Besides Mackenzie and Moe, who are student pharmacists helping at Plain City Druggist this month, we also have a student pharmacist for the month of August at Happy Druggist on Karl Road. Jeff Pitts is from The Ohio State University’s College of Pharmacy and will be graduating in May 2019. Please make sure you stop in and meet Jeff this month.

Here is a bit more about Jeff in his own words:

My name is Jeff and I am a fourth-year pharmacy student at The Ohio State University, expecting to graduate in the spring of 2019 with my PharmD. In 2015, I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry from Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts. During my undergraduate studies, I had jobs at three pharmaceutical companies as an organic chemistry intern where I primarily worked in a lab synthesizing novel organic molecules.

I grew up in a blue-collar family in Taunton, Massachusetts where my dad worked as a truck driver and my mother raised my younger brother and me. Growing up, my parents always stressed going to college so we would not have to work long hours at a physically demanding job. They always stressed finding a career.

After completing my third internship during my junior year at Northeastern, I decided that I wanted to pursue a career that would give me the opportunity to work with patients and have a more direct impact on their care.

For the past two years, I have been working as an inpatient pharmacy intern at Nationwide Children’s Hospital where I work in the emergency department performing medication reconciliation along with assisting pharmacists during code and trauma situations. My career goal in pharmacy has always been to complete a two-year pharmacy residency program. Over the last year, I have grown to develop a passion for critical care and emergency pharmacy.

In my spare time I like to be active, whether that is going to the gym to work out, playing or watching hockey, or exploring Columbus.

I am excited to be here at Happy Druggist Pharmacy during the month of August where I will gain crucial experience working in a community pharmacy along with interacting with the many amazing patients that visit the pharmacy every day. I look forward to meeting you!
