Pharmacy Students Ready to Travel Part 2

I’d like to introduce, Mike, the second pharmacy student who is joining me for the safari to Uganda.

My name is Michael and I am 23 years old from Point Pleasant, New Jersey. My home is located about 3 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, where I live with my mom, dad, younger sister, and our golden doodle (dog). In my free time, I enjoy playing golf and tennis. I also like to watch football and baseball in which my favorite teams are the New York Giants and New York Yankees. I do enjoy to travel, but in the past I have not travelled far outside the United States. I have went to many different states, including California, Arizona, Florida, and also the Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Belize, Mexico, and Puerto Rico, outside of the continental US. I think this trip is a once in a lifetime opportunity where it will be a great chance to meet people from and learn a different culture. I know I can learn a lot from the people I will meet while visiting Uganda, including about their healthcare system. I hope to use what I learn on this trip throughout my career to help make me a better pharmacist. For the past 2 years in school, I was a teaching assistant for Anatomy & Physiology lab. This past year, I also performed research at a local free clinic to see the affect the clinic had on people’s diabetes. After graduating, I hope to be accepted into a residency in a hospital to one day become a clinical pharmacist and possibly a professor at a pharmacy school.
