|Auburn Gets Kirby Lester Donation||| Print ||
The Auburn University Harrison School of Pharmacy is the recipient of a new KL 16 tablet counting machine from Kirby Lester.
In addition to Auburn, Kirby Lester counting technology has been donated to schools of pharmacy at the University of Florida, the University of Louisiana-Monroe, and the University of Arkansas in partnership with Wal-Mart. Last year the company also donated a counting machine to Dr. Alex Kendziordske and his African Youth Outreach program for work with AIDS patients in Africa.
Christopher Thomsen, Kirby Lester's VP of business development, noted that the company has had a strong tradition of working with schools of pharmacy for the past three decades. "We are proud to continue this tradition. Today's pharmacy students understand the value of technology and how it will best be utilized to move the profession forward," he says.
In commenting on the new KL 16, Lee Evans, dean of the School of Pharmacy at Auburn, says, "Our student pharmacists must be versed on a broad array of technology designed to decrease medical errors and to improve the efficiency of the drug delivery system. The Kirby Lester system is a valuable example of what pharmacists must incorporate into their practices."
