Hi everyone! My name is Michael and I am in my last year of pharmacy school at Wilkes University. I live in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania and I have worked as an inpatient pharmacy technician for ten years at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, Pennsylvania. After graduation I would like to find a job as a hospital pharmacist. I have previously traveled abroad to Spain and France as a part of the study abroad program through Wilkes. On my own, I have traveled to China, Germany, Israel, Japan, Italy, and some Caribbean islands. In my spare time I enjoy spending time at home with my girlfriend, playing with Thea (our puppy), bicycling (over 7000km this year!), playing board games with friends, and reading. My girlfriend is a radiation therapist at Geisinger where she treats cancer patients. My parents live in Danville where my father is a pharmacist and works for Geisinger as well. My brother lives in China where he teaches English to elementary school students. I am very excited to have this opportunity to visit Uganda and meet everyone. I’m interested to see how pharmacy is practiced in other countries.
