LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Bob Coulter, owner of Red Cross Drug Store, and Sarah Williams are the guest presenters for the first EOU Health Speaker Series of fall term.

Students and community members are invited to their presentation at 6 p.m. Oct. 24 in Badgley Hall, Room 102. There is no cost to attend.

Coulter and his wife Sue have operated Red Cross Drug Store since 1983. They currently run three pharmacies in La Grande and Enterprise, including a compounding lab where custom formulations are made when a doctor orders them.

Williams joined Red Cross earlier this year after completing her doctorate from Pacific University College of Pharmacy. She strives to make a difference in patients’ lives by improving their well-being, and has extensive training in compounding.

The speaker series is made possible by EOU and the Northeast Oregon Area Health Education Center 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. The series will continue through spring term with one presentation each month.
