When asked what attracted him to this teaching opportunity, Dr. Khail remarked, “UGA’s College of Pharmacy has a strong national reputation for academic excellence and resources that are hard to beat. I also completed my undergraduate degree here, so I was already fond of the University, the town, and the culture at UGA. After speaking with various members of the faculty, the passion and pride they felt for the school and the community were obvious and further confirmed that UGA was the perfect fit for me.” Dr. Khail’s office is located in R.C.
