Frenzel receives the Peltier Award, which was established by Joseph and Norma Peltier to recognize outstanding innovation in teaching.

Donald Miller, chair of pharmacy practice, wrote Frenzel is the coordinator for the Thrifty White Concept Lab, a licensed pharmacy to teach students through the curriculum. "Dr. Frenzel is a master at coordinating the multiple activities going on in each lab section," he said. "She has excelled in continuously developing innovative educational activities for the lab."

Frenzel and her colleagues obtained a grant from the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy/American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy to purchase electronic medical record software. Miller said Frenzel uses online video clips via Blackboard where pharmacy students were filmed asking for self-care recommendations for over-the-counter products. In addition, she also has used podcasts in her teaching.

"Dr. Frenzel's work has created a more realistic practice through the leadership, design and development of laboratory activities to bridge the gap between didactic lecture and pharmacy practice," wrote Rebecca Focken, Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experience director and assistant professor of pharmacy practice.

Frenzel also was named 2008 North Dakota Distinguished Young Pharmacist.
