Dr. George Okpamen is a graduate of Texas Southern University College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences. He has been a member of SNPhA since his pre-pharmacy days at the University of Houston, where he was initiated into the Eta Mu Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated. George has had the unique privilege of serving SNPhA on the national scene for the last four years – starting as a Regional Conference Host, being elected the National Vice-President, appointed the first ever Executive Chairman, and now one of two Executive Consultants.
Currently, George is living in Indianapolis, Indiana where he is a Visiting Scientist Fellow for Eli Lilly and Company. When he is not working or serving George enjoys exploring his new city and making plans to travel and explore other cities both in and outside of the United States.
This year George’s goals fall squarely on nurturing, mentoring, and supporting the leadership of both SNPhA and NPhA. In taking an internal look and pledge to stabilize the foundation of both organizations, each prepares and expects to solidify the future of their respective communities, the pharmacy profession, and our healthcare as a whole.
