At East Tennessee State University (ETSU) Bill Gatton College of Pharmacy, it is the ongoing goal of the APhA–ASP Chapter’s Generation Rx initiative to adapt events to the needs that are prevalent in the Appalachian region. This goal allows committee members to connect with the people they are striving to help. Often, the medication-related issues that residents of our community face are similar to those that student pharmacists have seen in their own hometowns. Prescription opioids are still the most common drugs associated with overdose deaths in Tennessee. The region of...

Family traditions

Recently, my mom offered to write me a letter of recommendation for Rho Chi, the academic pharmacy honor society that she and my dad were accepted into about 25 years ago. I had to tell my mom that, sadly, Rho Chi does not accept “legacy” members. You see, I come from a family of pharmacists—my Papaw, mom and dad, aunt, two uncles, and a cousin are all pharmacists. As I grew...

Substance use disorders are not just today’s epidemic, but an issue that will require lifelong vigilance and support. After attending the APhA Institute on Alcoholism & Drug Dependencies as a Ronald L. Williams Memorial Fund scholarship recipient, I have gained the knowledge and inspiration to be an active part of the solution. From start to finish, the APhA Institute was an...

In a Tennessee State (Association) of mind

When entering my final-year of pharmacy school, I was a bit uncertain about where my career was headed, but I was determined to do one thing during rotations—that was to try it all. One of these rotations took me to the Tennessee Pharmacists Association (TPA). During that rotation month, I had the opportunity to work with other state pharmacy associations, help assist staff with...

This can make it hard to take time for activities that can enrich future pharmacists with experiences not obtainable in the classroom. Professional organizations, leadership positions, and working in pharmacies are great examples of vital out-of-classroom experiences to help students...

A journey from PharmD to PhD

The field of pharmacy is advancing and changing, with many new career paths and education for pharmacists beyond the traditional roles. As a PharmD graduate pursuing postgraduate education in the health outcomes field in preparation for a career in academia, I understand how challenging it can be for today’s student pharmacists to decide which career path is right for them. I will...

Carpe diem

Earlier this summer, I completed a PGY2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency Program at Yale New Haven Hospital (YNHH) in New Haven, CT. To say that my path to where I am today has been non-traditional would be an understatement.
