Samford University’s McWhorter School of Pharmacy:
A career in pharmacy is a natural fit for students who have a love of science and a passion for caring for others. With COVID-19, pharmacists not only served on the frontlines—being one of the most accessible health care professionals to the community—but they now play a critical role in the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines. As the profession continues to make headlines, you may have students ask you: Is pharmacy right for me?
