Please Welcome Our Student Pharmacist, Andrew Myers, for the Month of November at Happy Druggist in West Jefferson.

IMG_2731

This month at Happy Druggist in West Jefferson, Paul and the gang are joined by Andrew Myers, a fourth year pharmacy student from The Ohio State University’s College of Pharmacy.

Andy will graduate in May 2020 and will then take the test to become a registered pharmacist.  Andy will be in West Jefferson throughout November, so please stop by and meet him while he is in the store.

Here is what Andrew tells us about himself:

Hello, everyone! My name is Andrew Myers and I am a fourth-year pharmacy student at The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy.

I grew up in a small town, Limestone, NY, about an hour and a half south of Buffalo. I have attended The Ohio State University for all my college studies, receiving my bachelor of science (B. S.) in pharmaceutical sciences and now seeking my PharmD.

I have been around healthcare for my entire life, as my mother was a nurse and my father was a volunteer EMT when I was a child. I was always intrigued by health and found it particularly interesting how our lives can be changed by giving someone something as small as a pill.

When I first arrived at OSU, I was interested in pursuing drug development and discovery. I wanted to work at finding the next big medication to improve public health. After my first two years, I realized that this route was not for me, as I did not enjoy working in a lab. From there I started working as a pharmacy technician and fell in love with the environment. I have always been a people person, so the pharmacy profession gave me the opportunity to build those relationships and help people.

My passion in pharmacy now is focused around profession advancement, particularly via legislative advocacy. I have spent a lot of my school years outside of the classroom focused on how to engage legislators to utilize pharmacists more efficiently to care for patients. Pharmacists are such an important piece of the healthcare team that, in my opinion, are underutilized and can impact patients in a direct way. We see our patients, know them, their children, and parents, and build relationships. 

In a healthcare system where so many people are left behind, I want to take the time and make sure everyone is on the same page. As we continue to drive our profession forward, these opportunities will become more prevalent and we can really work to take care of our patients.

Outside of pharmacy, I am passionate about sports, music, history, and politics. I am a huge tennis fan (Roger Federer will be my favorite athlete until I die), and I also love football and hockey. 

I enjoy a variety of genres of music. My all-time favorite band is Rush and I have been lucky enough to see them three times in concert before Neil Peart retired. I also love Mumford and Sons and August Burns Red.

I am very interested in politics and history, particularly the Revolutionary War period. In an era like today where politics are so polarizing, I enjoy thinking about where we started and how that can relate to now.

I look forward to meeting you all during my month at Happy Druggist Pharmacy!
