Sachdev is president and CEO of the Employers’ Forum of Indiana, a clinical assistant professor at Purdue College of Pharmacy, adjunct assistant professor at Indiana University School of Medicine and the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists’ 2016 Distinguished Service Award Winner.

Pharmacy is a service-oriented profession – caring for patients and helping them achieve positive health outcomes – and Manchester emphasizes this focus. Its pharmacy students, as well as faculty and staff, embrace this commitment to service and pursue a variety of opportunities in northeast Indiana.

One day each semester, the Pharmacy Program suspends classes at the Fort Wayne campus and focuses entirely on service accomplishments of its students, faculty and staff.

It is typical to have more than 50 presentations. The day also provides a venue for area organizations to present unique service opportunities to the campus community.
