Buies Creek, NC - Concord pharmacist and Campbell alum Joseph S. Moose is the recipient of the 2009 M. Keith Fearing, Jr. Community Pharmacy Practice Award from Campbell University.

The M.

"As a Campbell graduate, I understand the significance of this award. Mr. Fearing was a paragon in the field of pharmacy. I'm honored to receive this recognition," Moose notes.
Dr. Moose serves as a Preceptor to Campbell University Pharm.D. candidates and serves a dual role as an adjunct assistant professor and Director of Community Pharmacy residency at UNC-Chapel Hill School of Pharmacy. He also serves as a clinical assistant professor of Pharmacy Practice at Wingate University School of Pharmacy.

"Joe Moose exemplifies the type of graduate we envisioned when the Campbell University School of Pharmacy was started" said Dr. Ronald Maddox, dean of the Campbell School of Pharmacy. "His practice epitomizes what the M. Keith Fearing Community Pharmacy Award was designed to recognize: patient dedication, community engagement, professional involvement, and family commitment."
