ASHP MEMBER SINCE 1975

Marianne F. Ivey, Pharm.D., M.P.H., FASHP, served as ASHP’s President in 1981. “I remember the day that Dr. Oddis dropped me off at the White House to meet President Ronald Reagan, who had invited many organizations to celebrate National Safety Week,” Marianne recalled. “Pharmacy had introduced the safety closure cap for prescription bottles, so I got to shake President Reagan’s hand and have a photo op!”

Marianne is Professor Emerita at the University of Cincinnati. She was inspired to become a pharmacist by the pharmacist and his wife in her small hometown. “They sponsored me to visit the University of Wisconsin School of Pharmacy when I was in high school. I loved what I heard and saw,” said Marianne.

Over the years, Marianne has served in several leadership roles at ASHP including the Chair of the House of Delegates (1985) and Treasurer of ASHP (2001-2007).

“ASHP has a great staff of talented, dedicated people who do meaningful work with colleagues throughout our profession — all to benefit patients’ experiences with medications,” said Marianne. “The organization has a serious, but fun, family feel.”
