The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Jerry H. Hodge School of Pharmacy conducted its annual Celebration of Achievement May 8 to recognize faculty and staff who have helped make the 2019-2020 school year a special one for students.
Faculty and staff members were presented with many prestigious awards. However, the event that ordinarily held in person and simulcast between the Abilene, Amarillo, Lubbock and Dallas campuses was hosted completely online. An online program was distributed that was packed full of awards, recognitions and an appreciation video from students.
2020 has proven to individuals across the country that health care workers are invaluable to our society and often make daily sacrifices for the betterment of their communities. The health care workforce in West Texas would not be the resilient, innovative group that it is today without the help of TTUHSC’s School of Pharmacy faculty and staff.
