Uganda Countdown- 3 hours until Take-off

April 1, 2016: Introductions Continued

Casey

 Hello all, my name is Casey and I am currently a P4 student at Wilkes University. Prior to this trip I have visited the Bahamas twice, once when I was 12 and my most recent trip was 2 years ago. I am participating in the Global Health experience in Uganda to learn more about health care in general and also to broaden my horizon; I am aware that I have not been exposed to much. By going on this rotation I hope to become an overall better pharmacist who will be more knowledgeable of my patient’s cultural background. I also hope to gain more confidence while on this rotation. I have struggled throughout APPEs with building my confidence but have found that when I am pushed out of my comfort zone I tend to succeed better. I am originally from Shamokin, Pennsylvania. For fun I like to attend country music concerts, go running, cook, and I also like to clean.

Kassi:  

 Hello! My name is Kassi and I am a PharmD candidate from Wilkes University. I have worked in various pharmacies for almost 8 years and I have experience at an independent pharmacy and with CVS. After graduation, I am going to be completing a PGY-1 residency at Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento Medical Center beginning in June.  I have previously traveled abroad as a part of the study abroad program at Wilkes and I spent about 4 weeks in Europe, mainly in Madrid and Paris. I participated in a service trip to Costa Rica in high school and I have vacationed in Canada and several islands in the Caribbean. In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with my friends, traveling to new places, watching TV shows on Netflix, and spending time with my family and my 2 cats. I also enjoy community service and volunteering.  I am very excited to be going on this adventure with my peers and professors. I am going on this trip because I am deeply passionate about pharmacy, serving the public and travel. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I feel greatly honored to be able to participate in this experience.
