ICHP created the Amy Lodolce Mentorship award in memorial to Amy Lodolce, a University of Illinois at Chicago College of Pharmacy faculty member who touched the lives of pharmacy students, residents, and colleagues through her passion for teaching and the profession of pharmacy. Throughout her time at the college, Amy oversaw the training of four PGY2 drug information pharmacy residents, all of whom are currently drug information faculty at various institutions. She worked directly with numerous PGY1 residents and APPE students during their drug information rotations. She also served as a formal mentor to her student advisees, and was the advisor of the Phi Delta Chi pharmacy fraternity for many years. As the Assistant Director of the Drug Information Group, Amy served as an informal mentor to other faculty and was quick to help new faculty become oriented and situated. Amy approached being a leader and a mentor with an “open door” policy and would selflessly pause her work to address others’ needs. Students, residents, and faculty were impacted by her dedication as she worked tirelessly to provide them with quality learning opportunities. On August 31st, 2012, Amy passed away at the young age of 38 after a long illness, and this award was created in her memory. Amy’s dedication and generosity to the profession of pharmacy have positively shaped many pharmacists’ careers, and the memory of her will continue to do so.
