I bet even without having done a lit search on the topic you know from experience that it’s true. I know I have. In fact, as a first- and second-year PharmD candidate, it seemed...

Well, I am here to tell you being ready is overrated. With the state of the world, there isn’t time to waste. There are many good policy ideas, but not every good idea has a champion. Students...

Stay hungry for APhA–ASP

As the calendar turns to 2020, I want to take a moment to reflect upon the 2019 season of APhA–ASP Student Outreach Visits (SOV) and Midyear Regional Meetings (MRM), as well as my experiences as your APhA–ASP...

I figured there had to be something that would challenge and excite me in the same way that my friends were challenged and excited by sports. During my first...

This year, as the Vice President of Legislative Affairs for the Associated Students of Washington State University Health Sciences (ASWSUHS), I helped lead the passage of HB 1726 in the Washington state legislature. The bill increased...

As the daughter of a retired law enforcement officer, I was honored to assist with the implementation of 2019.5—Creating Safe Work and Learning Environments for Student Pharmacists, Pharmacists, and Pharmacy Technicians at APhA2019 in Seattle.  The impetus for this resolution focused on the increased need to address prescription drug theft, especially today when the opioid crisis...
