King, a native of Harlem, NY, received her pharmacy education from Duquesne University and the University of Southern California as well as a Master’s in Public Health at The University of California at Los Angeles. Dr. King has practiced in community and hospital pharmacy as well in global public health.

Dr. King was the first African-American employed as a staff member of the American Pharmacists Association (APhA) in 1969. During the “War on Poverty’, APhA was awarded a grant from the Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO) and sought qualified pharmacists for this grant. Based on Dr. King’s unique experience as a senior pharmacist in an OEO health center, the Watts Health Center in South Central Los Angeles, she was selected to serve as the Assistant Project Director on the research project: “The Delivery of Pharmaceutical Services in Poverty Areas of the US”, especially around federally-funded neighborhood health centers. While in Washington, she became involved in activities supporting engagement of minority pharmacy students, which included efforts to establish the Student National Pharmaceutical Association (SNPhA) and align it with the National Pharmaceutical Association (NPhA).

Dr. King has served some 28 years in the international arena beginning as a Public Health Advisor on Pharmaceuticals for the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), followed by directing international programs and projects for both the Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science in Los Angeles and the Continuing Education Program at Howard University. Dr. King retired in 2008 from the Continuing Education Program of Howard University.

Upon retirement from Howard, it was noted that approximately 2,310 middle to senior-level officials from 27 countries and the U.S. were trained and had skills enhanced under some 40 projects she directed. She was the founding director of the Pharmacists and Continuing Education (PACE) Center within that Program. Of particular note were the efforts in Romania and Nigeria. In Romania, she led a collaborative project with the University of Cluj-Napoca to support the training of community pharmacists in Women’s Health. With funding from the President’s Emergency Program for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), she worked with colleagues in Nigeria to write the Howard University component in the flagship project, Global HIV/AIDS Initiative Nigeria (GHAIN).

In 1990 she was the first Black woman to be elected (then re-elected) to the United States Pharmacopeial Convention Committee of Revision and was the Chair on their historic International Health Panel for 10 years. This panel laid the foundation for the drug information service relationship USP has with USAID presently in Romania.

In 2017, she was inducted as an NPhA Fellow, an award given to pharmacists who have made sustained contributions to the Association and who have demonstrated exceptional performance in serving the medically underserved.
