4 Days to Go: Hello, my name is Lizzie Cook. I am currently in my final year of pharmacy school at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania and I also serve as a pharmacy intern at UHS Wilson Medical Center. During my college career I was extensively involved in community outreach programs serving the indigent population, as well programs targeted towards enhancing the education of the local youth. I grew up as a military dependent and lived in Germany for almost ten years, where I was afforded the opportunity to travel to multiple European countries. This lifestyle, combined with the training I have received at Wilkes, has spurred my enthusiasm for potentiating patient-centered care on a global scale.
In my free time I enjoy hiking, skiing and spending time with my family. Following graduation, I will be pursuing a pharmacy practice residency that allows me to explore the fields of Drug Information, Geriatrics and Internal Medicine. My ultimate goal is to become involved in academia where I can augment the education of future pharmacy students, so I am especially excited to collaborate with individuals at the Makerere University School of Pharmacy.
