Michael D. Hogue, PharmD, FAPhA, FNAP, APhA Speaker of the House of Delegates

Michael Hogue is professor and chair of the department of pharmacy practice at Samford University's McWhorter School of Pharmacy, Birmingham, Alabama.  Michael is a recognized expert in the area of vaccines and immunization practice, and currently serves on the Board of Directors for the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases.  He had the distinct honor and privilege to complete APhA's executive residency in association management when it was co-sponsored by NCSPAE (now NASPA), and he completed his state pharmacy association rotation with the Pharmacy Society of Wisconsin.  

Michael is no stranger to the policy process.  He has served as president of both APhA-ASP and APhA-APPM, and served as the respective policy committee chair or co-chair three times.  He has served as a delegate to the APhA House of Delegates 22 of the past 24 years, and has been the author of several items which were eventually adopted as APhA policy.  He has served in the past as speaker of the Alabama Pharmacy Association House of Delegates, and has served as APhA's HOD parliamentarian since 2010.  He has led or served on numerous policy-related task forces and work groups within APhA and APA, including service on two influential profession-wide consensus groups - the Pharmacy Services Technical Advisory Committee (PSTAC) which developed MTM CPT Codes, and the MTM Definition Consensus Conference group, which developed the profession-wide definition for MTM which is broadly accepted today.  At the state level, he has worked closely with legislative leadership to gain bi-partisan support for collaborative practice authority for pharmacists.  Michael is a thought-leader and educator in the area of vaccines and immunization practice, having devoted his 20 years of practice to improving public health through immunizations.  

In addition, Michael has a heart for community service.  He currently serves as an elder in his local church, and as member of the school board for the Gardendale (Alabama) City Schools.  He is married to a pharmacist and APhA Member, Dr. Heather Hogue, and has two daughters ages 16 and 13.
