Dean's Message

Greetings alumni and friends of the Winkle College of Pharmacy,

Welcome to the 2021 New Year edition of Cincinnati Pharmacy!  

As many of you are aware, Neil MacKinnon, our college dean from 2013-20, departed UC in December to become the provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at Augusta University in Georgia and I am currently serving as interim dean.  

I have linked a professional profile; however, I think what is most important to know about me is that my enthusiasm for this role is rooted in being a three-time graduate of the University of Cincinnati and a proud UC Bearcat! 

While the past year has certainly been challenging in many ways, the college has a solid foundation and the faculty and staff continue to deliver an excellent program to our students…because the James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy is strong!  Pharmacy researchers here are diligently working to advance knowledge in the discovery, design and use of medications and our clinical faculty continue to provide care to so many patients who need it now more than ever. I am inspired and motivated by the members of this great pharmacy profession every day. 

During this New Year, I wish you all the best and hope that your holiday is filled with joy and peace.  

Pam Heaton
BSPharm, PhD, FAPhA
Interim Dean and Professor of Pharmacy Practice and Administrative Sciences
