Samantha (Wykle) Zoske, PH’03, and her husband Sam Zoske were one of three finalists in Cardinal Health’s Best Practices Text-to-Vote competition at the annual Retail Business Conference (RBC) for independent pharmacies. The Zoske’s best practice was a prescription auto fill program that eliminates patients’ wait time for prescriptions and helps increase the likelihood that they are compliant with their medications. In honor of the Zoske’s, Cardinal Health gave a $1,000 award to Drake University’s College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. The Zoskes have chosen to donate the money to Drake’s DELTA Rx Institute.
The DELTA Rx Institute promotes entrepreneurial leadership in the pharmacy profession. The organization encourages pharmacists and students to proactively identify and pursue new opportunities to create value for patients and for society by recognizing and fulfilling their professional obligation to promote change, identify and pursue opportunities, and to improve their patients’ lives.
The Zoske’s currently own and operate Medicap Pharmacies in Marshalltown and Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
