OXFORD, Miss. – Seena Haines and Kayla Stover, two University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy faculty members, were inducted as 2017 Fellows of the American College of Clinical Pharmacy at the organization’s annual meeting on Oct. 8 in Phoenix, Arizona.
The ACCP is devoted to the advancement of clinical pharmacy, which focuses on the science and practice of medication use. Fellowship in the ACCP honors those with a history of exemplary service and achievement in the pharmacy profession for at least 10 years.
“We are fortunate to have two great leaders in Seena and Kayla,” said David D. Allen, dean of the School of Pharmacy. “They have done exceptional work for our school and the profession, and they are very deserving of this honor.”
Haines serves as chair and professor of pharmacy practice. Prior to joining the UM School of Pharmacy in 2016, she was in various roles at Palm Beach Atlantic University for 15 years, including being named senior associate dean for faculty. Haines received a bachelor’s degree in dietetics and nutrition from Florida International University prior to earning her Pharm.D. in 2000 and completing a special residency in ambulatory care at Nova Southeastern University.
“It is truly an honor to be inducted as a Fellow of the American College of Clinical Pharmacy,” Haines said. “I greatly value the opportunity to have served the organization over the last decade in support of student and resident growth and development, clinical practice advancement and practice-based research.”
Stover was appointed to her current role as associate professor of pharmacy practice for the School of Pharmacy in 2015. She also serves as residency program director for PGY-2 Infectious Diseases, a residency program she herself completed at UMMC. A 2007 graduate of Ohio Northern University, Stover shares rounding duties on the Adult Infectious Diseases Consult team while providing other administrative duties to the School of Pharmacy and UMMC.
“I feel like I have been looking up to Fellows of the American College of Clinical Pharmacy for years,” Stover said. “I am honored to have been named to this special group.”
