Stephen Turner and Beth Hager, graduates of the College of Pharmacy program on the Duluth campus are now clinical pharmacists at the Min No Aya Win Clinic in Cloquet, Minnesota, are featured in a video highlighting their work at the clinic.

Unlike a typical community pharmacy, the Min No Aya Win clinic offers three private counseling rooms in which a patient can go over their medications with a pharmacist. “A patient feels comfortable in that setting,” Turner said. “Whatever they’ve got going on, they can talk about. Likewise, it’s a very comforting atmosphere to practice.”

The Min No Aya Win Clinic, located on the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Reservation in Cloquet, also serves as one of many advanced practice rotation sites for pharmacy students. Fourth-year pharmacy students are required to do nine, five-week rotations as part of the curriculum.
