Pharmacy Students Ready to Travel Part 4

Read on to learn about the 4th and final student who is accompanying me to Uganda in just 1 week. I can’t wait!

In Australia, Summer 2011Hello, my name is Ben and I will also be traveling to Uganda with the Wilkes University Global APPE.  I saw this as a great opportunity to travel and interact with another culture and be able to take a good look at our profession.  It is my hope that I gain a real appreciation for the work that we do, but also gain experience that will help me in the future.  While in school at Wilkes University, I have been active in Student Government, E-mentoring, APhA (American Pharmacists Association), and focused research on the cost/benefit analysis of placing a pharmacist in a primary care setting.  I have a great deal of passion in improving quality and reducing costs in not only pharmacy but health care as a whole.  Like Melissa, after pharmacy school I will serve as a pharmacist and Captain in the United States Air Force.
In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, working with my hands, and am exploring my abilities in barbecue having built my own meat smoker.  I have traveled through all but 13 of the United States (Alaska has been my favorite thus far), I have participated in study abroad programs in Australia and Europe.  I look forward to our upcoming safari and hope to share our experience with future students to go on this experience.
