A distinguished alumnus of the Oregon State University College of Pharmacy's class of 1982 is returning to campus from his native Cameroon to receive an award for the work he has done in his home country.
Nkwenti Davidson Achu will receive the Noel B. Flynn Award for Alumni Achievement Thursday, June 11, at 3 p.m. in the Pharmacy Building Conference Room 213. During the event, which is free and open to the public, Achu will speak on "Health Care and Pharmacy Practice in Cameroon." A traditional Cameroon tea ceremony and a red feather presentation, also a Cameroon tradition, will follow.
Achu is the president of the Cameroon Diabetes Association, the owner of a popular Cameroon pharmacy, president of the National Council of the Pharmaceutical Society of Cameroon and vice president of the Commonwealth Pharmacists Association. Through the years he has been a champion for the treatment of chronic diseases, and has helped create three pharmacy schools in the country, using lessons he gained from his time at OSU.
