Meet Your Advisory Board

Amandeep Kaur, Student Director - East
Temple University, PharmD Candidate 2018

1. Why did you decide to run to be a part of the Student Advisory Board?

I decided to run because I wanted to be more involved within the Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association (PPA) while encouraging my peers to be involved. I believe student pharmacists can make a lasting impact on healthcare in our local and national communities through advocacy. PPA has inspired me to pay attention to the current events happening within pharmacy. I want to push these efforts further, working with my fellow students in the SAB and within each local chapter.


2. What are you most looking forward to accomplishing during your term?

I look forward to working with the SAB and the PPA leadership to inspire student to join PPA and other student organizations so they too can experience the everlasting impacting being involved has on professional and personal development. I would like to work with the schools from the East and collaborate on at least one major advocacy event a semester. This is important as we need to inform the public about the impact pharmacists make in disease management and in medication errors prevention.


3. Where do you see yourself in five years?

I am still undecided which area of pharmacy I would like to pursue, but I see myself directly involved in patient care and patient outreach.


4. What activities are you currently involved in?

Currently I am on an elective ambulatory care rotation in Vietnam through Temple University School of Pharmacy (TUSP) and Mercer University. I have also been involved in Phi Delta Chi Pharmacy Fraternity, APhA-ASP, and I serve as a Student Representative on a Self-Study Team on the Curriculum Review Committee.


5. What do you do in your free time?

I think this is a hard one as we have little free time while in school. However, I absolutely spending time with my 6-month-old nephew and the rest of my family. I also enjoy gardening, biking, and traveling.


6. If you could have dinner with anyone (alive/dead, real/fake, ect.) who would it be and why?

I would like to have dinner with all my friends and family. As most student pharmacists are aware, it is challenging to find time for all the things we want to do outside the classroom, and if I could, I would gather my family and friends in one room to enjoy a meal while learning from their life experiences.
