Dr. Braxton Lloyd is a native of Cottondale, Florida. She studied at Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Alabama where she received a B.A. in Chemistry with a minor in Biology (Cum Laude) and she then moved to Auburn and fell in love with The Plains. She received a B.S. in pharmacy in 1994 and a Pharm.D. in 1995 from the Harrison School of Pharmacy (both Summa Cum Laude); completed a Pharmacy Practice Residency at The Medical Center in Columbus, Georgia in 1996; year one of a two-year research fellowship in pharmacoeconomics and outcomes research at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, South Carolina in 1997; and finished the last year of her fellowship training with GlaxoWellcome, in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina in 1998.
She then returned to Auburn, and joined the faculty of HSOP in 1998 as an Assistant Professor. Her initial assignment was developing, implementing, and assessing the impact of the Auburn University Pharmaceutical Care Center (AUPCC), which she opened in 2000. She also began teaching pharmacoeconomics; women’s health; pulmonary and endocrine pharmacotherapy; and early and advanced experiential education in primary care and electives in applied pharmacoeconomics and academics. She completed the AACP fellowship in pharmacy academic administration in 2007.
Today, she is a Gilliland endowed full professor of pharmacy practice, and the Assistant Dean of Health Services for HSOP. She also serves as the Chief Pharmacy Officer for Auburn University and works closely with Human Resources in this role.
As Assistant Dean of Health Services, Dr. Braxton Lloyd is the administrator in charge of all clinical and pharmacy services that are provided directly to patients through AU’s Harrison School of Pharmacy. This includes three pharmacies (the AU Student Pharmacy, the AU Employee Pharmacy, and the State Employees Insurance Board (SEIB) Pharmacy in Montgomery, Alabama); two clinics (the Auburn University Pharmaceutical Care Center and the SEIB Health and Wellness Center); a network of community pharmacies (the Alabama Pharmacy Services Network); and two nationally-accredited post-doctoral residency programs (a PGY-1 in ambulatory Care and a PGY-1 in Community Pharmacy). She is continuously pushing the envelope on pharmacy practice to advance the profession. Her goal is to expand opportunities for community pharmacist to provide clinical services in the community pharmacy setting and be reimbursed for this care.
