Hampton University Department of Pharmacy Practice Professor Dr. Carl Tullio was recently given the 2014 Virginia Society of Health-System Pharmacists (VSHP) Pharmacist of the Year award. Criteria for the award included being recognized as a leader within the pharmacy profession and having made contributions to pharmacy programs in the Commonwealth.

Tullio teaches several team-taught courses at HU including, Pharmaceutical Care, Drug Information, Over The Counter Drugs and Introduction to Pharmacy. He is also director of the HU School of Pharmacy Drug Information Center (DIC), which became fully staffed in 2013 and serves as a hotline for callers with questions about their medications.

Tullio said receiving the VHSP award is an honor.

"I am honored to have been recognized as a pharmacist who is making positive contributions to the field," he said. "It is the culmination of a long career in pharmacy."
