Pharmacist Grant

Visiting Nurse Services has announced that the van Beuren Charitable Foundation has awarded a $78,000 grant to URI College of Pharmacy in partnership with VNS to expand the PharmD Resident program. VNS has had a URI PharmD Resident for the past three years on a one-day-per-week basis. The grant allows for an additional pharmacist for 20 hours per week. The expansion of this program will address the needs of the VNS “high risk” patients in the home care population.
