Faces of Pharmacy 

 What does MPhA do for you?

"MPhA is a great organization and I have really enjoyed getting involved since being in pharmacy school. I’ve learned a lot about how MPhA advocates on behalf of pharmacists while serving on the Governmental Affairs committee and attending various events at the Capitol such as Capitol Day and giving flu shots. I think it’s great that they promote involvement within the organization even while we are still students; I think it encourages us to stay involved after we graduate."       


-Chephra McKee, PharmD. Candidate, 2013, Corinth

"I love MPhA because I feel that this organization represents every pharmacist throughout the state of Mississippi.  I have been fortunate enough to see the evolution of this organization to the status it now enjoys.  I feel that continued support from practitioners will see growth in the role of pharmacists for years to come."


-Pearl E. Wales, RPh, Pharm.D, G.V. "Sonny" Montgomery V.A. Medical Center, Canton

-Logan Davis, Director of Clinical Services, Vital Care of Meridian

"MPhA is a way to guide the future of our profession in Mississippi.  Our actions in this organization have a direct impact upon the practice of pharmacy in Mississippi."

-Christine Cline-Dahlman, CPhT, The Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children

Rep._Read.JPG"As a legislator and pharmacist I have been a conduit between reality and the law, as it pertains to pharmacy. And in my 20+ years with MPhA, the association has allowed me to meet pharmacists from all fields and has been a good sounding board for me as a pharmacist legislator."

-Rep. John Read, RPh., Fred's Pharmacy, Gautier, MS


"Being a student member of MPhA has provided many opportunities for me to meet potential employers from various practice settings. These were valuable opportunities I would not have had otherwise."

-Josh Bell, UM PY4 student

Kristi_Phelps.jpg"I love the fellowship I get with other pharmacists during MPhA's various seminars offered throughout the year. I also love to be involved with the MPhA's committees. It is a great way to see what your state association does for you and have your voice heard. I encourage everyone to consider being a part of one."

-Kristi Phelps, Fred's Pharmacy, Gautier

“I love MPhA for the networking opportunities with pharmacists and other healthcare providers.  MPhA keeps us informed and connected Rhonda_Dunaway.jpgwith other pharmacists as we wage war for our professional survival.  There are many opportunities for us to serve our profession by getting involved in MPhA.”
