Brown credits mentors and a doctorate from the College of Pharmacy on his distinguished career path. Brown’s advice to pharmacy students today is to create your own opportunities. “Think about how you can make things better than the way you found them,” he said. “It’s not always about the title, but the position that allows you to make a positive change for an organization.”
