This edition of
Pharmacy Magazine
unfortunately marks
the passing of three important members of the College of
Pharmacy’s family. They and their contributions will be greatly
missed within the College of Pharmacy and their communities.
With sadness and admiration, we dedicate this edition in
memory of:
James Cwengros
James Cwengros (P’83)
was killed with his wife,
Rita, and members of
their church group in an
automobile accident during
his fifth medical mission
trip to Haiti on Jan. 11,
2013. Jim’s mission trips
provided medical care and
supplies, building assistance
and water filtration systems. He played a key role in developing
several clinical initiatives at Spectrum Health, served as director
of Clinical Research at the Cook Institute and as director of
Medical and Research Specialists for Pfizer. His enthusiasm
for the profession is shown in his children; Eric is a graduate
of the College of Pharmacy, and Laura is pursuing a Doctor of
Pharmacy degree at The University of Michigan.
Lucy Ngoh
Lucy Ngoh lost her life after
being injured in a tragic
bus accident in her native
Cameroon on Dec. 30,
2012. As was her custom,
she was delivering supplies
and medications to friends
and family members over
winter break. Lucy’s research
focused on health literacy,
service learning and international health. She joined the College
of Pharmacy in 1992, serving on the Academic Senate, the Faculty
Center for Teaching and Learning Advisory Group, and the
International Education Committee, and as a facilitator for the
Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia.
James Turner
James Turner (P’49) passed
away peacefully at home
on Feb. 17, 2013. Deeply
involved in the practice and
instruction of pharmacy
as well as advocacy for
students, Jim joined the
College of Pharmacy
in 1975 and taught
Pharmacy Practice before
serving in college administration, contributing significantly
to the development of the post-Bachelor of Science Doctor of
Pharmacy Program and retiring as Associate Dean of Student
Academic Affairs in 1994. He was recognized with the Clark A.
Andreson Alumni Recognition Award and known for his service
to Relay for Life of Mecosta County and Meals on Wheels.
