Please Welcome Reham Okab Our Student Pharmacist for the Month of September.

Reham Student September 2022

This month, we are joined at Plain City Druggist by Reham Okab, a fourth-year pharmacy student from The Ohio State University’s College of Pharmacy.

Reham will graduate in May 2023 with her PharmD degree and will then take the test to become a registered pharmacist. Reham will be with Tayler and the gang here in Plain City throughout September, so please stop by and meet her while she is here.

Here is what Reham tells us about herself:

Hello! My name is Reham Okab. I’m a fourth year pharmacy student at The Ohio State University with past experience in chain pharmacies. I  am a Palestinian American who grew up in Lexington, Ohio.

My interest in pharmacy began from hearing stories about my grandfather who owned an independent pharmacy in Palestine. Although he passed away 20 years ago, people till this day talk about his impact on the community. It’s a special feeling hearing stories about him from strangers every time I visit Palestine.

Pharmacists are easily accessible health providers. I find this unique to the profession and it further sparked my interest in the field.

In practice, I enjoy the patient interaction and compounding medications.

Outside of pharmacy, I enjoy cooking and spending time with my family. Growing up, I spent many days in my father’s corner store. Something about family owned independent businesses feels like home to me. I’m looking forward to seeing this at Plain City Druggist.

In the future, I would love operate an independent pharmacy or work in compounding. Regardless of what I end up choosing, I strive to have a positive impact on my community just like my grandfather.
