McWhorter School of Pharmacy Professor and associate dean of the Center for Faith and Health, Michael D. Hogue sees his position at Samford as a huge honor. Hogue, a native of rural southern Illinois, was initially drawn to Samford as an undergraduate because of its Christian mission and values. He ultimately met his wife, Heather, and thanks to professors who mentored him, he discovered his professional path while a student. When he was given the opportunity to come back to the faculty at Samford after years of being a community pharmacy owner and clinical pharmacist in ambulatory care, Hogue agreed. "The Lord has called me to serve here at Samford to help shape the lives of aspiring pharmacists just as my professors did for me. It is my hope that God will use me in some small way to accomplish His purpose at Samford."
