Mylan School of Pharmacy

Congratulations to Dr. Khalid Kamal and Ritu Bhattacharya who earned an award at the annual Drug Information Association (DIA) meeting in San Diego in June. Ritu, a PhD student from West Virginia University, won the second prize for a poster titled "Budget Impact Analysis of Tofacitinib for Treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis."

According to Kamal, only 18 students were selected to present at the conference, and their travel and registration were paid by DIA. "This work was initiated in my advanced decision modeling course that I taught at WVU school of pharmacy last spring," said Kamal, who is an Associate Professor in the Duquesne University Mylan School of Pharmacy's Division of Clinical, Social and Administrative Sciences.

The DIA website states that the nonprofit association has evolved from a group of 30 professionals employed in academia and the pharmaceutical industry into a global, multidisciplinary association of nearly 18,000 members in more than 80 countries.
