        WHITE COAT
As has been a tradition for over twen-
ty years, the ISU College of Pharmacy
welcomed our incoming P-1 students
in August during two separate cere-
monies in Pocatello and Anchorage.
On August 17, 92 students from our
Pocatello and Meridian sites received
their coats with their friends and
family in attendance. Dean Paul Cady
began the festivities by welcoming
the students as they officially begin
their Pharm.D. education. The guest
speaker for the evening was Nicole
Chopski, Pharm.D., chair of the Idaho
State Board of Pharmacy. The evening
was also honored to have in atten-
dance Christopher Oswald, Pharm.D.
