The Public Health committee is focused on promoting the health and well-being of the Lexington community as well as other communities across the state of Kentucky and the world. Through events such as health fairs, international book drives, the Great American Smokeout, Kick Butts Day, and the annual Be The Match bone marrow drive, we educate and raise awareness of numerous health issues. We are always looking to add new events, as well as to improve past events, and ultimately seek to make a difference in as many lives as possible.

4. What got you into pharmacy and what are your pharmacy interests?
I've always had a strong desire to help people. When I discovered my love of chemistry, I began looking for a field to combine both interests and discovered pharmacy. This way, I'm able appreciate how a chemical structure can confer a medical function, while finding a way to help a patient understand why they need a medication and how to safely take it. I am interested in clinical pharmacy with a specialty focus on infectious disease.
