Our Story

The National Academies of Practice (NAP) is composed of 10 Academies representing health care practice in the areas of Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Optometry, Osteopathic Medicine, Pharmacy, Podiatric Medicine, Psychology, Social Work, and Veterinary Medicine.  On March 24 in Arlington, Virginia, Dr. Michael Hogue of our McWhorter School of Pharmacy will be installed as a Distinguished Practitioner and Fellow in the NAP Pharmacy Academy.  As we congratulate Michael upon notification of this honor, we acknowledge the life-changing work of our faculty across the campus. 

   

The world is better because of Michael Hogue.
