Doug Murray, PharmD, of Heath Springs, has been reelected to the board of the S.C. Society of Health System Pharmacists (SCSHP) as the representative for District 3. SCSHP is a state affiliate of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. SCHSP’s mission is to advance public health, safety, patient care and patient outcomes through enhancing the roles of health-system pharmacy professionals by promoting education, communication, research and legislation.

SCSHP’s goal is to support and promote safe and effective pharmacy care for every person in the state of South Carolina. As the District 3 director, Dr. Murray will represent the Midlands region at regular board meetings and promote the mission and goals of the organization to members in his region.

Murray received a bachelor of science degree in pharmacy from the University of South Carolina College of Pharmacy in 1977, and received a doctor of pharmacy degree in 1996. He has been employed at KershawHealth in Camden since 1978, where he serves as the pharmacy director. In his position, Murray is active not only in management, but also in the clinical services for patient care provided by the department. He has also received KershawHealth’s Thoroughbred award, given in recognition of continuous commitment to exceeding expectations for patient satisfaction, teamwork and service.

Murray has been active in S.C. pharmacy organizations throughout his career, including serving as president of the S.C. Consultant Pharmacists. He is an adjunct professor for the S.C. College of Pharmacy at both the Columbia and Charleston campuses, as well as South University College of Pharmacy. He was honored as the preceptor of the year for the S.C. College of Pharmacy in 1996. He was awarded the SCSHP’s “Pharmacist of the Year” in 2010. He has also been actively involved with state legislation regarding pharmacy matters, as well as serving as a board member for the pharmacy organization for the past four years.

In addition, Murray is active in faith-based organizations both regionally and nationally, including as a past board member of the Kershaw Area Resource Exchange (KARE), a board member for the Kershaw Community Park Committee and a board member for a Native American teaching center in Maryland.
