Eight students in Samford University’s McWhorter School of Pharmacy earned national Leadership Training Certificates from the American Pharmacists Association Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP).
The students are Hayley Graham, Mobile, Ala.; Erin Gibbs, Selma, Ala.; Autumn Bagwell, Clarksville, Tenn.; Kristen Phillips, Auburn, Ala.; Maggee Oliver, Albertville, Ala.; Lauren Garrett, Trussville, Ala.; Christian Conley, Oviedo, Fla.; and Jessica Collins, Helena, Ala.
Each of the students completed a four-part series of activities at APhA training sessions over four years to develop their leadership potential in the field of pharmacy. They will receive their certificates at the first APhA-ASP meeting in the fall of 2011.
“Completion of the program is a testament of the dedication each of these students has toward becoming outstanding leaders for the pharmacy profession,” said Dee Dugan, assistant professor of pharmacy and co-advisor of the Samford APhA-ASP chapter.
