As the needs of higher education continue to grow, donations of both time and money enable the ULM College of Pharmacy to produce and maintain excellent academic, research, and service programs.
Marty McKay (B.S. '74) is one of the many supporters of the ULM College of Pharmacy who gives back to his alma mater in variable ways.
