Conestoga to establish pharmaceutical studies centre, launch pharmaceutical programs

Conestoga College will open a Centre for Pharmaceutical Studies at its Kitchener – Doon campus, thanks in part to a $2.2M gift from Toronto-based philanthropist Diane Blake. Blake’s donation will be used to renovate the building, purchase equipment, hire staff, and establish a set of bursaries and scholarships. Conestoga will launch pharmacy technician and assistant programs this fall and has plans to offer post-graduate programs in pharmaceutical science, pharmaceutical discovery, and pharmacovigilance. “We are deeply grateful for Diane Blake’s leadership in supporting Conestoga’s efforts to address the growing needs of the communities we serve through the development of skilled pharmaceutical professionals,” said Conestoga President John Tibbits.
