Message from the President of the Alumni Society

What is the legacy you are leaving on Pitt?

My journey to Pitt began as a pediatric cancer patient, hearing about phenomenal Pitt clinical pharmacists. As a University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy class of 1998 graduate, I was able to participate in one of the last BS classes and then the PharmD program. I am grateful for my Pitt education and connections. I am now honored to serve as president of the Alumni Society for the 2014-2015 academic year, bringing to you my experience with networking, big data and enthusiasm for patient well-being.

On behalf of the Alumni Society, I would like to thank each of you for developing a rich network of talent and passion for patient care. Our students benefit from your experience and expertise in pharmacy and the healthcare environment. In this rapidly changing and competitive healthcare landscape, your leadership and support of students’ education, and financial contributions provide opportunities, scholarships and innovative experiences for our students.

Every year, the Alumni Society hosts several fun, social events that promote mentoring and networking between students and alumni. I encourage you to consider joining us for the Career Roundtable, The Gordon Vanscoy White Coat Ceremony, The Joseph A. Gatto Scholarship Golf Invitational, Homecoming Reception and the stunning Gala. 

Stay connected to the Pitt School of Pharmacy through Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. Visit the school’s website to reconnect with old friends, share a story about your experiences at Pitt and watch the progress of the new Salk Pavilion and the DNA Wall of Donors.

The faculty and administration at the school are committed to delivering an unparalleled experience for the students that prepares them to lead in the profession of pharmacy.

Hail to Pitt, 

Diane Kilian Ammerman, PharmD, '98
