Sabri Ibrahim, PharmD '03 Inducted into the Temple University Gallery of Success
On Thursday, October 10, 2019, Sabri Ibrahim, a 2003 graduate of Temple University School of Pharmacy's doctor of pharmacy program was inducted into the Temple University Gallery of Success in recognition of his entrepreneurship.
Since 2010, the Temple University Gallery of Success celebrates the outstanding professional achievements of Temple alumni. Each year, one graduate from each of Temple’s 17 schools and colleges are inducted and honored at a special event during Homecoming and Family Weekend.
Tracy Davidson, 11-time Emmy award-winning journalist and Gallery of Success inductee, announced Dr. Ibrahim's induction.
"Next, from the School of Pharmacy, we honor Dr. Sabri Zaidan Ibrahim. He’s a skilled pharmacist and ambitious entrepreneur who is dedicated to serving Philadelphia and its diverse communities. Dr. Ibrahim came to the U.S. from Palestine as a teenager, and today is proud to be a two-time graduate of Temple University.
Beginning his career at Rite Aid as an intern, Dr. Ibrahim’s talents were quickly noticed and he worked his way up the ladder, eventually becoming regional vice president.
In 2009, Dr. Ibrahim left Rite Aid to pursue his dream of owning his own retail pharmacy company serving the people from his community in Philadelphia. His company, Pharmacy of America, has employed hundreds of people from the same communities his pharmacies serves throughout the past 10 years.
To give back to his alma mater in a unique way, Ibrahim created a new course at the School of Pharmacy titled Independent Community Pharmacy. The course teaches students about the aspects of owning and operating independent and chain retail pharmacies and allows Dr. Ibrahim to share his experience and knowledge with future generations of pharmacists."
Sunny Ro, a member of the School's doctor of pharmacy class of 2020, presented the Gallery of Success plaque to Dr. Ibrahim.
