“We are grateful for our teachers, we are proud of how hard they work with our children and at Nephron, and we hope other companies across S.C. will join us in supporting them in and out of the classroom,” said Nephron Pharmaceuticals Company CEO Lou Kennedy.
Nephron announced the educator program earlier this year. The mission of the program is to provide secondary income to educators as they help Nephron fill and complete orders.
Educators are focused specifically on the Nephron 503B outsourcing division which services U.S. hospitals and surgery centers with drug shortage needs.  Nephron is able to complete orders faster with the support of these teachers and administrators.
