FIND OUT HOW GOOD YOU REALLY ARE. I came to New York to play Division I soccer for LIU Brooklyn. I soon discovered a new passion: film and video. Before long, LIU hooked me up with internships at EMI Music, ICED media and Brooklyn Cable Access Television.

Submit your events to This Salutatorian is Strong in Body and Mind - Pharmacy student Cristian Merchan will graduate this month with an almost perfect 3.99 grade-point average, earning him the honor of being named LIU Brooklyn’s salutatorian for the class of 2013. But the Valley, Stream, L.I., resident doesn’t just score high in the classroom. Crisitian — who during high school created a physical training program for overweight students — placed second last year in the Mr. LIU Weightlifting Competition. Cristian, who suffered from severe asthma as a youth, credits a pharmacist for helping to manage his illness with the proper medications. He will officially graduate with a doctor of pharmacy degree at LIU Brooklyn’s commencement ceremonies May 16 at Barclays Center.  Our Students Raise $6,100 for Kenyan Project - LIU Pharmacy Partners with Heights and Hills - The International Drug and Information Center of LIU Pharmacy is teaming up with the community agency Heights and Hills to provide medication management services to the older residents of Brooklyn who are served by the agency. “Individuals taking medications often lack an understanding of their drug therapy,” said LIU Pharmacy Professor Joseph Nathan, who directs the IDIC. “This, in turn, may translate into improper use of medications and may result in unintended, negative outcomes.” Nathan said the collaboration serves as a learning opportunity for student pharmacists on rotation at the IDIC who, under the guidance of their faculty supervisors, review, assess, and generate reports on the medication regimens taken by the client.
