College of Pharmacy Awarded FDA Opioid Education Grant

OPIOID PHARMCY FDA GRANT

The Howard University College of Pharmacy was recently awarded an $85,899 grant to educate the region’s pharmacists and pharmacy technicians on the dangers of opioid addiction and abuse. The grant, which was awarded to the Office of Continuing Professional Education in the college, originated as a result of a mandate from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The award marks the first time that a pharmacy institution in the country has been awarded this grant in its seven-year cycle. As the only pharmacy school in the District of Columbia, it has taken the lead in the public conversation about substance use disorder.
