Giving 2017 - 2018
Howard University College of Pharmacy strives to be a premier College in teaching, learning, research, leadership, and service locally and globally..
Greetings, hope this report finds you well. As I begin my 3rd year at the College and reflect on the work done by our student, faculty, alumni, Board of Visitors and staff, it has been a very busy year. We had some new faculty join us this year and several of our students achieved several awards and leadership positions in notable pharmacy organizations. We are particularly excited about the 5-year strategic plan executed in January of 2018, key partnerships secured locally, nationally and internationally, >93% graduation rate, >85% jobs secured with class of 2018, increased NTDP enrollment by 67%, improvement in residency match rate from 39% to 67% and increase in donor giving by 23.4% over the last FY. Our college also had a strong AACP presence this year with 6 faculty presentations, 8 posters, 1 task force lead and 2 officers.
Message From The Dean
In addition, the College:
Hosted a very successful interdisciplinary Policy Symposium highlighting the Opioid Use Disorders. Featured on the Rock Newman show.
Launched a one of a Kind FDA-GLAXO-HUCOP fellowship in July 2018.
Collaborated with University of Wyoming on Innovative leadership grant from NACDS.
Launched a fellowship/residency program in collaboration with Trusted Health Plan.
Hosted Alumni receptions at ASHP, APhA, SNPHA and a faculty reception at AACP.
Howard was chosen to host the SNPHA Regional Conference in 2019.
All of this would not have been possible without the dedication of the faculty, staff, students, board of visitors, sponsors and alumni of the College. While the college continues to be very productive as shown on the next pages, there is still so much more to be done. I am committed to focusing on working together to advance our main goals to:
Increase US presence and reputation

HUCOP Students Make History In D.C and
THEY'RE NOT DONE YET!
During the month of October 2017, Howard University College of Pharmacy students joined other public health advocates such as Unity Health Care, Kaiser Permanente, Community of Hope and many more to create a letter-writing campaign that would increase local awareness of the expanded roles of pharmacists and ways in which they could help improve patient care through a Collaborative Practice Agreement (CPA) between Pharmacists and Physicians.
in 2012, the District of Columbia signed a law approving CPA between Pharmacists and Physicians. This was a superb opportunity for pharmacy practice expansion in the District of Columbia. Unfortunately, without any rules in place, DC pharmacists who practiced outside of the federal agencies have not been able to put this law into practice.
Now 5 years later, Mr. Patrick Fotso (Third-year Pharmacy Student and APhA-ASP President) and other student leaders sprang into action by creating an effective letter-writing campaign. Over 300 signatures indicating support and expediting of the regulations for CPA were submitted to the Board of Pharmacy. Ten months later, the Collaborative Practice Agreement Regulations have been published and are effective as of August 17th, 2018. This is such an exciting news as we know our DC patients would have more access to healthcare.
Students to Switch Places for Unique
Howard University College of Pharmacy (HUCOP) in collaboration with the University of Wyoming School of Pharmacy (UW-SOP) are offering an exciting exchange experience for our pharmacy students. The Health Equity Leadership Program is a partnership between the two schools funded by the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) Foundation Scholarship Program; one of 6 merit-based awards funding patient-centered, community-based coursework or other curriculum innovations.
This leadership program is a 9-month experience which will include biweekly video conferencing between students in the two campuses and a week visit in the respective states to experience first-hand the differences between rural and inner-city healthcare systems. As cited in the “Pharmacy Times”, this unique experience is designed to expose each group of students to the unique challenges, methods, and rewards of working in health care settings that are extremely rural or urban.
The faculty leads from both institutions, Dr. Estela Lajthia (HUCOP) and Dr. Michelle Hilaire (UW-SOP), along with Deans Tofade and Krueger have selected 8 students after a rigorous application process. The four students that will be the pioneers in this experience and will have the opportunity to represent HUCOP are: Hadiya Strong (P1); Nkiruka Emezienna (P2); Zulikhat Segunmaru (P2); Jessica Lyons (P3).

HUCOP STEM and Healthcare Professions
After Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Derrick was welcomed again to Bison family as an emergency transfer from Dillards University. As he recalls: “The semester was a very difficult time, but Howard did their best to make us feel welcome during the displacement.” Howard truly became a second home for Derrick, and in winter of 2006, Derrick was offered an opportunity to return to the University of Nebraska- Lincoln to continue undergraduate research and matriculation. Upon graduation in 2008, Derrick relocated to Houston, Texas and served the Houston Independent School District for six years. While there he was a biology teacher for Westside high school initially and assisted in piloting a program targeting at-risk middle school students and aiding them in their transition to high school. As he recalls: “The program had 120 students and they all had the same for core curriculum teachers so we could keep a close watch on their performance and add additional support and resources where needed.” After two years, Derrick transferred to Bellaire high school where he worked as a graduation coach. There, the student graduation rate was very low so the institution established an online community within the school for students to begin taking classes virtually. Derrick ran this program and worked with the academic counselors and assistant principals to ensure that the students had options and made it to graduation. His team's efforts included going out into the neighborhoods and tracking down drop-out students and helping them re-enroll into school and finish their program. The program was also utilized to give struggling students an opportunity to stay on track and graduate “ontime” or ahead of schedule if desired. In Derricks own recollection: “It was a very rewarding experience.”
In 2014 Derrick accepted the offer to return to the Howard University College of Pharmacy as a first-year student. Upon his arrival Derrick immediately reconnected and re-engaged with the Center or Excellence pipeline program that first nurtured his interest in health care. Throughout his 4 year tenure at the college, he participated in every programmatic offering and graciously offered mentorship to all the high school and professional students who came through the program. “He volunteered even without being asked” reflected one of the program staff. Overall, Derrick was a model of excellence in leadership and service. He was a tireless advocate for the many of the other college’s initiatives including curriculum development, student welfare, and student academic support. Even as he graduates, Derrick has already volunteered to return as an ex-offico member of curriculum committee to continue to provide valuable feedback to the college. Derrick’s story is really a model of the success of our pipeline programs at Howard; specifically, its ability to inspire students to return and given back to the pipeline. The College is truly proud of Derrick’s accomplishments. In Derrick’s own closing words “The past four years have truly been a stressfully rewarding experience, but it was great to be back in an institution that has been a second home to me over 15 years.”
From Pipeline to PharmD
In Spring of 2003, Derrick Anderson was accepted into the Howard University Center of Excellence Academic Enrichment program. At 17 years of age, Derrick demonstrated a high level of engagement and enthusiasm and immersed himself fully in all programmatic offerings. In his words: “I felt this was an important opportunity that would help prepare me for my future in healthcare and I was right!” After completing the program that summer, Derrick left the program energized and continued to remain in touch with the program’s faculty and staff-many of who still recall his early years at Howard with great fondness.
