Sebok Pharmacy Lecture

Sebok Pharmacy Lecture focuses on ‘Pharmacists as Providers’

U.S. Army Capt. Lisa Tonrey, an active-duty commissioned officer of the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS), was the guest speaker during the Raabe College of Pharmacy’s fifth annual Sebok Pharmacy Lecture. Tonrey delivered her lecture, “Pharmacists as Providers – Challenging the Status Quo,” in ONU’s Freed Center for the Performing Arts in January.

Tonrey has been with the USPHS for the past 22 years, and, during that time, she has held numerous positions as both a pharmacist and a health administrator. Her federal service includes time with USPHS Bureau of Medical Services, U.S. Army, Health Resources and Services Administration-Bureau of Primary Healthcare, and the Indian Health Service.

During her career, Tonrey has worked with a variety of pharmacy and health care programs across the United States. She is a former president of the American Pharmacists Association, the first woman on active duty to hold this position. Her presidential initiative to allow pharmacists to immunize in all 50 states and U.S. territories is today a reality.
