Bowman elected president of N.C. Board of Pharmacy

Andy Bowman (’93 PharmD, RPh), director of Continuing Education and clinical assistant professor of Pharmacy Practice, was elected by his peers on the board to be president of the North Carolina Board of Pharmacy. Bowman is the first Campbell pharmacy alumnus ever elected to the Board of Pharmacy.

N.C. Board of Pharmacy Executive Director Jay Campbell said, “I, and all board staff, look forward to working with Andy as board president. Andy has shown, throughout his pharmacy career, a dedication to public service.”

After capturing the southeast district seat on the Board of Pharmacy in 2015, Bowman is now serving his third year of his five-year term on the board. In addition to being the first Camel elected president of the N.C. Board of Pharmacy, Bowman is also the first Harnett County pharmacist to serve in this capacity since the late William H. “Bill” Randall Jr. of Lillington. Randall was instrumental in helping develop the Doctor of Pharmacy program at Campbell University.  

“Dr. Bowman has been a tireless advocate for the profession ever since he graduated from Campbell,” said Bryon May, PharmD, RPh, chairman and professor of Pharmacy Practice. “His election to the Board of Pharmacy in 2015 was a milestone for Campbell as the first CPHS alumni to be elected. Andy’s selection as the Board of Pharmacy President is an even greater achievement and represents the confidence and trust the Board has in his leadership.”

Bowman has served the pharmacy profession and his community in many capacities. He currently serves on the board of directors for the Harnett Health Foundation and the North Carolina Physician Health Program (NCPHP). He is a member of the American Pharmacists Association and the American Academy of College of Pharmacy.

His service at Campbell not only includes teaching and mentoring students and leading the continuing education program, but serving on seven committees, including being chairman of the lunch and learn subcommittee and the continuing education committee. In addition to his professional association involvement and work at the university, he is a part-time pharmacist at Realo Discount Drug in Lillington.
