What pharmacy students can do


  • Donations to the NSU College of Pharmacy provide a vital source of funds to supporting teaching, research development and maintenance of the University’s infrastructure. The University extends its warmest gratitude to Mr. Richard Lucibella, MPH, MBA, CEO at Accountable Care Options LLC for his ongoing support of the college.  Through Mr. Lucibella's generous donation, ACORN SEED is pleased to announce a scholarship awarded to NSU pharmacy students who exude the same professionalism and innovation as this scholarship's founder.
