Virginia Chan 700x550

You are invited to KGI’s 2021 White Coat Ceremony honoring the PharmD classes of 2024 and 2025. Please register below. Maximum ticket per person is 4.

The ceremony is a momentous occasion for new students entering the field. During the ceremony, colleagues already in the profession give each student a white coat, signifying the beginning of the student’s career in pharmacy. For students whose parents are pharmacists, the white coat is given by that respective parent.

Our keynote speaker is Dr. Virginia Chan, President of Covina Pharmacy and ABC Pharmacy-Redlands. She earned her Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of Pacific, where she also sits on the Board of Regents and serves as co-chair of the 300 Million Cabinet. She received the 2016 Distinguished Family Award from Pacific, and was inducted into their Gallery of Benefactors in 2007. Virginia and her husband, Dr. Tony Chan, donated to the KGI School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in April of 2021. KGI renamed its café and patio to the Chan Family Café and Patio to celebrate the family’s philanthropy.
