Hello! My name is Jennie Smith and I am in my fourth and final year of the Doctor of Pharmacy program at Wilkes University. I am from Hummelstown, Pennsylvania and currently work for CVS/Pharmacy. As a pharmacy student at Wilkes, I have been an active member of Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association, American Pharmacists Association, Lambda Kappa Sigma, and Phi Lambda Sigma. I enjoy being a member of these organizations and advocating for the profession of pharmacy. Besides pharmacy, another passion of mine is music. I have been playing the violin for about 15 years. I also love traveling to New York City whenever I get a chance to see a show, try a new restaurant, or just explore the city. Prior to this trip, I have not done much traveling outside of the United States. I have been to Canada and the Caribbean on family vacations. I am so excited for this trip to Uganda! I chose to participate in this trip because I am interested in public service and learning about healthcare on a global level. I am also excited to meet new people and try new things! Thanks for joining us via this blog as we begin our travels to Uganda.
