Pharmacy Fusion (regularly scheduled) 7:20 PM
Are you among the millions of Americans choosing to focus your New Year's resolution on weight loss? In this special edition of Pharmacy Fusion, Interim Pharmacy Dean Tom Wadsworth welcomes Zach Rosko, PharmD, and Clinical Pharmacy Manager Ucheoma Nwizu for an in-depth discussion about weight management and weight loss drugs, including Ozempic, Tirzepatide, and others in the GLP-1 agonists class.
Capitol Fools 8:00 pm (start time follows ISU Athletics)
What happens when Washington, D.C.’s premiere, political satire group - the Capitol Steps - call it quits after nearly 40 years? Most folks would agree that it was a great run, and the story would end there. But an intrepid group of former Capitol Steps cast members and the former co-writer of the Capitol Steps would not go quietly into that good night. This band of fools reflected on a world without musical, political satire, and didn’t like what they saw. And just like that the Capitol Fools were born.
