Meet Our Student Pharmacist for October, Tracey Dowdell.

We have a new student pharmacist for the month of October. Tracey Dowdell is a fourth year student from The Ohio State University’s College of Pharmacy. She’ll be with us all month giving flu shots, talking to patients, and helping Bob compound in the lab. Please stop in and make Tracey feel welcome.

Here is what Tracey has to say about herself:

“My name is Tracey Dowdell. I have been working in a pharmacy for the last 7 years. I am from Norton, a small town that many people have not heard of near Akron, OH. In this small town, I began my pharmacy career. I was employed in a pharmacy where I was inspired to become a pharmacist and pursue an eight year doctorate degree. I was inspired to help people while working there and I have never lost that inspiration.

“The most rewarding thing that has ever happened in my career was a patient giving me a hug and telling me ‘thank you’ for going above and beyond to help her with various things. This meant the world to me, because I was rewarded for great service in a way that no boss or supervisor ever could reward me. I left that day with such great confidence and determination to become a pharmacist that I changed my major. I chose this profession to better myself as a person, to constantly help the community, and to continuously challenge myself.

“My future plans in this exciting career are to stay working in community pharmacy where I can become close with my patients, not only as their trusted pharmacist, but also as their friend and confidante. I hope to be the pharmacist who can provide answers to important drug questions, advice about every day health, recommendations about non-prescription alternatives, and an open, compassionate ear for my patients. I want to know how my patients’ lives are, not only inside the pharmacy, but also how their lives are outside of the pharmacy. I have come to realize that my patients will teach me more than a text book ever could and I cannot wait to continue learning from them. I am excited and honored to be a part of the amazing profession of pharmacy and look forward to all of the amazing things to come in my life.”
