Now for our next Large Item Lottery fundraiser: Dr. Allison Flores!
Introducing Dr. Allison Flores! Dr. Flores, originally from Rancho Cucamonga, graduated on May 13 with her Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of Southern California (USC). As a first-generation college student, she is excited to start her pharmacy career in an ambulatory care residency at USC working in primary care clinics in underserved communities. The sites where she will be working primarily serve Hispanic and African American populations. As a Latina, Dr. Flores hopes to bridge the healthcare gap for underrepresented minorities, and strives to be the needed representation in the Latino community.
Dr. Flores has been involved in research since her time as an undergrad at the University of California Irvine. There she assisted in developing polymers to serve as a method to deliver mRNA. During her time at USC, she was awarded a fellowship with the California Right Meds Collaborative (CRMC), where she focused on quality improvement for patients with diabetes and asthma in underserved communities. She was also one of 10 students selected to participate in the Gehr Student Innovator Award Fellowship Program, where she studied the impact of a pharmacist as part of an interdisciplinary team that manages chronic, uncontrolled hypertension. More recently, Dr. Flores was selected to serve on the National Resident Advisory Committee for the American College of Clinical Pharmacy (ACCP).
PharmGradWishlist is fundraising to help Dr. Flores overcome financial barriers associated with taking the NAPLEX and CPJE and applying for licensure in California, which amounts to over $1,000. Please join us in supporting Dr. Flores as she transitions into her pharmacy career! We are so excited for all she will bring to the profession and the Hispanic community.
