Pre-Professional Health Programs at EOU
PROGRAMS for YOUR LIFE
Depending upon the academic area, the College of Arts & Sciences offers course work, paralleling requirements of universities from which degrees in those areas are offered. EOU and the Northeast Oregon Area Health Education Center, in partnership, launched the health speaker series with the goal of providing students interested in pursuing healthcare careers the opportunity to hear first-hand experiences from members of the area medical community.

Plan to attend to learn more about the field of pharmacy!
Bob Coulter, RPh ~ Bob & Sue Coulter have owned Red Cross Drug since 1983. They employ about 25 people who work in 3 pharmacies in La Grande and Enterprise. The main store is a traditional “corner drug store” with cards, gifts, candy, medical equipment as well as prescription services. They also have a full compounding lab where custom formulations are made when a doctor orders them. Also in La Grande, they operate a closed door or long term care pharmacy that serves patients in community based care settings in Union, Wallowa and Umatilla counties. These medications and supplies are delivered daily. In 2010 the Coulters opened Olive Branch Pharmacy in Enterprise in partnership with Olive Branch Family Health and Theresa Russell, FNP.
Sarah Williams, DP ~ Sarah Williams graduated from Pacific University College of Pharmacy in 2013 where she received her Doctorate in Pharmacy. She began working at Red Cross Drug Store shortly after and continues to work there presently. Sarah wants to make a difference in patients’ lives by getting to know them and their needs and how she can take a part in improving their well-being. One step Sarah has taken towards this is attending an extensive training in the preparation of customized prescriptions (compounding) which is an area of pharmacy she is passionate about. She feels compounding can make a real difference in many patients’ health and lives.
