Alexandria Ybarra, a fourth-year student at the School of Pharmacy’s Abilene campus, was elected the Phi Delta Chi (PDC) south central regional correspondent at PDC’s 71st Grand Council Meeting Aug. 1-5 in Washington, D.C.

As a regional correspondent, Ybarra will be responsible for all communication between PDC’s national office and the 11 chapters that comprise PDC’s south central region. The TTUHSC School of Pharmacy has two chapters: the Beta Rho chapter, founded in 1999 on the Amarillo campus; and the Gamma Eta chapter, founded on the Abilene campus in 2009.

“Alex makes the fourth TTUHSC student, and third in a row from the Gamma Eta chapter to hold this position,” Assistant Professor Chephra McKee, Pharm.D., said. “I believe this reflects very well on our school as a whole. We are very proud of Alex and wish her the best in this new position.”

The Phi Delta Chi Pharmacy Fraternity seeks to advance the profession of pharmacy by developing leaders. As a lifelong experience, Phi Delta Chi promotes scholastic, professional and social growth in its members and strives to provide quality services to patients, thereby advancing public health and strengthening pharmacists’ roles as health professionals.
