In a small town in the Mississippi Delta, we found Samford McWhorter School of Pharmacy alum, Mike Gilbow, ’80. Gilbow's passion to make a difference brought him back to the place he’s always called home and, by working with others in his community, he has helped create the rural health care hub of the Delta at North Sunflower Medical Center. Gilbow is in charge of the pharmacy operations at the hospital, but is clearly contributing so much more. It was obvious during our visit that this hospital takes great pride in the care that they provide and that they love the people that they serve. The comradery amongst the employees was palpable and we couldn’t have felt more welcomed. Thank you to everyone at North Sunflower Medical Center for a wonderful visit. And, congratulations to Mike and his team, which also includes Samford Brock School of Business alum, Sam Miller ’87 as their CEO, for setting the standard for health care in a rural setting.
