Professional development events available to women in science

By Rebecca Schwan

University of Toledo female students, staff and faculty interested in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM) fields are encouraged to take advantage of upcoming Association for Women in Science (AWIS) opportunities.

“The Association for Women in Science is the largest multidisciplinary organization for women working in STEMM,” said Dr. Susanne Nonekowski, associate lecturer in the Department of Medicinal and Biological Chemistry and president of the AWIS Northwestern Ohio Chapter. “These events are designed to support equity and full participation of women in all science-related disciplines and across all employment sectors.”

A workshop for preparing a professional social media profile titled “How to Craft the Perfect LinkedIn Profile in 30 Minutes” will take place Wednesday, Nov. 2, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in the Martin Conference Room of the Frederick and Mary Wolfe Center on Health Science Campus.

Mary Jo Borden, practicum coordinator in the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, will share best practices for creating a presence online and explain how to use LinkedIn’s search functions to build a professional network. A photographer also will be on hand to take professional headshots.

“This workshop will be valuable to students, faculty and staff,” Nonekowski said. “Whether you are new to LinkedIn or if it has been a while since you updated your profile, this event will have you looking your best online.”

The group also is seeking individuals interested in becoming members of its Mentorship Circle.

“We are looking for anyone interested in connecting with other women in the STEMM fields in order to build relationships and learn from those who were once in their shoes,” Nonekowski said. “Mentors can be from any science-related career field, whether academic or professional. We want individuals who are motivated and interested in supporting other women as they grow in STEMM careers.”

Mentors and mentees will be paired according to career interest and meet once a month throughout the academic year.

“The Mentorship Circle is in the planning stages, but we want to be sure that everyone who is interested has the chance to join us before mentoring teams are established,” she said. “There have been several successful Mentorship Circles across the country, and we are excited to bring this program to the Toledo area.”

Nonekowski said UT is an institutional partner with AWIS, which means any undergraduate or graduate student enrolled in a STEMM field can register with the organization for free at awis.org/utoledo. When registering, students should be sure to choose the Northwestern Ohio Chapter to be notified of local activities.

“We are grateful to the University for their support of AWIS,” Nonekowski said. “This partnership is instrumental to the support of female science students and professionals across northwest Ohio.”

For more information about AWIS, to join the Mentorship Circle, or to register for the LinkedIn event, call 419.530.1979 or email susanne.nonekowski@utoledo.edu.


Jay Mirtallo receives 2016 Distinguished Alumnus Award

Jay Mirtallo and Dana Fitzsimmons

Jay Mirtallo ’76 and Dana Fitzsimmons ’76

The College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences selected Jay Mirtallo, BSP ’76, for the 2016 Distinguished Alumni Award. Mr. Mirtallo is considered to be one of the world’s pharmacy specialist pioneers. He has been instrumental in leading cost-effective practices in parenteral and enteral nutrition and advancing the role of the pharmacist in nutrition support services.

Parenteral nutrition, also known as intravenous feeding, and enteral nutrition, which delivers food to the gastrointestinal tract, are often essential to the life and health of children and adults with special medical needs.

The recipient of the Clinical Practice Award from the American College of Clinical Pharmacy in 2007, Mr. Mirtallo has focused his research comparative evaluations of amino acid injection products, the use of fat as a calorie source, parenteral nutrition compatibility and stability, and systems issues in the preparation, administration and management of parenteral nutrition.

Mr. Mirtallo has been a professor of clinical pharmacy and director of the Master of Science program in Health-System Pharmacy at Ohio State University in Columbus for 38 years. While he has made his mark in his field in research and teaching, he has also contributed through leadership and setting national policy.

Mr. Mirtallo served as president of the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition in 2011, a 6,000 member organization made up of doctors, dieticians, nurses, pharmacists and scientists who are involved in providing clinical support to patients, and he advocated for reimbursement of enteral and parenteral nutrition in the hospital and home. As a representative to the Joint Commission on accreditation for health systems, he served on the task force that created the Nutrition Care Standards, and also he chaired a parenteral nutrition safety summit for the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition, which led to the development of the safety consensus recommendations recently released by that organization and the American Society for Health System Pharmacists.

Mr. Mirtallo also recently co-authored an etiology-based definition of malnutrition which is the basis for an inter-professional malnutrition strategy that has been adapted by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The new definition improves access to appropriate medical care for those suffering from malnutrition.

A native of the Catskills region in New York state, Mr. Mirtallo was enrolled in the pre-med program at Ohio State when he decided that pharmacy was really where he wanted to be.  He transferred to UT after looking at other schools and credits iconic pharmacy professor Dr. Bob Schlembach for the impact he made during his time at UT and in his career.

Submitted by The P1 class, Cosmetic Science and Formulation Design 

P1 students from the Cosmetic Science and Formulation Design major had the privilege of going to the Society of Cosmetic Chemist Michigan Chapter meeting in Big Rapids, Michigan at Ferris State University. We arrived to the university’s campus early afternoon to attend a presentation given by the executive board of the chapter. The presentation was about careers in the cosmetic industry and why making cosmetics is a science. After the talk, we had the opportunity to display posters and to network with major cosmetic companies such as Dow Corning and Amway before the meeting officially started.

There were two lectures given by guest speakers that day entitled, “Green Fragrance Solubilizers” and “Exopolysaccharides – EPS.” They were both very interesting and educational and gave us all an insight into the science of formulation. After the talks, we were able to continue networking over a lovely meal catered by the university. As a class, we graciously appreciate the funding from the dean’s office that made this trip a success. None of the students that went had ever been to a SCC meeting before, and we were very excited that we had the opportunity to go thanks to the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. We gained so much knowledge on the industry and the science behind formulating.


PCCA Compounding Bootcamp at UT

In October, the Professional Compounding Centers of America (PCCA) held its semiannual Compounding Bootcamp for pharmacy students at The University of Toledo. Compounding pharmacists and technicians from PCCA conduct the two-day weekend compounding lab experience. The bootcamp facilitates students’ understanding of the design and principles governing pharmacy compounded preparations, the skills necessary to extemporaneously compound pharmaceutical dosage forms, the mathematical concepts and operations necessary to safely design and dose effective pharmaceuticals, and the governing bodies, laws and regulatory agencies that shape pharmacy practice. PCCA is headquartered in Houston, Texas; UT is the only offsite location for PCCA’s Compounding Bootcamp program.

See a short slide show about this year’s bootcamp


State of the College 2016

Since 2013, Dean Early has delivered a State of the College address each fall at the Honors and Awards Convocation, a ceremony that recognizes student achievement and honors the donors and friends of the college. This year’s address focused on the return on investment seen by donors, new academic programs, the uniqueness of the college’s programs, and research.
