Outreach

There are ample opportunities to integrate research and teaching to give back to the community. 

I believe that it is my responsibility to give back not only to the profession (through research), but also to the community (through outreach).  In my work as a graduate research assistant, I have had the opportunity to assist patients at Medicare Open Enrollment community outreach events.  During my time as a PharmD student and later as a staff pharmacist, I also volunteered at multiple community outreach events.  I would love to continue such outreach events and be able to give back to the community as part of a career in academia.
