After settling into the hotel, 46 students representing 46 different pharmacy schools from across the nation gathered together and sat at round tables. There was a faculty leader also seated at each table. Table 5’s faculty leader was Hannah Fish. Hannah recently graduated from the University of Toledo College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and now works for Pharmacy Quality Alliance. She was very well spoken throughout our discussions and encouraged us to really take advantage of the experiences we were going to have the following day on Capitol Hill.
There were seven other students, including myself that sat at Table 5. Here is a picture of us all together! They represent pharmacy schools from Michigan to Alabama back to Massachusetts.
Our first day consisted of a few speakers and then some role playing to practice what we were going to say the following day on The Hill! Read on to learn more about the different speakers!
