2023 VPA Challenge Coin - Jeff Schnoor
Congratulations to our Challenge Coin Winner - Lieutenant Colonel Jeff Schnoor, MBA, PharmD! This year’s recipient has been a pharmacist for twenty years as well as a member of the United States Army & United States Army Reserve for the same period. His notable dual- career is highlighted by the leadership roles he has accepted, including as the Medication Safety Coordinator for UVM Medical Center and multiple command positions for the military. We honored Lt. Col. Schnoor at our Spring 2023 Meeting; as luck would have it, he was mobilized by the Army Reserve this weekend to attend Command School. Thank you for your service and congratulations!
