About Cedric Torry, PharmD, RPH
Dr. Cedric Torry, PharmD, Rph, is a native of Utica, Mississippi, and spent most of his early years building the foundation that has supported his distinguished career. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree at Xavier University in New Orleans and then obtained a Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the same university.
Dr. Torry is a board-certified pharmacist currently based in the Jackson metro area, where he has worked in some of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the United States. He was also a clinical pharmacist at Molina Healthcare and is the Chief Pharmacy Officer at GA Carmichael Family Health Care Center in Canton, Mississippi.
Dr. Torry is a motivated, result-focused customer service professional. He is passionate about improving patient access to their medications and preventive healthcare needs. His work at GA Carmichael has been transformational in streamlining the pharmacy processes and initiating programs that aim at delivering much need medications to patients in locations closer to their homes. He is an advocate for preventive care and has been very active in providing preventive healthcare services, including immunizations and pre-exposure prophylaxis for HIV for at-risk population groups.
In his words, “lack of access to care is just one of the numerous health disparities that disproportionately affect African Americans and people from low-income backgrounds, especially in rural Mississippi. The people of Mississippi deserve easy access to world-class, life-saving preventive and therapeutic healthcare services”.
