Kalina Korzec is a current third-year student pharmacist from southern Vermont who studies at the Northeastern University School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences in Boston. She currently serves as APhA-ASP chapter president and has previously served as co-chair of the former Generation Rx Committee (now Operation Substance Use Disorders). She is involved in other pharmacy associations including Lambda Kappa Sigma and Phi Lambda Sigma.

Outside of involvement with pharmacy organizations, she holds a commitment to community service and education. She was formerly a member of Peer Health Exchange until its dissolution in summer of 2021, where she taught health workshops to high school students in the Boston Public School system. Currently she is an educator with Boston Health Initiative, an organization that aims to provide health education in the Boston community. She also regularly volunteers at Community Servings, a local non-profit that prepares meals for the medically vulnerable. She is also a Stephen Phillip’s Scholar - an award for students who display academic achievement, a commitment to servings others, a strong work ethic, and leadership qualities.

She currently holds a job as a pharmacy intern at Brigham And Women’s Hospital in Boston where she works in the inpatient and outpatient pharmacies. Her professional interests include academia, advocating for underserved communities, leadership, and public health interests. She intends on pursuing a Health-System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership residency post-graduation. Outside of school and work she enjoys exploring new places, dogspotting and roller skating. She would like to thank her family, friends, and mentors that have offered opportunities for professional and personal growth.
