Ila M. Saunders, PharmD, BCOP, co-founder and leadership team member of the #PharmGradWishList interviews Ja’Miera Stuart, PharmD, #PGWL sponsee and winner of a large item crowdfunding campaign to support moving and relocation expenses to begin her PGY1 pharmacy residency.
Dr. Stuart has been interested in a career in pharmacy since high school when she began pre-pharmacy coursework. As a graduate of Florida A&M University, Dr. Stuart truly embraced the role of the pharmacist as a healthcare practitioner and ambassador. During her involvement in Student National Pharmaceutical Association, Dr. Stuart rallied and amplified the voices of underrepresented minorities. Now, Dr. Stuart began her career and continued her education as a pharmacy resident at Howard University Hospital, serving a pivotal patient population in the DC metro area.
Dr. Stuart is grateful for the generous outpouring of support from the pharmacy community who have and continue to help her achieve her goals and aspirations. She remains passionate about supporting opportunities, like those she has received, to continue diversifying pharmacy and healthcare.
