Howard University Expands its Partnership With Alto Pharmacy

The Howard University College of Pharmacy and Alto Pharmacy, a patient-centric telehealth pharmacy committed to health and wellbeing, have announced a three-year partnership to support student scholarships. Under the program, Alto will sponsor five scholarships for pharmacy students in each of the next three years. This expands on the paid internship program Alto Pharmacy has had with Howard University.

Several Alto Scholars will be selected by the College of Pharmacy’s scholarship committee each year. Alto’s 10-week immersive internship program empowers pharmacy students to learn side by side with Alto pharmacists at its fulfillment centers, build rapport with senior management and hopefully join Alto upon graduation.

“At Alto, we are working every day to help people live healthier by transforming the pharmacy industry. We can only do that over the long term if there is another generation of smart, committed, and diverse pharmacists to help continue to innovate, whether at Alto or elsewhere in the industry. This partnership is a small first step in supporting and empowering that generation,” said Matt Gamache-Asselin, founder of Alto Pharmacy.

“We are preparing students to be leaders in pharmacy practice, and the Alto Scholarship Fund will help us invest in our students,” said Toyin Tofade, dean and professor at Howard University College of Pharmacy. “Our partnership with Alto Pharmacy provides scholarships that will enhance student education, expand networking opportunities and provide real-world experiences for Howard pharmacy students.”
