This ceremony celebrates the completion of the Doctor of Pharmacy. The hood, an essential component of academic regalia, is formally presented to the graduating learner by the Dean. It is placed over the learner’s gown symbolizing completion of the academic program. The placement of the hood precedes the final step in the graduation process which is the formal conferral of the Doctor of Pharmacy by the Dean and the President of Western New England University.

Megan would like to thank her parents, Keith and Sheri, and her brother Ben, and Fiancé Rob Coolidge for their unending love and support through this special time in her life. Megan is now doing a one year residency in West Virginia.
