The UConn School of Pharmacy’s 2022 Preceptors of the Year were honored at a reception held on October 13. All preceptors were selected based on student nominations and are based in Connecticut.
Jennifer Luciano, Pharm.D., Director Experiential Education and Associate Clinical Professor, was the host for the evening. “The last two and a half years have been challenging on multiple fronts. The pandemic has continued to effect all areas of our lives including personal and work environments.” Luciano commented. “We are extremely grateful to our community partners and preceptors for their flexibility and understanding when it comes to student placements and for their willingness to continue to mentor students despite the increased work and stress it may propose.”
