Honorees will be officially recognized at the APhA Annual Meeting & Exposition in San Antonio, Texas, March 18-21, 2022.
The APhA Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA–ASP) awarded Michael B. Doherty, PharmD, the Linwood F. Tice Friend Award. Doherty is an associate professor and director of experiential learning at the James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy at the University of Cincinnati.
Formerly known as the "APhA Friend of ASP Award," this award was established in 1988 to recognize an individual whose long-term services and contributions have benefited theAPhA–ASP, and thereby, student pharmacists in general. The award was renamed in 1994 to honor Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science Dean Emeritus and APhA Past President Dr. Linwood F. Tice who, in his capacity as Chairman of the APhA Committee on Student Branches in 1952–55, was instrumental in the formation of the APhA organizational unit that evolved into APhA–ASP
The APhA Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA–ASP) represents student pharmacists at every school and college of pharmacy in the United States and Puerto Rico. The mission of APhA–ASP is to be the collective voice of student pharmacists, to provide opportunities for professional growth, to improve patient care, and to envision and advance the future of pharmacy.
