MCPHS University recently profiled Ernie Gates in its annual Report on Giving. Gates earned his pharmacy degree in 1967 at MCPHS when the Boston-based institution was still known as the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy. He served on its Board of Trustees from 2006 to 2009.
"I’m always impressed by the directions people have taken with their MCPHS education," Gates says in the article. "It isn’t just pharmacology, chemistry, biology and math; it is how to manage a practice, how to work with patients, and ultimately, how to care for your community."
