Student Pharmacist: Shannon Brown

Program: Doctor of Pharmacy and Master of Science in Public Health Dual Degree

 Undergraduate Experience:  Ferrum College, Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and Health Sciences, 2015

Personal & Professional Experience:

During my time at Campbell, I have become very involved in student organizations and active in the community. I also worked at Rite Aid Pharmacy as an intern and I am currently a pharmacy intern at CVS Pharmacy. Through my classroom and work experience, I have gained a better understanding of how to best serve our rural community members, many of whom have limited access to healthcare and other amenities. I am passionate about serving the community and Campbell has given me the opportunity to network and collaborate with several organizations including the Harnett County Animal Shelter, Hopes for Haiti Foundation, Campbell University Community Care Clinic, North Carolina Harm Reduction Coalition, Snead’s Ferry HOPE, and local Girl Scout troops. By gaining a strong education at Campbell, and continuing to be actively involved in our community, I continue to grow as a leader and strive to understand and apply my knowledge from the classroom to care for family, friends, and the community.

What’s Next?

After graduating from the Doctor of Pharmacy/MS Public Health dual degree, I hope to pursue a pediatric residency in Virginia or North Carolina.

Accomplishments, Strengths, and Passions:

I am the President of the North Carolina Association of Pharmacists and Co-Chair for the Student Pharmacist Network between the four pharmacy schools in North Carolina. I am the Vice President of both the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society and the Phi Lambda Sigma Student Leadership Society, the Chair of the Generation Rx Committee for the American Pharmacist Association, the Service Chair for the Pharmacy Student Executive Board, a brother of Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity, and a member of the Student College of Clinical Pharmacy and Student Society of Health-System Pharmacists. My leadership roles have helped me establish opportunities for students to become active in the community and network through guest speakers, volunteering, and service. I have also had the opportunity to establish relationships with students from other pharmacy schools and collaborate on events such as the student portion of the NCAP Annual Convention and Flu Be Gone.
