Gina Prescott, PharmD, clinical associate professor of pharmacy practice, and Nicholas Fusco, PharmD, clinical associate professor and vice chair of pharmacy practice, have both been named as Fellows of the American College of Clinical Pharmacy (ACCP).
Fellowship in the American College of Clinical Pharmacy (FCCP) recognizes excellence in the practice and science of clinical pharmacy and is awarded to individuals who have made significant contributions to ACCP and who have demonstrated exceptional performance in clinical pharmacy practice or research.
Prescott has been a member of ACCP since 2003. Her teaching and scholarship are dedicated to global health, refugee health/underserved patient care and education. “I am honored to be selected as an ACCP fellow for my commitment to advancing clinical pharmacy practice globally and through educational initiatives,” says Prescott. “I look forward to strengthening my commitment to health equity in pharmacy through ACCP initiatives.”
Fusco has been a member of ACCP since 2010. He teaches in acute care pediatrics and his scholarship focuses on the areas of pediatric infectious diseases and interprofessional education. “[ACCP] seeks to advance pharmacy through practice and research and to be recognized as demonstrating excellence in those areas is a tremendous honor,” says Fusco. “It’s a wonderful recognition both individually and for our school. It symbolizes the good work that’s being done here and moving forward will help connect us with others that are also seeking to achieve excellence in the areas of practice and research.”
William Prescott Jr., PharmD, chair and clinical professor, Department of Pharmacy Practice, acknowledges the significance of Prescott and Fusco receiving ACCP fellowship designation. “Fellowship in ACCP is the highest honor this organization can bestow on its members,” says Prescott Jr. “Dr. Prescott and Dr. Fusco have established national prominence in global health and pediatrics, respectively, and this is recognition of that. They are exceptional clinicians, researchers, and educators, and our school is very fortunate to have them both on our faculty.”
ACCP’s mission is to improve human health by extending the frontiers of clinical pharmacy through strategic initiatives, partnerships, collaborations and alliances.
