LANSING – Richard Dettloff, an alumnus of Ferris State University, was one of 12 people appointed to the Controlled Substance Advisory Commission by Gov. Rick Snyder. The commission recommends actions to address identified problems of abuse.
Dettloff, of Rockford, earned a bachelor’s degree in Pharmacy at Ferris in 1989 and later a Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of Cincinnati. Currently, he serves as a medical outcomes specialist for Pfizer and is an adjunct faculty member in Ferris’ College of Pharmacy, at Michigan State University and Western Michigan University.
As part of his duties, Dettloff will represent the representatives of pharmaceutical manufacturers.
“The individuals appointed will provide the commission with their unique backgrounds and skills in their specific fields,” Snyder said. “Substance abuse is not something we should overlook or take lightly and I am confident the appointees will work hard to address this issue.”
Appointees will serve two-year terms that expire on Aug. 30, 2013, and are subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.
