Elizabeth wandling



Elizabeth Wandling is a final-year student pharmacist at Cedarville University School of Pharmacy in Cedarville, Ohio and is originally from the small town of Davenport, Washington. She has been heavily involved with the American Pharmacists Association-Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP) on both the local and national levels serving as the International Vice-President of her chapter for two years and as the National Project Coordinator on the International Standing Committee for the 2019-2020 term. 

During her time in pharmacy school, Elizabeth was highly involved with multiple APhA-ASP initiatives including OTC Medication Safety, Operation Diabetes, Operation Immunization, and Operation Heart. During her term as the International Vice-President, she hosted two students through the Student Exchange Program where the program was held uniquely during the beginning of the school year to increase the engagement of the students at Cedarville University and provide a well-rounded experience for those participating in the program. Outside of APhA-ASP, she is also involved with Phi Lambda Sigma, the Student College of Clinical Pharmacy, and as a student representative on multiple committees within the School of Pharmacy. In her free time, she enjoys baking, cooking and exploring the great outdoors. 

After graduation, she hopes to pursue a PGY1/PGY2 residency in Health System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership where she desires to combine her passion for clinical pharmacy with working collaboratively with teams to empower pharmacists to best take care of patients. Eventually, she wants to apply her leadership and clinical skills on a global scale to partner with health systems in multiple countries to make evidence-based decisions that improve the health of the patients in the community. She also wants to work with the pharmacy leaders focused on global health to optimize pharmacy services and create innovative solutions to the problems faced in healthcare today.
