Commencement 2002: URI pharmacy graduate prescribes music and dance

Commencement 2002 Student Profile of Talent Development Alumna Fiona Boadih.

When she’s not counseling patients or dispensing prescriptions, you may find University of Rhode Island pharmacy major Fiona Boadih practicing her clarinet or dancing the night away.

The Rumford resident graduated from the six-year URI pharmacy program on May 19, and will soon make a scrapbook of all the memories she created from her many extracurricular activities.

She had no experience in dancing, but her parents convinced her to try it as an extracurricular activity, and it apparently came as a natural talent for her.

“It was great! I wasn’t expecting to win because I had just learned the dance,” said Boadih.
