Huzzas to two faculty members of Long Island University’s School of Pharmacy on receiving prestigious awards from The New York State Council of Health-system Pharmacists (NYSCHP) Research and Education Foundation.

Robert DiGregorio, Associate Dean, Clinical Affairs and Professor of Pharmacy Practice at the Arnold and Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences was the recipient of the NYSCHP Pharmacy Achievement Award. The accolade is awarded to “an individual of high moral character, good citizenship and high professional ideals, who has made significant contributions to health-system pharmacy.”

Billy Sin, Assistant Professor of Pharmacy Practice at LIU Pharmacy, received two awards for his research projects from the Foundation — the Critical Care Award for his project entitled, “The use of high dose nitroglycerin for sympathetic crashing acute pulmonary edema,” and the Clinical Pharmacy Award for his work, “Implementa­tion of a novel practice model to mitigate opioid utilization in the emergency department.”

“These awards clearly underscore the outstanding leadership and valuable contributions to the field of pharmacy of our faculty,” said Dr. John Pezzuto, Dean of LIU Pharmacy and vice president for LIU Health and Research.
