Maine plans to discuss service and the changing roles of pharmacists as professionals and citizens.

Maine received her pharmacy degree from Auburn University and her doctorate from the University of Minnesota. Her past research includes projects on aging, pharmacy manpower and pharmacy-based immunizations. Maine previously served as senior vice president for policy, planning and communications with the American Pharmacists Association. She was on the faculty at the University of Minnesota, where she practiced in the field of geriatrics, and was an associate dean at the Samford University School of Pharmacy.

Maine has been active in leadership roles in the profession. Before joining the APhA staff, she served as speaker of the APhA House of Delegates and as an APhA trustee. She is president of the Federation of Associations of Schools of the Health Professions and a board member for Research! America.

“Dr. Maine’s message on the importance of service is critically important in the professional development of our students,” said pharmacy Dean Barbara G. Wells. “Under her leadership, AACP has partnered with pharmacy faculty and administrators to transform pharmacy education.

“She has led the association to expand its mission and to provide critically needed services and resources that have enabled pharmacy schools to elevate the quality of education that they provide. She has also worked tirelessly in collaboration with other national pharmacy associations to improve medication use and the outcomes of medication therapy.”

The Hartman Lecture was established at UM in 1973 to honor the late Charles W. Hartman, who was dean of the pharmacy school from 1961 until his death in 1970. Former lecturers include U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese; Mark McClellan, commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration; U.S. Senators Thad Cochran and Trent Lott; and Leo Sternbach, who synthesized Valium and Librium.
