On May 18, the Doctor of Pharmacy Class of 2013’s degrees were conferred at the Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences Commencement Ceremony. Before they left to embark on new beginnings, they didn’t forget to leave a mark; they gifted the School with a a piece of stained glass art.
“After speaking to many of my classmates, we wanted to provide a gift to the School that would be long-lasting and memorable. We hope the gift will enhance the beauty of our campus and remind future students of how lucky we are to be at Pacific,” said Han Duong ’13, class president.
The class of 2013 follows a long tradition of class gifts. Throughout the years, classes have contributed benches, a barbecue station, a bronze tiger, and more.
When asked to use one word to describe her class, Duong said “inspirational; the diversity of this class did not separate individuals, but instead, the diversity brought innovation and creativity.”
To name a few accomplishments, forty graduates from the class participated in the Medicare Part D outreach events which provide free health services to nearly 4,000 individuals. A total of 13 outreach events in 5 different cities were conducted.
Duong will be doing a Post-Graduate Year 1 (PGY-1) Residency at the NorthBay Healthcare Facility in Fairfield, CA and pursuing her interest in critical care.
