Dr. Lukas Every has maybe the most unique connection to NEOMED of any faculty member of the college. Lukas started out as a high school student literally across the street from NEOMED. After making the trip a whole 15 minutes away to Kent State University to complete his four-year degree, he returned home to Rootstown and graduated with a NEOMED Pharm.D. in 2013. He successfully completed two post-graduate residency experiences with University Hospital and made it as far as Maine for a few years, but as always, Lukas returned home to northeast Ohio.
Today, Dr. Every serves as an Associate Professor in Pharmacy Practice and as the Director for the Office of Experiential Education. I f you want to learn more about the NEOMED, residency opportunities, and careers in pharmacy, Lukas is the expert. Send him as email at email@example.com or book a short Zoom meeting with him using this link to his calendar at https://calendly.com/leverly/15-minute-pharmacy-careers .
