Please Welcome Anna Rader Our Student Pharmacist at Happy Druggist on Karl Road.


This month, we are joined at Happy Druggist on Karl Road by Anna Rader, a fourth-year pharmacy student from The Ohio State University’s College of Pharmacy.

Anna will graduate in May 2024 with her PharmD degree and will then take the test to become a registered pharmacist. Anna will be with Kristie and the staff on Karl Road throughout the coming year as a Partners for Promotion student, so please stop by and meet her while she is in the pharmacy.

Here is what Anna tells us about herself:

My name is Anna Rader, and I am currently a fourth-year pharmacy student at The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy.  As a part of my final year, I am involved with the Partners for Promotion program with the goal to expand patient care services at Happy Druggist. I look forward to learning more about independent pharmacies throughout the year.

I graduated from OSU in 2019 with my Bachelors of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences, but I have known since graduating high school that I wanted to pursue pharmacy. I started working at CVS in July 2015 and I have been there ever since. Over the years, working as both a technician and an intern, I have a detailed understanding of how community pharmacy works. CVS has also given me the invaluable patient care experience that I will take with me throughout my career. I thoroughly enjoy community pharmacy, being able to build relationships with patients and see their progression over time.

I have not had much exposure to independent pharmacy, but I am excited by the opportunity to learn more about independent pharmacy compared to retail chains.

After graduation, my current plan is to complete a residency in Ambulatory Care and eventually become an Ambulatory Care pharmacist. I want to explore the different ambulatory care options, but right now I am interested the most in internal medicine.

Outside of pharmacy, I love to go to movies and spend as much time as possible with my family. I have a 7-year-old sister who I can’t get enough of. Our favorite thing to do together is go to Johnson’s Ice Cream for a treat!
