"I chose LMH partly because I wanted to stay close to family during my residency year. Little did i know, the PEOPLE at LMH would become my family! I am forever grateful to have had such a supportive and knowledgeable group of mentors to learn and grow from during my time at LMH; and I know they will continue to support me throughout my pharmacy career. The culture at LMH and the experiences I gained have not only prepared me for my career ahead, but have also shaped the way I practice pharmacy. I could not be more proud to say I am an LMH residency alumni!
