Pharmacy Technician Student Spotlight Awardee: Su Su Htun

Pharmacy Technician Student SpotlightBay Area Medical Academy’s Pharmacy Technician instructor, Linda Madsen was recently proud to select Su Su Htun as her Student Spotlight Awardee for Fall 2018.

The award is given to a student for outstanding scholastic achievement and excellence.

So let’s find out a little more about Su!

“I came from Burma (Myanmar) on May 2018,” says Su. “I have to work here, and I want to work in healthcare. I have a Bachelor’s Degree from my mother country. I asked my friends who work in the medical field about where to study and they all recommended Bay Area Medical Academy to me. Some of them had already finished the school’s Phlebotomy and Medical Assisting classes and are now working at a hospital.”

Su was drawn to studying to become a Pharmacy Technician because she recognized the impact pharmacy has in people’s lives. “As for me, I thought that pharmacy medicine is also important to save the life of a patient. It’s important to deliver the right drug in the right concentration at the right time. During my days attending the Pharmacy Technician Program, I’m understanding more about how to translate physician prescriptions and how to work accurately.”

Congratulations, Su!
