I, KarenBeth Bohan, am an Associate Professor of Pharmacy Practice at Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre, PA where I’ve taught for 11 years.  Prior to entering academia, I practiced for 15 years as a pharmacist in numerous settings and roles.  Most recently, I was an Antimicrobial Stewardship Pharmacist at Geisinger Health System in Danville, PA. and before that I was the Director of Pharmacy at Shamokin Area Community Hospital in Shamokin, PA.

On a personal note, I have the most supportive husband in the world and together we have 3 wonderful children!

    Hello KarenBeth,

    Great job!

    I just randomly discovered your online blog about the practice of pharmacy in Uganda. I want to commend you for your passion in the profession, and especially for your openness in sharing your skills and knowledge with the people of Uganda

    I’m a Pharmacist in the US with experience in multiple practice settings, including hospital, ambulatory, long term care and academia.

    I was in Uganda for the first time in December 2105 and had a chance to visit Makerere school of Pharmacy and Mbarara University Pharmacy School. The situation on the ground was so touching that I came back to the US with a pledge to myself of going back to Uganda as often as I could in order to help contribute to the profession out there in any little way possible.

    Glad to know you’re doing just that, and based on your very grounded experience in Uganda, I’ll like to get some more insights about the practice out there, and the different ways through which I could be of help while out there.

    Thanks for all you do!

      Hi Robert- Thanks for reading. If you’d like to talk more about Uganda and ways to get involved, email me at kbohan@binghamton.edu. My next trip leaves in just 13 days and I’ll be blogging about it starting today. Do you have another trip planned yet? Regards, KarenBeth

    That is so wonderful of you Robert. We at Mbarara University of Science and Technology, Pharmacy school would indeed be privileged to share in the learning. We are always open to getting new insights into becoming better pharmacists.
