    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Executive Director
    Ron Corey, PhD, MBA

    December 17, 2020, East Hanover, NJ – In the 35th annual presentation, the Pharmacy Leadership and Education Institute has named Jennifer L. Bacci, PharmD, MPH, BCACP, of Seattle, Washington, the 2021 recipient of the Albert B. Prescott Pharmacy Leadership Award. Dr. Bacci is recognized for her outstanding leadership example in the Academia-CPESN Transformation (ACT) Pharmacy Collaborative Task Force by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP), as a Flip the Pharmacy coach and as a network facilitator for Community Pharmacy Enhanced Services Network (CPESN) Washington.

    Dr. Bacci is also a nationally recognized researcher in implementation science and community pharmacy practice advancement. She trains the next generation of pharmacists through a high level of involvement in community residency training, mentoring students in research and teaching, and leadership contributions to UW School of Pharmacy’s curricular innovation. Dr. Bacci will receive her award and deliver a scholarly address during a webcast around the time of the APhA Annual Meeting in March 2021. Details of date, time, and access will be announced later.

    The Albert B. Prescott Pharmacy Leadership Award recognizes a pharmacist fewer than 10 years past graduation for demonstrating exemplary leadership qualities indicative of someone likely to emerge as a major leader in pharmacy over the course of his or her career. It evolved from an award first presented in 1987 by Phi Delta Chi to recognize leadership by a young pharmacist. It is currently coordinated by the Pharmacy Leadership & Education Institute (PLEI), with major support from the Phi Lambda Sigma Pharmacy Leadership Society. In conjunction with accepting the award, each recipient delivers a scholarly lecture on issues such as pharmacy as a profession, leadership, or future trends in pharmacy practice or education.

    The selection committee was comprised of PLEI Board Member Dennis Worthen, who served as Chair of the Committee; PLEI Board Members Michael Moné and Mike Heath; Phi Delta Chi President Andrea Bourque; Phi Lambda Sigma President Elect Michael Mueller, and by three of the last four winners of this prestigious award: Lindsay Kunkle, Robert Pugliese, and Afton Wagner.

    About Jennifer L. Bacci, PharmD, MPH, BCACP

    Dr. Bacci received her Doctor of Pharmacy at the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy in 2011, where she also completed a PGY-1 community pharmacy residency and post-doctoral fellowship in community practice research. She received her Master of Public Health at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health. In 2015, she joined the faculty of the University of Washington School of Pharmacy (UWSOP) in Seattle where she trains student pharmacists and collaborates with community pharmacy partners through practice development, research, and advocacy.

    Dr. Bacci established herself as a leader during her training serving as the PharmD representative to the Graduate and Professional Student Association and as a liaison to her university’s H1N1 response team. When pharmacists gained the authority to administer vaccines in Pennsylvania, Dr. Bacci volunteered and led the workflow redesign and staff training at her internship site within a high-volume regional supermarket chain.

    As a faculty member at the UWSOP, she has been heavily involved in the PharmD curriculum redesign effort, co-chairing the Fundamentals Work Group, a group of faculty and staff across three departments. She also serves as the faculty advisor to three registered student organizations, guiding the professional development of student and future leaders of the profession outside of the classroom. She was recently appointed to the University of Washington’s Population Health Initiative by University President, Dr. Ana Mari Cauce. In this role she joins an interdisciplinary group of faculty and public health advocates representing the diverse University community to guide this effort to advance the health of people globally and in her region.

    Dr. Bacci is respected as a leader of practice advancement within Washington state through her research program, which addresses the application of implementation science to advance innovative patient care models in community pharmacy practice. Her work has resulted in over 25 peer-reviewed publications at this early point in her career. But more importantly, her work has drawn the attention of community pharmacy leaders in Washington state and beyond. Dr. Bacci is regularly asked by community partners to advise and collaborate on their pharmacy practice models.

    About Albert B. Prescott

    Albert Prescott was Dean of Pharmacy at the University of Michigan from 1870 to 1905. A maverick, he was rebuffed by APhA for his heretical view that pharmacy should be an education-based profession – not an experienced-based trade. The credentials committee at the 1871 APhA convention rejected Prescott as unworthy of being seated as a voting delegate. But Prescott persevered. By the 1890s, Prescott’s vision and convictions were proven correct. The rest of the country began to follow Prescott’s lead. Ironically, he was eventually elected president of APhA in 1899, and became the first president of the organization we now know as the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP), when it was founded in 1900.

