Lani Kotyrba

University of Manitoba, 2nd Year

Education (Prior to pharmacy school): 4 years towards a B.Sc. in Microbiology with a minor in German (105 out of 120 credit hours)

Hobbies & Interests:

I host a show for the University of Manitoba’s campus radio station (UMFM 101.5), so I love all kinds of music. You’ll probably find me at a few different music festivals this summer.

Position Goals:

  1. Organize a fun and innovative Pharmacist Awareness Month
  2. Get the rest of our student body involved in the pharmacy events we have throughout the year
  3. Advocate for the profession

Career Goals:

I’m not entirely sure which avenue I’d like to explore just yet, but I’d like to keep my options open – whether that leads me to community or hospital practice, maybe even research! I’m up for anything at the moment.
