New UH-Hilo Pharmacy Dean Visits Molokai
Molokai Drugs, Inc. News Release
For 16 years, Molokai Drugs has been a preceptor site for interns from the Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy (DKICOP) at the University of Hawaii-Hilo. As you can imagine, it was an honor to host Dr. Rae Matsumoto, the new dean at DKICOP, and Dr. Jarred Prudencio, the professor in charge of internships and experiences, on their first ever trip to Molokai. They were hosted by Molokai Drugs’ staff and were able to see first-hand the benefits and challenges of managing a rural, community pharmacy on an island with 7,000 residents.
