A faculty member of the Master of Science in Health Services Administration (MSHSA) program at the University of Wyoming School of Pharmacy is the recipient of the Joseph L. Fink III Founders Award from the American Society for Pharmacy Law (ASPL).
David Brushwood, founder of the MSHSA online program, was selected for his outstanding service and contributions to the pharmacy and legal professions.
“I’m extremely flattered by this award, especially since it comes to me from an organization that has supported me so much throughout my career,” he said.
Brushwood, a pharmacist and attorney who retired from the University of Florida faculty in 2014, is now a faculty member of the MSHSA program, focusing on regulatory aspects of opioid use, extemporaneous compounding and patient safety.
“It has been an honor to work with David over the years and now in the MSHSA program,” said Elliott Sogol, director of postgraduate education at the UW School of Pharmacy. “His ideas and dedication to the program and the students are unwaveringly similar to his career over the years in support of pharmacy law education.”
During his 40-year career as a pharmacy law educator, speaker, and author, Brushwood has authored nearly 200 peer-reviewed manuscripts, books, and book chapters; made more than 160 regional, national and international professional presentations; and received over $600,000 in extramural funding.
Brushwood was honored at the ASPL Business Meeting earlier this month at the Developments in Pharmacy Law Seminar at the Naples Grande Beach Resort in Naples, Florida.
