Koda-Kimble to receive pharmacy’s highest honor

UCSF School of Pharmacy Dean Mary Anne Koda-Kimble, PharmD, will receive the 2010 Remington Honor Medal from the American Pharmacists Association (APhA) on March 13, 2010, at APhA’s annual meeting in Washington, DC. The medal is the profession’s highest honor.

Koda-Kimble, who is a leader in the innovation and continual advancement of pharmacy education and practice, was among a growing group of pioneers who changed the practice from one of dispensing to one that took responsibility for the overall safe and effective use of medications and the direct pharmaceutical care of patients. To teach the concept in the classroom, Koda-Kimble and Lloyd Young, PharmD, led the development of the first pharmacy school textbook on clinical therapeutics, which was first printed in 1975.

Koda-Kimble is a 1969 alumnus of the UCSF School of Pharmacy and has been a member of the faculty since 1970.
