Patricia Naro is part of a legacy. "Three generations of my family attended or are attending Samford," she said. Naro has been employed at Samford for 13 years and has helped implement and execute the introductory pharmacy practice experience program, which was a significant curricular change from the early practice experience. She believes the truths of Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things through Him with strengthens me." "My mother always quoted this, and I live by this verse," she said.
