Our
Values

Leadership

Integrity

Who Are We?

Leadership. Service. Integrity. These are the guiding principles of the JSI Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization founded by a group of young, phenomenal African-American pharmacists. In 2019, only 4.9% of all pharmacists identified as Black, and Black women account for even less. Our goal is to help alleviate some of the financial obstacles to obtaining a Doctor of Pharmacy degree by rewarding academic excellence and volunteer service with our JSI Foundation Remembrance Scholarship.

I tell my students, "When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else."
