Harriet Beecher Stowe lived to be 85, an unusual feat for a woman born in 1811, when life expectancy was about 40. It is fair to assume she wasn’t talking specifically about women’s sexual health or reproductive health, but her words still ring true. Health is  everything. Yes, men and women experience similar health issues—heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, for example. But there are health challenges that negatively impact only, or predominately, women.

How research can shape your journey

Pharmacy school is filled with vast amounts of information to learn and retain until graduation and beyond. 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...

I was finally a pharmacist. I was excited, in disbelief, nervous, and over the moon all at the same time. All my hard work culminated to this moment, and it was time to embark on a journey of new...

A prescription for the soul

Very often, you might think of health professionals and characterize them as logical, left-brained, methodical, and systematic. You might not see them as risk-takers, explorers, or creative-types. In reality, individuals that push the most innovation in any field, including health care, are all of the above. One of my struggles in pharmacy school has been being unable to express my...

“Trust your gut”

You never know when or where you will find your passion. For Charlie Broussard, BSPharm, MEd, FAPhA, it was in a sociology class at Memphis State University, back in 1970. “We were discussing the fact that we as a nation had become a ‘throwaway society.’ Basically, we were talking about the people who were referred to as addicts and how they were being ignored by...
