Power to End Stroke Chair
Kiara Fairman is a 3rd year pharmacy student at the University of North Texas System College of Pharmacy in Fort Worth, Texas. She received her B.S. and M.S. from Alabama State University and University of Texas Southwestern, respectively. Ms. Fairman was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV with her mom and two brothers.
Kiara was first introduced to SNPhA during her P1 year by interviewing a hospital pharmacist who spoke about the service aspect of the organization. Since there was no SNPhA chapter on her campus she decided to start one. During her year as president, Kiara worked diligently to establish events and programs for the underserved communities. She also aimed to increase involvement and increase membership. One of her most memorable events was the PTES Soup Kitchen Blood Pressure Screening which the previous chair, Anh Dao Lee, made a national service event. Thus, with the previous PTES chair's template, Kiara plans to continue promoting blood pressure screenings at soup kitchens, American Heart Association involvement, and national awareness days. Furthermore, she will encourage collaboration with other initiatives to have joint events such as health fairs, walks, and more. For all of SNPhA's P.I.E.C.E.S to come together, Kiara believes that this year's presidential theme is essential. Thus, we must make sure that we Empower our Patients through Inclusion, Education, and Service to make the Community a better place.
When not involved with SNPhA, Kiara participates in other organizations, such as ASHP, ACCP, and Phi Lambda Sigma, in varying capacities. She is a member of Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. She enjoys drawing, eating, and playing soccer or any other competitive sports.
