KGI School of Pharmacy’s Founding Class to Be Honored at Traditional White Coat Ceremony on Saturday, August 23
Date:8/7/2014

Clarremont, CA (PRWEB) August 07, 2014

On different continents, the young lives of Flavia Nagujja and Caroline (Jung Eun) Kim were deeply affected by childhood illnesses stemming from medical error or lack of information. Kim is a survivor of Reye’s syndrome. The rare but serious condition, linked with aspirin use in children with viral infection, causes swelling in the liver and brain. As a baby, Kim developed Reye’s syndrome and lapsed into a coma. As a result, she was put on a respirator which damaged her windpipe. She was only able to breathe normally?without the aid of suction machines and an artificial windpipe?after she traveled to Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh for surgery to reconstruct her windpipe. Approximately 8,000 miles away in the Sembabule District of Central Uganda, a 9-year-old Nagujja suffered temporary paralysis as the result of an incorrect dosage of medicine given in an injection.

“It only took a few minutes before I could not walk or feel my leg on the side the injection was given. It took two years of therapy to be able to walk again,” Nagujja said.

Both Kim and Nagujja say those early experiences were catalysts propelling them to pursue careers in pharmacy. And, on Saturday, August 23, both young women will take part in a White Coat Ceremony (WCC) recognizing them as members of the founding class of the KGI School of Pharmacy. Students entering a four-year PharmD program traditionally receive white coats ? a symbol of clinical service and care ?to welcome them into the profession as colleagues dedicated to patient care.

“This is a very exciting time to be entering the pharmacy field,” KGI President Sheldon Schuster said. “PharmDs are breaking into new areas of practice in industry and regulatory affairs and, at the same time, many PharmDs are playing a much greater role in direct patient care.”

In addition to President Schuster and School of Pharmacy Dean Dr. Kathy Web
