College of Psychiatric and Neurologic Pharmacists Foundation Announces 2017 Defining the Future Grant Recipients

The CPNP Foundation is pleased to announce the recipients of the third annual Defining the Future Research Grant Awards. There were many applicants who submitted exciting and important project proposals, and we thank everyone who applied. Ultimately, the CPNP Foundation selected three grant recipients.

A requirement of the grant program is that the research project must mirror one of the current interests of the Foundation. The grant selection team felt that the three selected research projects aligned well with topics in psychiatry, neurology, and substance use disorders. The award recipients are as follows (in alphabetical order):

  • Amanda Colistro, PharmD student, Midwestern University : Safe Opioid Prescribing Course Effect on Opioid Overdose Knowledge and Attitude Scales Across Multidisciplinary Students
  • Andrew Naglich, PharmD, VA North Texas Healthcare System: Association of SSRI/ SNRI Treatment with Substance Use Disorder Symptom Severity in Veterans with PTSD
  • Deepika Rao, Graduate Student, Duquesne University: Community Pharmacist and Substance Abuse Disorders: Attitudes, Knowledge and Practice.”

Defining the Future Grants are awarded annually. Applications are due late summer, and recipients are announced in early October. Pharmacy students, residents, and fellows are eligible to apply. Now is the time to start thinking about your research project and planning to submit it for consideration for a 2018 Defining the Future Grant.
