Pharmacist, veteran, entrepreneur, philanthropist: George D. Behrakis personifies the Northeastern success story
His name is familiar to every student who enters the Behrakis Health Science Center, which for two decades has served as a leading facility in its discipline.
It is named after George D. Behrakis, the Bouvé College of Health Sciences graduate whose groundbreaking career as an entrepreneur and philanthropist was launched by his 1957 Northeastern degree in pharmacy.
Behrakis personifies the Northeastern success story, said Carmen Sceppa, the Bouvé dean. His is a story of seized opportunities—and a crucial turning point that followed his Northeastern graduation in the era of the Vietnam War.
