About the Francis J. O'Brien Society
The Francis J. O'Brien Society honors individuals who have made a charitable planned gift or have made it known their intentions to include Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in their wills or estate plans. Donors who have made financial or estate gifts of any size through wills, trusts or other planned gift vehicles are recognized for their dedication to the College' mission.

Dean O'Brien is often credited with transforming the College and Pharmacy as a profession during his tenure at the College. Dean O'Brien left a lasting impression on his students and the College as a whole.
