College of the Redwoods to offer pharmacy technician program

A longtime local pharmacist will help others break into a growing profession when he teaches a pharmacy technician course this fall at College of the Redwoods.

“I’ve had a lot of experience in teaching students on the job site and this is a way to do it in the classroom,” said Ken Robinson, a licensed California pharmacist who has a Doctor of Pharmacy degree from Washington State University. He is currently a staff pharmacist at Mad River Community Hospital and has also held pharmacist positions at Humboldt State University, St. Joseph Hospital and many other locations.
