Dr. April Henson received her Doctorate of Pharmacy from Chicago State University College of Pharmacy. April was born and raised in the small town of Lufkin in the great state of Texas, but migrated to the city of Austin to further her education. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development and Family Sciences from The University of Texas at Austin in May 2009.
April is a charter member of Alpha Epsilon Lambda Graduate and Professional Honor Society at CSU and is also a proud member of Phi Lambda Sigma Leadership Society, Rho Chi Academic Honor Society, and previously served as the Vice President of the Class of 2015. Of all the commitments she has made however, Student National Pharmaceutical Association is her main focus. April was introduced to SNPhA in 2006 as a pre-pharmacy student at UT Austin. It was her initial gateway to the profession of pharmacy. Roles that she has played in the organization include serving on the publicity committee, Chair of Professionalism committee, Chapter Delegate, Chapter Vice President, Chapter Corresponding Secretary and immediate past National Recording Secretary. Outside of school, she is a member of New Life Covenant Church Southeast of Chicago where she serves underserved populations through the Medical Ministry and Urban-to-Global Missions team. In her spare time, April enjoys traveling, spending time with friends and family, watching football (it is a TEXAS thing!) and has a guilty pleasure of reality television.
April was honored to serve as a member of the national board this past year and is truly grateful to return for a second term as your National Recording Secretary. Her main goal for the year is to fine tune the Chauncey I. Cooper (CIC) points process to enhance its functionality both locally and nationally. This streamlined approach will permit a smoother transition process from year to year and allow for more efficient and effective communication overall in efforts to fulfill our new presidential theme: "Stabilize Our Foundation to Solidify Our Future".
