"The Vincentian mission is unique among all colleges of pharmacy and health sciences. I want to trumpet this. When people think of St. John's—and any of the health sciences—the first thing that comes to their mind should be that this is the place to go if you want to be trained in community health, service to diverse populations and understanding poverty. My goal is to make sure that every one of our programs has overt components that you can tell are from a University with a Vincentian mission."- Russell DiGate, Ph.D., Dean, College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences
