I am a scientist. Even when I was a little girl, I always preferred science and math. In fact, I asked Santa Claus for a microscope for Christmas when I was only 8 years old. Other school subjects such as history and English did not garner my attention like molecules and math. I could not see how politics and policy could affect my everyday life. However, in pharmacy school, I found my passion for policy.

My chronic disease helps me be a better pharmacist

I have carried that heavy label for 5 years since I was diagnosed with lupus nephritis at the age of 21. I am very lucky to be alive and I am grateful that my condition has been manageable. My chronic illness has been both a burden and an inspiration. It has made...
