The Emswiller Legacy

The Jewell and Carl F. Emswiller Jr. Interprofessional Symposium is committed to educating health professional students and practitioners about providing meaningful patient care through innovation in interprofessional practice. The symposium was endowed by Jewell Emswiller in honor of her late husband, Carl, and their shared passion for collaborative, patient-centered pharmacy practice.

Carl Emswiller was a leader and innovator in community pharmacy practice. He championed pharmacist-provided clinical activities, such as medication therapy management and reviews, and collaborative practice agreements that improved the health of patients. He served and chaired local, state and national organizations advocating for this cause. On December 10, 2009, Carl Emswiller passed away in Winchester, VA after a long battle with cancer. Jewell Emswiller passed away on December 30, 2018 in Leesburg, VA. This symposium will serve in perpetuity as a continuation of their work to elevate interprofessional practice for the improvement of patient’s health outcomes.
