Maryland Pharmacists Association Statement on Racial Violence


Columbia, MD, June 4, 2020  -  “I will consider the welfare of humanity and relief of suffering my primary concerns.”This is the Oath that all pharmacists commit to when they enter the profession. The Maryland Pharmacists Association (MPhA) stands with the Black community as it grieves the recent violent deaths ofAhmaudArbery, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd. We denounce the daily acts of aggression and actions that oppress communities of color that have resulted in social, economic, educational and health disparities.  


Acknowledging this moment is critical and it is incumbent upon all of us to reach out to those who are hurting and educate ourselves about the complex issues that led to the recent events. Fundamentally, it is about the right to live. 


MPhA, representing all pharmacists in Maryland, is firmly committed to taking action to support diversity, equity and inclusion among its members and community at large. We will educate and work with our members to address factors that promote health equity and eliminate health disparities.



The Maryland Pharmacists Association (MPhA) established in 1882, is the only state-wide professional society representing all practicing pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and student pharmacists.
