Scholar Experience

Scholar Profile

Name: Sommer Marissa Barber

Major: Chemistry

Barber, SommerHello, my name is Sommer Barber.  Since leaving the Eagle STEM program, I have pursued a profession in pharmacy and began my education in the pharmaceutical sciences at the Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, SC.  I interned at CVS for the last 3 years and am now on my clinical rotations as a 4th year PharmD student.  Over the course of the last 3 years, I have joined several pharmacy associations such as the Student Society of Health-System Pharmacists, Kappa Epsilon, and the American Pharmacist Association.  However, the organization that I have connected with the most is the Student National Pharmacists Association, where I discovered a passion for advocating and enriching underserved communities.  I aspire to be an ambulatory care pharmacist, where I can provide continuity of care and aid patients in managing their medications and disease states.  I also wish to continue to help communities with poor access to healthcare by aiding individuals in acquiring health insurance and providing resources to help keep the public informed of the affordable healthcare options available to them.
