Philip A. Krieter. The donors believe that increased participation of minority students benefits not only an individual student, but also the larger pharmacy community and the student’s community of origin. Diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and their sequela, particularly renal insuffciency, disproportionately affect certain communities.

Health care providers from the community bring important understanding of the culture and traditions that are crucial to effective treatment of such diseases. It is important that the healing gifts of these students be appropriately developed and shared with others in the pharmacy community. In support of these aims, the donors established this endowment.
