    culture of my family This year at an eldercare facility in Seattle s International District I conducted educational programs through the UW s School of Pharmacy I counseled people about their prescriptions and reviewed medications to prevent dangerous interactions and evaluated how they were working Planning and implementing these programs getting other students involved and using my skills to serve the community that s the fun stuff I know the Brackens are successful pharmaceutical entrepreneurs who achieved leadership roles in this state That s inspiring to me I hope my work can contribute to the field as theirs did They are role models and their scholarship helped turn my dreams into reality It allows me to focus more on learning and participating in organizations and events that are helping me develop and grow as a pharmacist Inventing a household name Blistex creator s family expands legacy with Pharmacy scholarship In the 1930s a group of doctors in downtown Seattle asked the pharmacist in their building for an ointment to treat patients with shingles a painful rash caused by the herpes zoster virus The pharmacist Louis L D Bracken had attended the UW College of Pharmacy and was well respected He had a reputation for compounding mixing ingredients to create medicines tailored for individual patients and had created ointments for bee stings and dandruff But it was during his quest to treat herpes zoster that he compounded an ointment that effectively treated another type of herpes the kind that causes cold sores L D named his ointment Blistex and it would become his legacy both at the UW and in the world L D was forward thinking says John L Bracken L D s grandson But I don t think he ever imagined Blistex would have grown to where it is today At first L D packaged Blistex in small glass jars for the doctors in his building and his own patients Soon other local pharmacies and drug wholesalers wanted to carry it L D decided that for larger distribution Blistex would need to be sold in tubes This manufacturing decision and an astute tube salesman from Illinois named Charlie Arch would seal the fate of Blistex John tells the story this way After a few years of watching Blistex tube sales go way up Charlie told L D Hey these things are selling like hotcakes I think you ve got something here Why don t you quit being a pharmacist Let s build a business in Illinois But L D wasn t interested in going to Illinois to be a businessman He was a pharmacist and Seattle was his home If Charlie wanted to start a business to sell Blistex though L D was behind him Charlie with L D as a partner in Seattle spearheaded the formation of a Blistex Inc and incorporated the company on June 5 1947 in Illinois While L D participated in Blistex company decisions he remained true to his first passion taking care of
