Two pharmacists graduate from residency program
Greater Lawrence Family Health Center (GLFHC)/MCPHS University graduated two pharmacists from its one-year advanced pharmacy training program in June.
Vivian Nguyen has joined the team at GLFHC. She will be working a hybrid position, as both a clinical and a staff pharmacist, to help out patients in every way she can.
Mai Yakota will return to her home state of California. While searching for full time employment she will continue to act as a bridge between pharmacy education in the United States and Japan. Yakota was recently selected as a presenter at a pharmacy education conference in Japan.
“While navigating an unusual residency year amid the pandemic, Mai and Vivian remained eager and flexible and willing to take any opportunity they could,” said Alexia Sroka, Pharmacy Residency Program Coordinator. “Beyond the required experiences Mai and Vivian participated in numerous vaccination clinics and brought genuineness and spirit to the workplace.”
The pharmacy residency program at GLFHC is hosted in partnership with MCPHS University. Earlier this spring, the program accepted two new residents, who began on July 6.
GLFHC has six pharmacies in Lawrence, Methuen, and Haverhill, which are open to the public.
