At the May 23 meeting of the Mississippi Board of Pharmacy (MBP), Susan McCoy was officially sworn in as Executive Director by Justice James (Jim) Kitchens.
"McCoy brings over three decades of pharmacy experience to the Board of Pharmacy,” said Guy Phillips, MBP President. “Her previous experience as a compliance agent and knowledge of state pharmacy regulations will make her successful in her new role as executive director. McCoy began her tenure as Executive Director on April 15, 2019.
Prior to her promotion to Executive Director, McCoy served the MBP as a compliance agent for the last nine and a half years. In addition to her role as a compliance agent, McCoy also brings over 25 years of experience in various pharmacy practices to her new position.
Justice Kitchens was elected in 2016 to a second eight-year term on the Mississippi Supreme Court (Central Distract, Place 3).
