Manchester student lands another Fulbright grant

Emily Pleadwell ’16 is headed to Vietnam for a year as Manchester University’s latest Fulbright award winner. She was awarded the prestigious grant after spending last summer teaching English as a second language to Vietnamese domestic violence survivors in southern California as part of Manchester’s Pathways summer service program. Since 1996, 30 Manchester students have been awarded Fulbrights for research or teaching abroad, more per capita than any other Indiana college or university. Check out Emily’s story here.

This is an intensive one-year program designed to send graduates into well-paying jobs in this emerging field that is a key component of personalized medicine, and Manchester has prepared for is by installing a state-of-the-art pharmacogenomics laboratory.

Pharmacy organization lands national honor

Manchester’s pharmacy program, which graduates its first class in May, continues to garner national recognition. At the American Pharmacists Association annual meeting in Baltimore in March, MU’s chapter of the American Pharmacists Association-Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASA) was recognized as the Up-and-Coming Chapter of the Year. APhA-ASA provides students with additional opportunities to develop as professionals and exposes them to a broad range of career options. Read more here.
