2 Days to Go:  Hello! My name is Stacy Prelewicz and I am currently a PGY-1 (post-graduate year 1) Pharmacy Practice Resident at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center in Pennsylvania. I graduated with my PharmD from Wilkes University last year. Throughout school I interned at both CVS, a large community pharmacy, and Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center. I was also involved in Phi Lambda Sigma – The Pharmacy Leadership Society, Pharmacy Senate, and student government. I grew up in a small town right outside of Wilkes Barre. Next year I will be participating in a PGY-2 Pharmacy Residency in Hematology/Oncology at Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City, Utah. My primary related interests include hematology, supportive care, and ambulatory care so I hope to eventually work in one of these areas.

I also have a passion for global health and advancing pharmaceutical care. This will be my second trip to Uganda! I gained so much knowledge and experience from the trip in Fall 2013 and I was ecstatic when I found out I could go back this year for a mini rotation. One of my favorite things to do is travel! I love going site seeing, trying new foods (although I am not too adventurous), and anything outdoors. I also enjoy playing tennis and watching ice hockey. I am really excited to go back to Uganda this year to work with Benjamin Mwesige, Pharmacist, at the Uganda Cancer Institute and see all of the students and pharmacists I met during my first visit!
