HARRISBURG — The Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association (PPA) named Jerry Musheno, of Clarks Summit, recipient of the Bowl of Hygeia Award during PPA’s 2017 Annual Conference, held Sept. 23 at the Kalahari Resorts and Convention Center.
The Bowl of Hygeia Award is granted to a Pennsylvania pharmacist who has demonstrated sustained commitment to community service, apart from his or her specific identification as a pharmacist, which reflects well on the profession of pharmacy. The Bowl of Hygeia Award is the highest honor bestowed by a state pharmacy association.
Musheno is a graduate of The University of Scranton, Temple University School of Pharmacy and Temple University Beasley School of Law. He has enjoyed a varied pharmacy career, including operating his own pharmacy. He currently teaches the pharmacy law programs at both Wilkes University Nesbitt School of Pharmacy and the Jefferson University College of Pharmacy, in addition to being a pharmacy law consultant.
With more than 30 years of community service experience, he has volunteered his time and served in leadership roles for many professional organizations as well as community boards, including, most recently, St. Joseph’s Center Foundation, Employment Opportunity Training Center (EOTC), St. Mary’s Villa and Lackawanna Pro Bono. He currently serves as chair of the Lackawanna Blind Association and is also chair of Skills in Scranton for the Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce.
