With several new and exciting events on the schedule, the School of Pharmacy’s annual Pharmacy Alumni Weekend will be held April 15-16 in Oxford.

Pharmacy alumni from the classes of 1956, 1966, 1976, 1986, 1991, 1996 and 2006 (Pharm.D.) will be celebrated this year.

“I’m particularly excited about this year’s Pharmacy Weekend,” said David D. Allen, the school’s dean. “We have some fun things planned. Most importantly, I’m looking forward to the opportunity to reconnect with our alumni – it’s one of my favorite times of the year.”

The weekend will begin with the annual School of Pharmacy Scholarship Golf Tournament on Friday morning at 11 a.m. at the Ole Miss Golf Course.

This year, the golf tournament will be part of the Liberty Mutual Insurance Alumni Cup. Dixon Golf will be on the course for an added competition. The tournament’s proceeds support the Pharmacy Alumni Chapter Scholarship, which was fully endowed in 2012.

The Dean’s Reception will begin at 6 p.m. at Bryant Hall, hosted by Allen and his wife, Loree, and sponsored by Bob Broadus.

A special recognition breakfast honoring the 50- and 60-year classes will be held on Saturday morning at the Triplett Alumni Center. A continuing education program will immediately follow breakfast.

This year, a cookout at 12:30 p.m. will allow alumni and friends to gather at the Thad Cochran Research Center and enjoy catering from Taylor Grocery.

“The new Pharmacy Weekend cookout will allow alumni to reconnect and afford them the opportunity to see pharmacy buildings that are either brand new or newly renovated,” said School of Pharmacy alumni officer Scott Thompson. “The cookout, like all Pharmacy Weekend events, is open to all School of Pharmacy alumni and friends, not just those celebrating reunions.”

Following the cookout, there will be a facilities tour, which will showcase the school’s new research building, skills training laboratory and more.

To close out the weekend, the Pharmacy Awards Banquet and Class Reunion Dinner will be held at 6 p.m. at the Gertrude C. Ford Ballroom at The Inn at Ole Miss. The evening will honor all reunion classes and the 2016 Distinguished Alumnus of the Year, Todd Sandroni (BSPh 92, PharmD 97).
