Meet Mia Lussier

Chapter: Alpha Mu Chapter (Univ. of Toledo)

About Mia

I am currently a pharmacy student at the Wilkes University Nesbitt College of Pharmacy and Nursing with an anticipated graduate year 2020. I am the president-elect of the Alpha Phi chapter of Lambda Kappa Sigma. When I am home I work at Walsh Pharmacy, an independent community and long-term care pharmacy. At school I work for Geisinger Health as an intern in the Center for Pharmacy Innovations and Outcomes. Outside of school I am a member of the Wilkes University Softball team and I enjoy reading and playing with my dog, Sparkplug. As president-elect I have introduced some new events and activities this year including an etiquette dinner and a entertainment drive for the Janet Weiss Children’s Hospital. I am also working on new events to get our pre-pharmacy students and our alumni more involved. I was unable to attend Convention last year but I look forward to attending this year and meeting all of the other amazing Lambs!

Why did you join LKS?

I joined LKS because going into pharmacy school I didn’t know a lot of people and I wanted to make connections with some of the upper classman. When I met the current Lambs I was immediately welcomed and felt like part of the family. From then on I knew that I could make some amazing new friends and expand my pharmacy network as a member of Lambda Kappa Sigma.

Favorite LKS memory?

My most memorable LKS experience is a sisterhood event we held this month where we all got together to play games and eat food. My favorite part was a game of Kahoot that we played with fun facts about each Lamb that most of us did not already know. It was awesome that we got facts from when the sisters were infants up until now. We are looking to continue to play a “Know Your Lambily” game each year to get to know the new and current sisters better.

Career plans

In the future I would like to go back to school to receive a Masters in Public Health and complete either residency or fellowship training. I am currently pursing internships and will choose APPEs that will help me to narrow down my ambitions to either residency or fellowship. I am currently interested in health outcomes research, ambulatory care, and infectious disease pharmacy.
