Thanks today to Traci Newcomb, a pharmacy student at Eshelman School of Pharmacy for our student guest post! Traci is the first in her family to go to college, let alone pursue doctorate levels studies towards becoming a pharmacist. She felt there were some unique insights, struggles and value that first generation college students bring to the table as pharmacists and pharmacists in training.
