Committee Assignments


Born and raised in Tallahassee, Dr. Gallop P. Franklin II, graduate from Florida A&M University's College of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences is a Clinical Pharmacist with a focus on Pharmaceutical Compounding at TMH, and an Assistant Professor of Pharmacy Practice at Florida A&M University where he is the Chair of the Curriculum Committee for the College. Gallop has committed his professional life to addressing health disparities of the community. While a College student, from 2009 - 2011, Gallop served on the Florida A&M University Board of Trustees, and because of his in-depth understanding of Florida's Higher Education System, he was elected to serve one year (2010 - 2011) on the Florida Board of Governors, which is the policy board for the State University System of Florida. Because of Gallop's interest in public service, he sought out the opportunity to serve as a Gubernatorial fellow, where he was able to learn how Florida's Government governs the State of Florida as well as assist during the process under the leadership of Gov. Charlie Crist. While a Gubernatorial Fellow, Gallop was nominated by U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and then was confirmed by the Open World Leadership to serve as an International Fellow, which at the time was a group of aspiring U.S. leaders who played an intricate role within US-Eurasian relationships. Shortly after the aforementioned appointment Gallop and others established a non-profit organization (CAREEL) to assist in the strengthening of US-Eurasian relationships, where Gallop served as a member of the Advisory board and the Advancement Director. With the desire to continue to help the community through additional avenues, Gallop founded Gallop Inc. where he serves as the President/CEO. Gallop Inc. is a general consulting firm with its main focus on education; Gallop Inc. also recently created a boutique Real Estate investment firm to provide affordable housing for communities throughout Northern Florida. He also serves as the Vice-President of Diversity for the Suwannee River Area Boy Scouts of America Council. He is a member of the City of Tallahassee Minority, Women & Small Business Enterprise Citizen Advisory Committee, and is a member of the Tallahassee Human Relations Council. Franklin is a fourth-degree black belt in Shaolin Goju karate, a former nationally ranked gymnast, and accomplished violinist.
