CLHS grad, pharmacist to speak to students during January mentor lunch

Jan. 4, 2018

FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Concordia Lutheran High School’s alumni mentor program on Jan. 11 will feature Dr. Julie Bolinger, a 2006 graduate, who will talk about her career as a clinical pharmacist.  

Bolinger received her Doctorate in Pharmacy from Purdue University, College of Pharmacy. She completed her residency with Purdue University/Mathes Diabetes Center where she stayed on for a few years as a professor of pharmacy practice and ran the center.

She currently works for the VA hospital in Fort Wayne as a clinical pharmacist managing diabetes, cholesterol, blood pressure, thyroid and smoking cessation for patients. She is also a certified health coach and has a part-time health coaching business.

When people hear the occupation of “pharmacist” most think CVS or Walgreens, but Bolinger says that there is much more to the profession, and she will share based on her own work and her work with Purdue University.

The presentation will begin at approximately 11:10 a.m. in the PFC.

Students, if you are interested in attending, please RSVP to Mrs. Erdos at lerdos@clhscadets.com or Mrs. Eckert at aeckert@clhscadets.com if you plan to attend. Lunch will be provided to those that attend.
