NHA is pleased to announce the recipient of the Spring 2018 NHA Career Bridge Scholarship, Julie Pham, CPhT.
Julie earned her pharmacy technician certification (CPhT) by passing the ExCPT after completing health sciences courses at West Potomac Academy — a school that offers specialized health sciences, communication & the arts and human services courses for highly motivated students from approximately 20 area high schools in Fairfax County, Virginia.
Julie will receive a cash prize of $1,000, which she plans to use to help support her continuing education on her journey toward becoming a pharmacist. She will also receive a career counseling session and an opportunity to "pay it forward" by giving $500 to her allied health training program — West Potomac Academy — to assist with clinical supplies and resources for the classroom.
This scholarship seeks to reward recently NHA certified allied health professionals, who go above and beyond to help others while pursuing their certification, bridge the gap between certification and the next step in their career.
