Emanuel J. George III, PharmD
Associate Dean for Student Engagement and Alumni Affairs and Associate Professor
Education & Experience:
I am originally from New Orleans, LA and a proud graduate of Xavier University of Louisiana College of Pharmacy. I worked for a major community pharmacy throughout pharmacy school and continued employment locally after graduation in 2005. After Hurricane Katrina, I assisted with citywide cleanup and restoration efforts while commuting weekly from Houston, TX. I relocated in January 2006 to Houston, TX where I managed three different pharmacies before being promoted to regional pharmacy supervisor here in Fort Worth, TX. For the past 6 years, I have overseen the operation of 40 community pharmacies throughout the Fort Worth area including the major southern suburbs, and Waco and Abilene. I am currently pursuing a Master’s of Arts in Leadership from Luther Rice Seminary with an expected completion in December 2016.
Teaching Areas & Interests:
Through my experience, I have been involved in experiential education for over 9 years. I have had countless experiences as a pharmacy preceptor to interact directly with students both as employees and through their rotations. I have mentored and coached many students throughout their pursuit of obtaining a pharmacy degree. Also, I am passionate for small group education, one-on-one patient counseling, professional leadership and health care professional education.
Professional Activities & Awards:
I am a member of professional organizations including the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, American Pharmacists Association and Texas Pharmacists Association. I look forward to continue mentorship of students through the College of Pharmacy. Outside of the college, I chair the Missions Advisory Council for Harmony CDC. This local non-profit is focused on strengthening families and revitalizing neighborhoods through community-driven and solution-oriented approaches.
My clinical interests include chronic disease management and patient education. My scholarly interests include the impact of socioeconomic factors, the advancement of technology and an individual’s religious and spirituality beliefs on patient care.
