Eight Pharmacy Students Earn Leadership Training Certificates
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.
