Dr. Wayne Tate

Board of Directors


Wayne graduated with his B.S. in Biology with an emphasis in Psychology in 1997. That degree was followed by an opportunity to work as an Account Executive with a marketing research firm. Realizing his professional interest had grown toward business, health care, and the pharmaceutical industry, Wayne applied and was accepted into the University of Nebraska Medical Center-College of Pharmacy and the University of Nebraska at Omaha MBA program. Dually enrolled at both universities, Wayne ultimately graduated with his Doctorate in Pharmacy and MBA in International Business and Economics in May 2003.

Professionally, he has always worked multiple jobs to cater to his interest to learn how different organizations work. With each year counting as a year of experience, Wayne has collectively gained over 33 years of work experience since his 2003 graduation primarily with various health systems like Nebraska Medicine, Boys Town National Research Hospital, and CHI Health.

Wayne currently has been working over ten years at what he deems as his retirement job with Methodist Women’s Hospital as a clinical pharmacist. Additionally, Wayne has over ten years working at Charles Drew Health Center as the Senior Director of Pharmacy Services. Working for this urban health center is what Wayne considers his mission job where he knows he has an opportunity to give back to the community.
