Born and raised in Birmingham, Ala., Katie Boyd's education and career have taken her to several interesting places including the National Cancer Institute, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, outpatient cancer clinics as well as inpatient stem cell transplant centers.  Her favorite scripture, Romans 12:12, “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer,” is one she enjoys sharing with her patients.  As a member of the McWhorter School of Pharmacy faculty, Boyd hopes to continue the legacy that was shared with her as a student.  In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, running, cooking with friends and volunteering in various capacities in Birmingham and across Alabama.
