One of the things we love about Samford is the long legacy that our alumni and their families have with the university. Cole Sandlin, ’08 is an excellent example of this. As a triple legacy, Sandlin and his family have been connected with the McWhorter School of Pharmacy for nearly seventy years, as both his grandfather and his father also graduated from Samford Pharmacy. The family continues to serve patients at Fred’s Pharmacy, a progressive, bustling community apothecary located in the heart of Hamilton, Alabama. Not only is Sandlin a dedicated pharmacist, father and husband, he’s also a very important part of the pharmacy profession in Alabama—dedicating what free time he does have to sitting on multiple boards, including the Alabama Pharmaceutical Association—and always looking for ways to push the pharmacy forward. His newest venture? Having the first telemedicine health system in Alabama installed in his pharmacy which is currently available for use and pictured here. Thank you to the Sandlin family for allowing us to visit and for their continued dedication to the McWhorter School of Pharmacy at Samford.
