Student Spotlight: Harshith Dasara - Pharmecology

From Harshith Dasara:

It has been a pleasure to study pharmacology under the mentorship of Mr. Devendra Patchala, the Pharmacist-In-Charge at American Specialty Pharmacy. I cannot thank him enough for employing me at his pharmacy as a technician trainee, giving me exposure to the atmosphere of a specialty pharmacy, an experience that the typical high school student does not get. He took time out of his busy schedule to accommodate my curious and ambitious self. I was encouraged to go to the compounding lab and directly witness various high profile medications being made and sent all across the nation to patients in need. At the pharmacy, I have gotten in touch with various pharmacists, doctors, and high administrators whom I look up to as role models. All of this was thanks to my amazing mentor, who I am gratefully thankful for.
