Good morning President Frederick and Provost Wutoh,
Adaku Ofoegbu called on May 5, 2023 to notify me that she successfully defended her thesis and will be awarded the degree of Pharm.D at tomorrow’s Howard University 155th Commencement Convocation. Please see the 2 attached publications on which she provided major research input and graphic illustration design.

It is indeed fitting that the 46th President of the United States of America, Joseph R. Biden Jr, will be the commencement speaker because of his laser focus on the opioid epidemic as a national health crisis continuing in the wake of the COVID Pandemic. We congratulate Dr. Ofoegbu as well as all of the collaborative, “hidden figures” from the Howard University College of Pharmacy and Howard University College of Medicine who are bringing front-line, science-based, compassionate treatment solutions for any and all who are in need!
