Evan Schnur ’12 received the Rising Star award at the Next-Generation Pharmacist awards gala in August.
Schnur is the director of commercial contracting for the payer relations team at Walmart in Bentonville, Arkansas, where he is responsible for building relationships and negotiating agreements with pharmacy benefit managers, state governments, and health plans. Schnur was selected from among three finalists in the Rising Star category.
“Receiving this award was a humbling experience,” Schnur says. “I’m fortunate to have many great mentors, including several from the College, that have helped me get to where I am today and I can’t thank them enough for their support. It is exciting to be a part of a great profession and it is an honor to be recognized.”
The Next-Generation awards honor pharmacists, technicians, student pharmacists, and industry advocates who are defining the future of the industry. This year, nominations were received across 11 award categories. The awards are presented by Parata Systems and Pharmacy Times and are selected by an independent panel of judges.
