“These donations of $50,000 will allow the Galen Society to provide financial assistance to needy pharmacy students who begin their training here in August,” said Curt Gielow, executive dean of Concordia University Wisconsin’s School of Pharmacy. “We are very grateful to this individual and The Northwestern Mutual Foundation for their support of these worthy students and this program.”
