Bridging the Gap Chair
Dr. Nancy Edwards attended Chicago State University (CSU) College of Pharmacy where she received her Doctorate of Pharmacy degree. Nancy was born and raised in Austin, Texas to which her parents migrated from Nigeria in order to provide a better life for her and her 3 siblings. Prior to pursuing a PharmD in Chicago, IL, she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development and Family Sciences with a focus in Early Childhood from The University of Texas as Austin. She has been involved with SNPhA since her pre-pharmacy years and served as the CSU SNPhA President during the 2013-2014 school year. Previous roles served within the CSU SNPhA chapter include Chapter Delegate and Chapter president-elect. In addition her pervious leadership experience include: CSU Class 2015 Vice President, CSU Class 2015 Liaison and CSU Professionalism Committee Student Advisor. She is also a proud member of Phi Delta Chi Pharmaceutical Fraternity, Phi Lambda Sigma Pharmacy Leadership Society, Rho Chi The Academic Honor Society, as well as Alpha Epsilon Lambda Graduate and Professional Honor Society. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with loved ones, going shopping, traveling, dancing, watching movies that include dancing. Every other minute not spent completing tasks is spent watching YouTube, especially tutorials about hair and makeup!!! Her happy go lucky spirit makes meeting new people by far one of her greatest enjoyments. SNPhA is near and dear to Nancy’s heart because it is one of the few organizations that truly makes you feel like you’re apart of a family. SNPhA plays such a significant role in her life that she is determined to bring the same passion, drive and commitment into the National Pharmaceutical Association (NPhA) upon graduation. As the National Bridging the Gap Chair, Nancy plans on utilizing this role to ensure that SNPhA continues to increase the amount of graduating students that transition into NPhA as well as continue to expand on the interprofessional relationships that have previously been established. Nancy is really excited about this role and is looking forward to upholding this year’s presidential theme: “Stabilize our Foundation to Solidify our Future”.
