Andrew Ejiofor

Hampton University School of Pharmacy 


Andrew Ejiofor is a fourth-year PharmD candidate at Hampton University in Hampton, VA. Prior to attending pharmacy school, Andrew completed two years as a chemistry major on a pre-pharmacy track from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

During his time in pharmacy school, Andrew has contributed greatly to the APhA-ASP chapter at Hampton University by serving as the 2020-2021 President and previously as the 2019-2020 Historian. He was a part of the Operation Immunization Committee, where he led his chapter in their annual Drive-Thru Flu Clinic at Bon Secours Health System. During the 2020 clinic, members actively helped patients get registered for their flu shot, directed traffic, and administered over 700 flu shots between 7 AM and 12 PM. In addition to APhA, Andrew is also involved in the Industry Pharmacists Organization where he serves as the Director of Professional Programming, and the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy where he is a charter member.

Andrew is passionate about service to the community, especially for medically underserved areas because of the barriers that underserved populations face that make it difficult to receive basic health care coverage and services. Through his internship with Riverside Regional Medical Center, Andrew was able to oversee the 450-bed facility by going through patient charts and making clinical interventions, while also providing technical support for the pharmacy services. With his passion for public health, Andrew plans to become a USPHS Commissioned Corps officer where he can affect positive change within his community through health care on a broader scale. He is excited to expand his knowledge through every opportunity.
