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?
After undergrad, I worked in the chemistry lab at AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals for 2 years. I really liked the industry aspect of pharmacy, but I wanted to make more of a direct impact on patients, so I decided to earn my Pharm.D. Eventually, I'd like to work with a long term disease state on both an individual patient level and also a public health level.
