I’m back with the GlamNERD of the Month for March 2010. Ladies and Gents I give you my beautiful friend
Dr. Chinenye Anyanwu.
What's up fellow GlamNERDS. I am an American born Nigerian, one of seven children, was born and raised in The Bronx, NY. I’ve had a catholic school education, St Raymonds Elementary School and St Raymonds Girls Academy. My interest in Chemistry in high school led me to pursue a degree in pharmacy at the University of Connecticut. As a city girl the transition to the sticks of UCONN wasn’t easy, but I managed by staying active in student organizations. The Student National Pharmaceutical Assoc (SNPhA) was an org that I was introduced to early in the game that showed me the importance of community service and serving the underserved. Since then the two have become my passion and what I have dedicated my career to. After 6 LONG years, I graduated with my doctorate in pharmacy and moved on to pursue a Masters in Public Health from the George Washington University in Washington DC. I chose to pursue this degree to make myself a more well rounded clinician and to become familiar with the causes of health disparities, and strengthening my role in eliminating them. I will be completing my first year of the MPH program at the end of the spring. In addition to this, I currently work as a pharmacist for Walgreens and am preparing for a clinical pharmacist residency program.
Our paths crossed at UConn, she was working on a Pharm D and I on my first Masters. We didn’t get to hang out that much while we were in school. However, a host of “get togethers” and good times with mutual friends have linked us and I'm so very grateful to be connected to such excellence. She’s brilliant, grounded and committed to sharing her talents and skills to remedy health disparities across the world. I love her and I know her successes in life will be remarkable to say the least. I admire her tenacity, her motivation and her fab sense of style. She’s a cool kid with out a doubt. She’s been a supporter of the blog since day one and I’m honored and ecstatic to present her to you as our GlamNERD of the month. Look forward to hearing from her soon.
Till Next Time We’re Still in Constant Pursuit of All Things Fabulous,
