Students at Cedarville University School of Pharmacy are helping out the Cedar Medical Clinic in Ghana by raising money for equipment and creating formularies.

Last year, students raised money for equipment like an ultrasound machine for the diagnostic clinic located in Hohoe, Ghana.

This year, P3 students Jordan Long, Trevor Stump, and Mallory Thompson got involved in developing and optimizing formularies for the clinic, according to a school press release.

Phil Black, a retired pharmacist and advisory council member for Cedarville’s School of Pharmacy, will provide the formularies to the clinic when he leads a 10-day mission trip later this month, according to the school release.

Long said in the release that he hoped Cedarville students will be able to join Black on his trips in the future, “so that they can see the impact they are having on the people in Ghana.”

“We continue to stress one of our missions to serve the underserved and how we can use our resources to reach others for the Gospel,” said Phillip Thornton, PhD, vice chair and associate professor of pharmacy practice, in a press release.
