Angela Olenik receives the APhA-ASP Student Leadership Award
The award will be presented to Ms. Olenik, at the APhA-ASP Awards Ceremony during the APhA Annual Meeting and Exposition in March. The award recognizes four students across the nation who demonstrate leadership within APhA-ASP while maintaining academic excellence.
Ms. Olenik was nominated by Dr. Brett Feret, advisor of URI’s APhA-ASP Chapter, for her involvement in the organization. She joined APhA-ASP as a freshman at URI and is currently the Chapter President. Ms. Olenik has worked to expand the chapter’s patient education campaigns and professional development programs. Her enthusiasm and passion for the profession has also taken her to leadership positions beyond that at the local level. She was the Midyear Regional Meeting (MRM) Coordinator for the 2010 MRM in Providence and successfully organized one of the largest meetings the region has seen. In addition, Ms. Olenik was appointed to the Crendentials Committee for the 2011 APhA Annual Meeting and Exposition.
Ms. Olenik credits her success to the support she has had from friends, family, and mentors who got her involved in APhA-ASP. She is thankful for the recognition and looks forward to receiving the award this March.
