Health and medicine are always evolving, what is a recent development in the area in the area of health/medicine?
There was a new therapy that was recently approved for breast cancer treatment by the FDA. FDA officials have approved alpelisib (Piqray, Novartis) tablets, to be used in combination with the endocrine therapy fulvestrant, to treat postmenopausal women, and men. It is important to understand that health and medicine are constantly evolving.
Where do you think the future of pharmacy is going?
I personally believe that pharmacy in the traditional sense, behind the counter at a retail location, is going to change dramatically in the upcoming years. I see pharmacy as a dynamic area of study and the push for pharmacists in clinical settings is increasing. Along with the potential for clinical development, the increasing use of technology in conjunction with healthcare is pushing pharmacy toward the area of telehealth.
Being able to communicate effectively through written word is a skill that is necessary for all areas of study. What is the hardest thing about writing for you?
Before I got to college I struggled with grammatical errors and punctuation. My papers all showed evidence of run on sentences, vague pronoun references and incomplete comparisons. Tired of the read marks on my essays I vowed to improve grammatically and I purchased a grammar manual. The manual along with advice from fellow writers and instructors assisted me in becoming a stronger writer.
