Public Relations Liaison
Justin Bui is a 3rd year Doctor of Pharmacy and Master of Business Administration dual-degree student at SUNY-University at Buffalo Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences in Buffalo, New York. He graduated from the School of Management’s LeaderCORE program, which strengthens the development of leaders personally and professionally. Prior to his graduate career, he was a California resident and was raised in the hub of the Silicon Valley, San Jose and has always been fascinated with technology and the impact of social media. He received his Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from University of California – Davis.
Coming into his first year of pharmacy school, he saw early on that his values aligned with the Student National Pharmaceutical Association and has not looked back. He served his local chapter as an Operation Immunization Co-Chair, President-Elect, and President, which he attributes to developing his passion for the organization. One of the challenges his chapter faced was its inability to gain visibility and a presence within his school and community. While the organization was just as active as other organizations, his chapter found itself traditionally flying under the radar. He wanted to address this challenge and consistently came up with innovative ways to broadcast and expand the SNPhA brand within the School of Pharmacy. He established various media platforms for his chapter and created monthly Snapchat filters to raise awareness for meeting days. He was also given the opportunity to be active on the National level as a member of the National Public Relations Committee. Justin’s enthusiasm and passion for SNPhA helped him get nominated as a finalist for the JB Hillis Chapter President of the Year award. Justin is also involved in his community as a proud member of Lambda Kappa Sigma and a Dean’s Student Ambassador.
In his spare time, he is almost always either playing sports or following his two favorite teams: the Dallas Cowboys and New York Knicks. He welcomes anybody to convince him that those are not the two best sport franchises in the world. When he is not relentlessly cheering on his favorite teams, he enjoys trying new foods with his buddies, traveling, and practicing photography.
Justin is honored for the opportunity to serve this organization as the National Public Relations Liaison. His vision is to develop a brand that falls in line with our Presidential Theme of Connecting the P.I.E.C.E.S., while still staying true to our two values of Service and the SNPhAmily. He plans on focusing the spotlight on our chapters and our members this upcoming year. He looks forward to seeing what you all, individually, as well as collectively, as a SNPhAmily, are able to accomplish this year.
