Throughout his life, Carl F. Emswiller, Jr., was a leader in the profession of pharmacy and a pioneer in the areas of pharmaceutical care and collaborative practice. He championed pharmacist-provided activities that improved the health of patients, and he served and chaired local, state, and national organizations relating to pharmacy and improving his community. In one of his favorite roles, Emswiller was a role model and mentor to the pharmacy students he taught and precepted as he led by example and shared his passion for patient care.
Jewell Emswiller (deceased), Carl’s wife of 53 years, established prior to her passing the Carl F. Emswiller Memorial Fund to honor Carl’s innumerable contributions to pharmacy. The fund directly supports the APhA Carl F. Emswiller Summer Internship in Association Management, which provides students the opportunity to gain experience in national pharmacy association activities such as practice issues, educational programming and project management. The internship has a special emphasis on collaborative practice, which was an integral focus of Emswiller’s career.
