Leader of the pack: Dog groomer turned UH pharmacy professor honored

HOUSTON, March 28, 2007 After building a successful dog grooming business, a University of Houston pharmacy educator has earned national honors for grooming the next generation of pharmacy professionals.

Lynn Simpson, a clinical associate professor and executive vice chair of pharmacy practice at the UH College of Pharmacy, received the American Pharmacists Association-Academy of Student Pharmacists' 2007 Outstanding Chapter Advisor Award at the organization's annual meeting March 19. UH is only the second college to have two faculty members among the award winners since the honor was created in 1988 by APhA-ASP. Shara Zatopek, UH College of Pharmacy associate dean for administration and clinical associate professor, received the award in 1995.

"Although I'm honored to receive this award, I really believe it's the students who deserve it," Simpson said. "Our students are amazing. Not only are they dedicated to the pharmacy profession and each have enormous leadership potential, but they all have a great sense of humor and let you share in their personal experiences."

Simpson was singled out for her spirit, energy and impact on students during her 10 years as a UH faculty member and adviser for the student chapter. Through her support and encouragement, eight UH pharmacy students have held regional or national leadership posts in APhA-ASP and two students have won the organization's National Patient Counseling Competition, marking the first time a college has won consecutive first-place titles in the event.

"Dr. Simpson is always ready to offer guidance and suggestions, while insisting that we make our own decisions," said Jon Arends, president of the UH chapter of APhA-ASP that nominated Simpson for the award. "Her dedication to patient counseling is unparalleled, and she challenges students to continually work on our skills for the ultimate benefit of the patient."
