“Ahmed is an exemplary role model of Manchester University and its Pharmacy Program’s commitment to foster a selfless commitment to providing principled, productive and compassionate advocacy and service to diverse groups of people,” said Raylene Rospond, MU vice president and dean of the MU Pharmacy Program.
Abdelmageed joined the Pharmacy Program in November 2011 and received its Outstanding Service Award in 2014.
He is a co-administrator of the school’s Experiential Education program, with special focus on areas of curricular development and instruction; program administration; preceptor development; and assessment and quality assurance.
This fall, he and Kierstan Hanson, Pharm.D., created an elective for a select group of Manchester pharmacy students that served the area’s vulnerable and underserved patients. The program will resume in the fall.
“I nominated Ahmed Abdelmageed because of his amazing desire to help people in need,” said Zubair Khan, a Fort Wayne optometrist and co-founder of the Kiddie Academy, who was a 2014 Forty Under 40 honoree. He said Abdelmageed’s “community service accomplishments speak volumes.”
Abdelmageed earned his Doctor of Pharmacy from Ferris State University College of Pharmacy and most recently was founding director of experiential education at Husson University College of Pharmacy.