    Join us in welcoming our new student intern, Leigh Fleming Joyner! Leigh is a third year pharmacy student at the University of South Carolina College of Pharmacy and is the President of the Phi Lambda Sigma Zeta Chapter. 

    A Message From Leigh: 

    My name is Leigh Fleming Joyner, and I am so excited to serve as the Phi Lambda Sigma student intern. I grew up on a family farm in Manning, SC and I currently live in Lexington, SC with my husband, our dog, Lola, and our two cats, Mister and Storm. I completed 3 years of undergraduate school at Charleston Southern University in Charleston, SC before transferring to the University of South Carolina for pharmacy school. I am currently a P3 student, the Zeta chapter president of Phi Lambda Sigma as well as a South Carolina Pharmacy Association Junior Board Member. I am also involved in Omicron Delta Kappa, Student National Pharmaceutical Association, Alpha Delta Pi Sorority, Phi Delta Chi Professional Pharmacy Fraternity, Pediatric Pharmacy Association and Student Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists. I am interested in pursuing a residency or a fellowship after graduation, but I am not yet sure of which field of pharmacy I want to pursue. Non-traditional pharmacy roles are currently the most appealing to me, but I am hopeful that my P4 rotations will help me find my niche. 

    When I get a break from studying, I love to spend my time being creative. I have numerous hobbies, but digital art, photography, and writing are what I enjoy most. I love learning new things and problem-solving. I am looking forward to sharing these talents and hobbies with Phi Lambda Sigma as their student intern and I cannot wait to serve the organization through this role.

    Phi Lambda Sigma, the Pharmacy Leadership Society, has announced that Brandon Jennings, PharmD, BCACP has been named the Society’s next Executive Director after longtime Executive Director, Mary Euler, PharmD, FAPhA stepped down on June 30, 2020.  The Society has entered into a contract with Abilyn Consulting, LLC for Dr. Jennings’ services. His tenure begins on July 1, 2020.

    Dr. Jennings has spent over 14 years in the pharmacy education and health care environments.  Serving as a clinical faculty member at both the University of Utah College of Pharmacy and Shenandoah University School of Pharmacy, Dr. Jennings helped to establish collaborative relationships between community partners and the University.  In his current role as founder and President/CEO of Abilyn Consulting, LLC, Dr. Jennings collaborates with organizations to build stronger teams, improve operational efficiencies and establish realistic strategic goals. 

    Dr. Jennings has been involved with Phi Lambda Sigma on the national level since being elected President-Elect in 2013 and serving as President the following year. He has also served as National Finance Committee Chairperson following his year as Immediate Past-President and most recently as National Treasurer since 2017. Additionally, he served as chapter advisor to the collegiate chapters at both institutions where he was on faculty.

    When asked about his appointment to be the new Executive Director of Phi Lambda Sigma, Dr. Jennings commented, “It is truly an honor to be selected for this role.  I have so much respect for Dr. Euler and all of her hard work over the last 20+ years.  I hope that I can continue her legacy and continue to lay the foundation each day for the National Executive Committee and the chapters to be successful and grow.  We continue to be at an interesting crossroads within the profession and the country as whole.  Developing the next generation of leaders is something that I value greatly, and I know the Society does as well.  I want to thank the National Executive Committee for selecting me to serve in this role and I am looking forward to our continued collaboration!” 

    National Phi Lambda Sigma President, Jordan Ballou, PharmD, BCACP commented, “Dr. Jennings’ previous service with the Society made him a perfect fit for this role. In his role as Treasurer for the past several years, he has worked closely with Dr. Euler and it seemed like a natural transition when she announced her intentions to step down. His career experiences bring a great deal to the National Executive Committee as we continue to grow as an organization and establish ourselves as the premiere leadership society in pharmacy.”

