Laurie Plewinski (PharmD ’21) has been appointed to serve a second term as chair of the American Pharmacists Association Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP) National Communications Standing Committee for 2020-2021.
She is one of only six student pharmacists from across the country selected for the Communications Standing Committee.
As chair, Plewinski will help develop communications for social media, email, printed publications and online resources to distribute to student chapters across the country.
“Thanks to the networking offered by APhA-ASP, my fellow student pharmacists have had much success in acquiring fellowships, residencies and dream careers,” she says. “I know that APhA-ASP is setting me up for my dream career, too.”
Plewinski became involved with APhA-ASP as a first-year student pharmacist, where she served as Regional Member At-Large for Region 1, which includes all schools of pharmacy from eight northeastern states.
The mission of the APhA Academy of Student Pharmacists is to be the collective voice of student pharmacists, to provide opportunities for professional growth, to improve patient care, and to envision and advance the future of pharmacy.
