Where Did April Go?!

Hello Readers,

I can’t believe it’s already May 1st!!! The last time I wrote was just after APhA, and so much has happened since then, but unfortunately the arrival of Spring was NOT one of them!!! But fingers crossed, it shall come soon enough (or we can skip straight to Summer!).

A couple of the big things that DID happen:

The Melendy Lecture that is put on by college board: Dr Brooks Jackson, dean of the med school and VP of the Academic Health Center came to talk to us about his work with neonatal HIV prevention in Uganda. After the lecture, a few of us had the pleasure of meeting with Dr Jackson in a smaller group setting. It was so interesting to hear about his research, but also to get the opportunity to ask questions about other things related to pharmacy and medicine and it’s future. If this sounds like fun to you, I’ll just go ahead and put in my plug: Be a College Board representative through a student group and you can have this opportunity too!!!

Campus Swap: It happened to fall on what I modestly refer to as the most wonderful day of the year, my birthday! Campus Swap was a fun opportunity to meet more of my Twin Cities counterparts and also reconnect with the new friends that I made in Florida at APhA. Also, an iTV birthday song led by Dr Undeberg was quite possibly the best (and most embarrassing) thing ever! 

And tomorrow is PHARMACY DAY! Yet another good chance for some intercampus mingling and fun. Hopefully the weather pans out for tomorrow. (I’m really done with this cold weather..)

Before I know it, it will be time for finals and then “summer” if that season still comes to Minnesota! Take care readers. Try to stay dry and (hopefully) I’ll write again soon!
