Cardinal Health Generation Rx Champions Award sponsored by the Cardinal Health Foundation

This award, given in Pennsylvania for the first time in 2012, honors a pharmacist who has demonstrated outstanding commitment to raising awareness of the dangers of prescription drug abuse among the general public and among the pharmacy community. The award is also intended to encourage educational prevention efforts aimed at patients, youth, and other members of the community.

This Year's Recipient:

Dan Ventricelli, PharmD, MPH


Daniel Ventricelli, PharmD, MPH  graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2013 and is currently a faculty member at the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy.  He has also spent his time educating students and peers on the dangers of substance abuse.  He serves as an instructor in a pharmacy elective course, Therapeutics of Substance Abuse and Addiction, which, due to its popularity may be transformed into a required course for pharmacy students and other health professions across the University.  In his role of co-advisor to the Generation Rx student organization, he oversaw the design and implementation of 19 outreach events throughout the year, including student-led visits to community pharmacies in the areas with the highest rates of drug overdose to provide pharmacists with information on the statewide naloxone standing order.
