Message from the Dean

Who can believe it's October already? As fall is officially upon us, it is important to acknowledge October as American Pharmacists Month, and make a cheer to all of the great pharmacists out there who have touched or been touched by interactions with the College of Pharmacy, either as former or current students, faculty members, residents or fellows. We are so proud of all that each of them do, in many different ways, to make people's lives better.

To help ensure we continue to have the best and brightest in our student body for the future of pharmacy, I hope you will consider giving to the Crisafi Challenge, if you haven’t already. Interrupted for the second year in a row by a hurricane, we remain undaunted in our quest to raise scholarship funds for our incoming students. I hope you have a chance to check out (and be inspired by) the stories of our Crisafi Scholars.

This month also highlights the great things that our students are doing, with students and postdocs pulling in awards at five different national and international meetings. You make us proud!

And if you have an hour to spare, check out the fascinating video of the panel discussion on the use of psychedelics to treat various psychiatric disorders, in which Lance McMahon participated.

Finally, the University of Florida's capital campaign kick-off event will take place Friday, Oct. 13, at 7:30 p.m. in the O’Connell Center. Tickets are free and it promises to be a fun and inspiring evening.

As always, continue to Pursue Greatness.
