Sixty-three graduating students of the first class of the Touro College of Pharmacy received their doctor of pharmacy degrees in May at the New York Academy of Medicine.

The members of the class of 2012 began their studies in October 2008 when the college launched in Harlem, the only pharmacy school in Manhattan. The school's mission is to improve the public health by educating a diverse student body, which will serve underrepresented communities and work to minimize health disparities.

"Being part of a new enterprise is a great achievement," Touro College President and CEO Alan Kadish, MD, said. "At Touro, we believe we're here for a purpose, which is to make the world a better place. You've all declared yourselves individuals who will fight against complacency and move our society forward."