    Dr. Jennings will work closely with the elected officers and appointed positions in order to fulfill the mission of the organization which since 1965 has been to develop leadership qualities among pharmacy students and pharmacists and to recognize leaders in the profession.  The elected offices within the National Executive Committee also includes President: Jordan Ballou, PharmD, BCACP (University of Mississippi); President-Elect: Michael Mueller, PhD (LECOM – Bradenton Campus); Speaker of the House: Alakai Montalbo, PharmD Candidate (Idaho State University); Members-at-Large: Rashid Abdoh, PharmD Candidate (Texas A&M University) and Kira Voyer, PharmD Candidate (University of Buffalo).  Other appointed officers and staff members include Associate Executive Director: Mary Euler, PharmD, FAPhA (West Virginia University); Director of Professional Development: Katelyn Shatz, PharmD, MBA, BCPS (Bay Pines VA Healthcare System, St. Petersburg, FL); Parliamentarian: Anthony Declue, PharmD (Medical University of South Carolina); and Treasurer: Jaclyn Cole, PharmD, BCPS (University of South Florida).

    Mary Euler, PharmD, FAPhA, formally stepped down as the Executive Director of Phi Lambda Sigma, the Pharmacy Leadership Society, on June 30, 2020.  Dr. Euler had served in this role since the Spring of 1999 and has guided the organization through tremendous growth during her tenure.

    Incoming Executive Director, Brandon Jennings, PharmD, BCACP, who has worked with Mary on the National Executive Committee for the past 7 years commented, “Mary is such an amazing leader and role model for me and so many pharmacists in our profession.  She has had a strong commitment to the Society and helping it to grow over the last 20+ years. It brings me such pleasure to know that we are continuing to work to make her dreams for the Society come true, like a stand-alone Annual Meeting.  Whether she is in a formal role with the Society or not, Dr. Euler will continue to have an influence on Phi Lambda Sigma and the Profession of Pharmacy!”

    Following the virtual 45th House of Delegates on April 19, 2020, Dr. Euler was honored during the awards ceremony with a speech by friend, colleague, and former PLS treasurer, Alan Spies, RPh, JD, MBA, PhD:

    "When I look to a leader, especially one who has served an organization for the duration Mary has, I ask myself 2 questions regarding that leader:

    1.  Who, if any, is following the leader?

    1. Is the organization better, worse or the same now than when the leader first assumed the role?

    In answering these questions for Dr. Mary Euler and her time as Executive Director of Phi Lambda Sigma, it becomes very apparent that Mary's legacy will live on for generations to come.  What a gift she is to PLS and to our profession!

    First, it is impossible to quantify Mary's influence and impact on our profession but let's make an attempt.  If we look at merely PLS initiates during her 20+ years as Executive Director, the number exceeds 20,000 new members to the organization.  Given Mary's influence beyond PLS, these numbers are easily doubled as Mary replicates leaders.  Who is following Mary?  Tens of thousands of people, including me.

    These numbers do not even begin to capture the person Mary Euler is to all she meets.  Her selfless nature and love for seeing others thrive inspires all.  Dr. Euler invests in people and does so because she loves to do it!  Mary cannot be replaced for her love of PLS and our profession remains as strong today as when she first took the reins some 20 years ago.  Thank you Mary for never losing the passion to serve.

    My favorite leadership quote is such a depiction of Mary and who she is:

    "If you want to build a ship, don't drum up men to gather wood, divide the work and give orders. Instead teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea." - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

    Thank you Mary for teaching me and so many others to yearn for the vast and endless sea."


    Dr. Euler has agreed to continue to support the Society as Associate Executive Director and she will continue to be a valuable resource for all elected and appointed positions. She starts in that role immediately.

    Phi Lambda Sigma was established in 1965 to develop leadership qualities among pharmacy students and pharmacists and to recognize leaders in the profession.  The elected offices within the National Executive Committee also includes President: Jordan Ballou, PharmD, BCACP (University of Mississippi); President-Elect: Michael Mueller, PhD (LECOM – Bradenton Campus); Speaker of the House: Alakai Montalbo, PharmD Candidate (Idaho State University); Members-at-Large: Rashid Abdoh, PharmD Candidate (Texas A&M University) and Kira Voyer, PharmD Candidate (University of Buffalo).  Appointed officers and staff members include Executive Director: Brandon Jennings, PharmD, BCACP (Abilyn Consulting, LLC, Winchester, VA); Associate Executive Director: Mary Euler, PharmD, FAPhA (West Virginia University); Director of Professional Development: Katelyn Shatz, PharmD, MBA, BCPS (Bay Pines VA Healthcare System, St. Petersburg, FL); Parliamentarian: Anthony Declue, PharmD (Medical University of South Carolina); and Treasurer: Jaclyn Cole, PharmD, BCPS (University of South Florida).
