The Harvey B. Morgan Institute of Government & Public Service

The Morgan Institute - Advocating for Public Service & Public Policy for Patient Care

The Honorable Harvey B. Morgan, legislator and pharmacist, retired in 2012 from the Virginia General Assembly after 32 years of service to his District and to the people of Virginia. His tireless legislative efforts and accomplishments have been recognized and honored by countless organizations.

The Virginia Pharmacists Association (VPhA) Research & Education Foundation has established an Institute of Government & Public Service. There is not a more fitting tribute to Harvey Morgan than naming the Institute in his honor: The Harvey B. Morgan Institute of Government & Public Service (Morgan Institute). Likewise, there is no one better to lead the Institute than Harvey Morgan himself, and we are grateful that he has generously agreed to guide the Institute’s good works. Harvey will be assisted by individuals with expertise in healthcare policy, advocacy, practice, and education.

As policy makers grapple with historic state and national challenges in healthcare, the VPhA Foundation envisions a better-informed citizenry, including public officials and pharmacy professionals, and an enhanced quality of life for all Virginians. In keeping with this vision, the VPhA Foundation is establishing the Morgan Institute to provide education and information on topics related to health care.
