On October 8, 2018, the Lambda Kappa Sigma (LKS) Alpha Pi chapter honored Women’s Pharmacist Day by hosting a postgraduate education panel and question-and-answer session featuring six alumni sisters who pursued different pharmacy career paths. Panelists had experiences in fellowship, residency, nutrition, MBA, and administration. The event, which was open to the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences community, was attended by more than 58 students.
This year’s panelist were Daniella Antolos '17Pharm.D., PGY-2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Resident at VA Hudson Valley Health Care System; Jackie Chirico '16Pharm.D., Pediatric Pharmacy Operations Manager at Montefiore Children’s Hospital; Samira Duja '04Pharm.D., Pharmacy Supervisor at Mercy Medical Center; Jacquline Mullakary '11Pharm.D., BCACP, CDE, Clinical Pharmacy Manager on the Population Health team at Mount Sinai Health Partners; Lisa Patel '08Pharm.D., MBA, Director, Global Contact, Content, and Insights at Pfizer, and Nicole Zimmerman '17Pharm.D., GRECC Palliative Care Pharmacy Fellow at James J. Peters VA Medical Center.
The sisters of the Lambda Kappa Sigma Alpha Pi chapter hosted a dinner on April 6 to strengthen bonds between alumni and collegiate sisters of the chapter. During the event activities were organized to allow participants to mingle and learn more about each other.
Another goal of the event was to perform service together. Collegiate sisters and alumni members created hygiene kits for the homeless population by filling bags with travel-size shampoo bottles, tissues, toothbrushes, and similar items and sealed the bags with a personalized note.
