NSU Pharmacy Professor Earns Prestigious Fellowship

Barry Bleidt

Barry Bleidt, Ph.D.

Barry Bleidt, Ph.D., Pharm.D., R.Ph., professor in the Sociobehavioral and Administrative Pharmacy Department at Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU) College of Pharmacy, was among a select group of five pharmaceutical researchers elected as a fellow of the American Pharmacists Association’s Academy of Pharmaceutical Research and Science (APhA-APRS) at the organization’s 2015 Annual Meeting and Exposition in San Diego, California.

APhA-APRS stimulates the discovery, dissemination and application of research to improve patient health and serves pharmacists and those members who are involved in the pharmaceutical sciences.

Fellows are either members of the APhA Academy of Pharmacy Practice and Management (APhA-APPM) or the APhA Academy of Pharmaceutical Research and Science (APhA-APRS) with a minimum of 10 years professional experience. To become a fellow, members must have demonstrated exemplary professional achievements and service to the profession through activities with APhA and other national, state or local professional organizations.

“Becoming a fellow in the American Pharmacists Association – Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Research is one of the highest honors I have earned,” said Bleidt. “It is very meaningful to receive this honor and I am grateful to the support Nova Southeastern University has provided me to be able to achieve this level in the pharmacy profession.”

“This award recognizes Dr. Bleidt’s sustained contributions to the profession of pharmacy over the past three decades,” said Lisa Deziel, Pharm.D., Ph.D., dean of NSU’s College of Pharmacy. “This is a testament to the level of researchers we have on our faculty and the importance we place on service to the profession.”

Bleidt joined NSU in 2012. He has served in academia for more than 30 years.

Bleidt earned his Pharm.D. with a special emphasis in pharmacokinetics and pharmacoeconomics from Xavier University of Louisiana in New Orleans, his Ph.D. in pharmacy healthcare administration from the University of Florida (UF) in Gainesville, and his bachelor of science in pharmacy from the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy in Lexington. He also completed a research fellowship with the National Institutes of Health at UF.

Among many other awards, Bleidt received the 2013 Chauncey I. Cooper Medal, the highest honor bestowed by the National Pharmaceutical Association.
