Throughout the year, the UF College of Pharmacy has activities and events planned to celebrate our various communities within the college, while embracing diverse perspectives, backgrounds, ideas and approaches.
We celebrate Black History Month to recognize the sacrifices, contributions and achievements of African-Americans to the United States and the world. In 2021, we wanted to share the perspectives of Black students, faculty, staff and alumni, as they "Celebrate Excellence" in the UF College of Pharmacy community.
Blacks pharmacists have made great strides in health care since the turn of the 20th century. Early pioneers in the profession like Anna Louise James and Ella Nora Phillips have paved the way for generations of Black pharmacists to come, including hundreds of UF College of Pharmacy alumni and students.
