Expanding Career Opportunities

Despite working tremendously hard throughout high school and my first two years at UConn, I began settling and removing myself from extracurricular environments. After making academics my number one priority in the school of pharmacy, my outreach efforts began to slow. However, after evaluation my P1 year, I wish I became more involved with clubs and organizations within the school of Pharmacy. Not only will this assist me discover a potential career path but also encourage me to continue encouraging myself and others to become advocates for the pharmacy profession as prominent healthcare providers.
