APhA Foundation Announces 2020-2021 Executive Fellow
Published: Friday, February 21, 2020
The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) Foundation has named John Little the 2020-2021 Knowlton Center Executive Fellow in Association Management and Leadership.
Formerly known as the Executive Residency, this program was created by The Calvin and Orsula Knowlton Foundation through the Center for Pharmacist-Based Health Solutions. Although Little will be considered the first Executive Fellow, the program's aim remains unchanged: to prepare the next generation of leaders in the pharmacy profession.
Little will begin the year-long fellowship in June at the APhA Foundation headquarters in Washington, D.C.
"We are proud that he was selected for the APhA fellowship," said JoLaine R. Draugalis, dean at OU College of Pharmacy. "I believe this is a pivotal step in his career and know this program will help him achieve his professional development goals."
Little will receive his PharmD from the University of Oklahoma College of Pharmacy and graduate with a leadership degree option.
"I am eager to commit this year to learning," Little said. "I look forward to working with the dedicated individuals at the APhA Foundation and contributing to their efforts to improve patient care."
As a student pharmacist, Little served as class president for four years, student council president, and president of the APhA-ASP Chapter. In his final year, Little and his team won the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) Student Business Plan Competition by developing a unique strategy around infusion pharmacotherapy.
