John E. Carl's Bio

John E. Clark is Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmacotherapeutics and Clinical Research and Director of Experiential Education and Pharmacy Residency Programs at the University of South Florida (USF) College of Pharmacy in Tampa.

Clark is also a Clinical Pharmacist and Faculty Preceptor in Ambulatory Care at the USF Morsani Health Center Building Relationships and Initiatives Dedicated to Gaining Equality (BRIDGE) Healthcare Clinic. The BRIDGE Healthcare Clinic is a student-run, multidisciplinary, non-profit clinic that services uninsured and underinsured patients in the Tampa area. Clark oversees the development and provision of pharmacy services, including medication reconciliation, patient education and counseling, and disease and medication management services.

Before joining the faculty at USF, Clark held several roles at Jackson Memorial Hospital Department of Pharmacy in Miami, Florida, Grand Prairie Community Hospital, in Grand Prairie, Texas, and Detroit General Hospital.

Clark is a vocal advocate for the creation of culturally competent systems of care as a means to address racial and ethnic disparities in healthcare. In 1996, he organized a series of regional seminars on pharmacists’ roles in the treatment and prevention of diabetes. He also was instrumental for several years in the planning and implementation of the ABHP Minority Health Conference, which explored health literacy, medication adherence, use of health information technology, and medication management of conditions such as diabetes, renal disease, prostate cancer, and HIV/AIDS.

A past president of ABHP, Clark played an instrumental role in the organization’s influence on minority healthcare issues, including the creation of the ABHP Research and Education Foundation. In 2005, Clark led an effort to increase collaboration between ABHP and ASHP on matters of mutual interest, including reducing health disparities and increasing ethnic and cultural diversity in the workplace. The partnership resulted in a series of educational sessions at ASHP’s Midyear Clinical Meeting and the development of the Joint Leadership Award.

A widely published author and sought-after speaker, Clark’s current projects include a historical review of the contributions of African American women in pharmacy and an analysis of the ways early, and now defunct, African American pharmacy schools impacted health disparities.

Clark earned a B.S. in Pharmacy from Texas Southern University College of Pharmacy and a Pharm.D. from Florida A&M University. He earned a M.S. in Pharmaceutical Administration from Wayne State University and completed his residency training at Detroit General Hospital.
