These three distinguished individuals have served the School of Pharmacy, our profession and our communities in so many ways, said Dean Barbara G. Wells.
They serve as examples to our students, and they inspire us. We are blessed to have them in our profession. Our profession is better because of them, and we are better people because of our association with them.
Recipients of the award are selected based on professional accomplishments and service to the School of Pharmacy, students, faculty, staff and alumni.
