Community Pharmacists, Underserved Communities, and Health Care Inequities: HU History

This guide will provide a brief, culturally-centered, evidence-based introduction to the specialization of Community Pharmacy and Underserved Communities.




According to Howard University’s office of Research and Institutional Assessment, the largest student demographic that entered the College of Pharmacy's 2019 P1 class was African American women. True to the legacy of producing black excellence; Howard University has been at the vanguard of providing African American women access to professional and scientific education and in fostering gender equality within the fields of Pharmacology and the Pharmaceutical sciences. In fact, it should be no surprise that the first African American woman to own her own Pharmacy in 1899, graduated from the Pharmaceutical College (now Howard University’s College of Pharmacy) in 1897.
