Pharmacy Major Damola B.

“I have two majors. My major is pre-pharmacy, and the second one is clinical science. The reason why I love pharmacy, I chose that major, is because over time, I’ve been in the science and the medical field, and I’ve found that I love to care for patients and client, however, I think more about the effect of all these medication in their body, why is it not working, so I ended up deciding to go for that career because knowing the particular medication for a client or for the patient is better, makes them healthier.”
