Pharmacy students speak out at regional meeting
Fourteen TTUHSC School of Pharmacy student members of the American Pharmacists Association-Academy of Pharmacy Students (APhA-ASP) represented the school at the APhA Region VI Midyear Regional Meeting Nov. 4-6 in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Krisgel Padolina, a third-year (P3) pharmacy student on the Dallas/Fort Worth campus and TTUHSC’s student chapter president, said the group was engaged at each session. Some stepped up to the microphone to address the room during an open session to discuss resolutions.
“Alexandria Ybarra (P3-Abilene) serves as an excellent regional delegate” Padolina said. “She exuded poise and confidence as she stood before the student body during the open session. She represented our school well.”
The TTUHSC School of Pharmacy group included five first-year (P1) students. Abilene P1 Ervin Lopez ran for regional delegate, and though he wasn’t selected, Padolina said Lopez described it as a valuable learning experience and he is making plans to run for a Region VI position next year.
“Overall I think attending the meeting was a success,” Padolina said. “The P1s realized just how exciting policy can be.”
Other students who attended included Abilene P1s Kelsie Basso, Justin Langreck, Viktoria Guttenberg and Nicole Asonganyi; Amarillo P1 Mimi Xuan Ngoc; Amarillo P2s Alex Parish, Christian Tulio, Samer Hadrous, Arsany Gadallah and Erica Dominguez; and Abilene P3 Tegan Jacobson.
