Non-profit Organization Providing Support for FAMU College of Pharmacy, Institute of Public Health
Who we are
Welcome to the National Diamondback Pharmacy Alumni Council (NDPAC) website, your resource for alumni news, networking, and continuing education of the Florida A&M University College of Pharmacy, Institute of Public Health.
We originated as the National Florida A&M University Pharmacy Alumni Council in 1970. Although we changed our name to The National Diamondback Pharmacy Alumni Council in 2004, our commitment and dedication to the students, faculty, and administration of the FAMU College of Pharmacy, Institute of Public Health remains unchanged.
There are currently seven alumni chapters, five in Florida, one in Georgia, and one in the Washington, DC area. The alumni members in these chapters are essential to the foundation of our success. They recruit pharmacy students and alumni pharmacists, help promote a positive public image of FAMU College of Pharmacy, Institute of Public Health, raise funds for scholarships, and provide valuable networking opportunities.
To become a member, click “Join Now” and continue the tradition of “Excellence With Caring.” Contact a local chapter near you or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll put you in touch with a local council president near you.
