March 16, 2012

The University of Lethbridge's Faculty of Health Sciences is the recipient of a $2-million endowment enabled by a $1-million donation from Spitz Sunflower Seeds founder Tom Droog, who received an honorary degree from uLethbridge in 2006. His gift will allow the institution to establish the Emmy Droog Chair in Complementary and Alternative Health Care -- the health sciences faculty's first endowed professorship. uLethbridge president Mike Mahon says the donation will be a unique complement to existing health sciences programs and will help the university to better serve its students and the community. uLethbridge News Release
