“For me, this recognition validates the importance of mentorship and collaboration with students in academia,” Curtis said. “It reinforces the belief that investing time and energy into mentoring students not only benefits them individually but also contributes to the overall advancement of the field of pharmacy. This nomination inspires me to continue my efforts to provide guidance, resources and opportunities for students to explore and develop their interests, skills and aspirations in pharmacy.”

“Working with our Gator pharmacy students is such a privilege. Our students are so caring and dedicated to the pharmacy profession and their future patients,” Moorman Li said. “As students progress through the didactic program, faculty have a unique opportunity to provide mentorship and develop collaborative programs to help students explore the numerous careers available to them and help them develop the tools needed to successfully seek out these opportunities.”

Curtis and Moorman Li were among more than 25 nominees considered for the UF Career Center Career Influence Award in 2024. The nominees and award winners were recognized at the organization’s annual Faculty and Staff Career Symposium on April 26.
