Congratulations to Dr. Sarah McBane, Chair of the Department of Pharmacy Practice, for being awarded Pharmacist of the Year by the California Pharmacists Association! This award recognizes the outstanding efforts of pharmacy leaders within the profession.

She continues to be a leader pushing the profession to the vanguard, particularly in the area of developing innovative practice models that focus on interdisciplinary teams. PharmD students and faculty have benefitted tremendously from Dr. McBane’s leadership as she continues to influence, inspire, and mentor the next generation of pharmacy leaders.
