Cecil Davis, Pharm D, assistant director of operations for Southern Pharmacy Services in Kernersville, NC, is running for a seat on the North Carolina Board of Pharmacy. The North Carolina Board of Pharmacy was created by the state to protect the public health, safety and welfare in pharmaceutical matters. The Board sets standards for academic and practical experience programs, issues permits to operate pharmacies and annually renews licenses and permits.

Dr. Davis, a graduate of Campbell University School of Pharmacy, began his pharmacy career delivering prescriptions on his bicycle for a local pharmacy in Cary, NC. After earning his Doctor of Pharmacy degree, he was certified in geriatric pharmacy and is currently licensed in both North Carolina and Virginia.

“Serving on the North Carolina Board of Pharmacy is a great way to give back and honor the profession that has always been a huge part of my life,” said Davis. “The pharmacy industry continues to change and the board needs pharmacists with different professional backgrounds who can adapt with that change. I believe my experience and expertise in the industry would play a beneficial part in advancing the heritage of pharmacy that we have come to enjoy in North Carolina.”

Voting will take place online at the North Carolina Board of Pharmacy website between April 13 and April 27.
