Clinical pharmacist’s ‘exemplary service’ honored

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Albuquerque clinical pharmacist Charles “Kurt” Mahan specializes in antithrombotic therapy and venous thromboembolism (VTE) prevention.

VTE, which is a blood clot that starts in a vein, is the third leading vascular diagnosis after heart attack and stroke.

For his work, Mahan, who grew up in Clovis, has been awarded the 2019 Dorothy Dillon Award.

The award is granted to those who have made “significant contributions to health-system pharmacy in the form of sustained exemplary service in health-system pharmacy or a combination of accomplishments benefiting health-system pharmacy.”

The previous three recipients of the Dillon award select the current winner.
