John Clark has served others for more than 40 years. He has done so as a clinician, educator, preceptor, mentor, researcher, and leader in pharmacy. His proud African American and working class family heritage continue to fuel his passion as a role model, supporting others as they pursue, achieve, and sustain professional excellence.

John is a 1974 alumnus of Texas Southern University, a 1979 Master of Science graduate in pharmaceutical administration from Wayne State University, and a 1983 graduate, with a Doctor of Pharmacy degree, from Florida A&M University.

Dr. Clark shares his journey, thoughts of retirement, and links his legacy to his mother’s refrain: Do something meaningful that matters to others.
