    The University of Kansas School of Pharmacy has recognized Harold Godwin, professor emeritus, as its 2023 Distinguished Service Award recipient. Godwin, a Ness City native, served the University of Kansas for 47 years in faculty and administrative roles in the School of Pharmacy and what is now The University of Kansas Health System.

    “The University of Kansas School of Pharmacy has built its stellar reputation on the shoulders of smart, caring, hard-working and personable individuals with a common pursuit of excellence in all they do. Harold Godwin is one of those people,” said Ronald Ragan, dean of the pharmacy school, where Godwin served as department chair for pharmacy practice for 20 years. Godwin was also director of pharmacy at The University of Kansas Health System for 34 years. He retired in 2016.

    Godwin said the most significant change in pharmacy over his career was the transition of pharmacists from dispenser to caregiver.

KDHE is seeing an increase in therapies being wasted that are actually in-date - use to confirm the expiration dates for what is currently on your shelf.

    Interested in immunizations? Need some CE hours?? Come join Amanda, Aaron, and some incredible speakers at the Kansas Immunization Conference in Salina in June! The sessions are broken up into pre-conference (more back to the basics) and conference (for all immunization providers). Pharmacy CE is still being finalized, but likely about 6h for pre-conference and about 8 hours for the conference. 

    Most health departments in the state will be there, along with office managers, school nurses, and immunization advocates - this will be a great opportunity to connect with people who can help you improve immunization rates in your community.
