The committee is pleased to announce the following NH Pharmacists Association scholarship recipients for 2017:

Emily Seamans - Emily is currently in her fourth professional year as a pharmacy student at the University of Connecticut and will graduate with her PharmD in May! She grew up in Canaan, NH and has always felt New Hampshire is her true home, therefore plans to return here to begin her career upon graduation. During her time at UConn, she focused on a balance between extracurricular activities, volunteerism and academic achievement. Emily was the Treasurer and Captain of UConn’s Club Field Hockey team, held numerous leadership positions with the Big Brothers Big Sisters program, was the president of Phi Lambda Sigma Leadership Society and achieved academic standards deserving of induction into the Rho Chi Society. Through the Urban Service Track she was afforded opportunities to serve urban, underserved populations by promoting vaccinations, dental hygiene and other healthy decisions to community members young and old in the areas surrounding UConn. Emily completed her Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs) at Dartmouth Hitchcock, the Veterans Affairs hospitals in Vermont and Maine, an independent drug store in Georgia, and a rehabilitation facility in Arizona. These rotations exposed her to various patient populations and practice settings and helped her develop into a well-rounded (soon-to-be) pharmacist!

Elizabeth Belanger-   Liz is a second year Pharmacy Student at MCPHS University. She is the President of ACCP, the treasurer of ASHP, and a member of the Rho Chi National Honor Society and Phi Lambda Sigma Leadership Society. Over the past year she has served as a peer enrichment tutor for first year students and, in this role, has thoroughly enjoyed helping others navigate through life in pharmacy school. Throughout her time at MCPHS, Liz has volunteered at the NH Food Bank and Manchester Community Health Center. She is looking forward to beginning her first advanced practice pharmacy rotation this August at Concord Hospital in Concord, NH.  


Ami Diamond -  Ami received her bachelor of arts degree in chemistry from the College of the Holy Cross in 2015. She has served as the vice president for Students Against Prescription Drug Abuse. As a group they worked on increasing awareness of and educating on prescription drug abuse to the local community.  She is a member of Phi Lambda Sigma (Gamma Gamma chapter).  She serves as a board member on the New Hampshire Pharmacist Association. For NHPA she also serves on the education committee.  She serves as the alumni relations coordinator on the board for the Reach High Scholars Program. As a part of this program she mentors and advocates higher education for students attending Raymond High School. For her dedication and service to the community beyond the doors of MCPHS University she received the MCPHS University Community Service Award. 

Congratulations to all recipients!

Morgan Ratte Testimony

NHPA Scholarship Awardee 2013, 2014, 2015

The New Hampshire Pharmacists Association scholarship has provided me with financial assistance, opened the doors for new professional relationships, and intensified the pride I have for my community service and scholastic achievements. I am a four-time recipient of the scholarship, and each year I applied, I was able to share exciting updates with the committee, including my most recent pharmacy service trip to Jamaica, my latest tutoring idea, or how I planned to further my career and become a leader in pharmacy. The committee took personal interest in my completed accomplishments and future endeavors, and often remembered to ask about these achievements and opportunities in follow-up correspondence. The New Hampshire Pharmacists Association has provided me with the opportunity to form relationships with, and learn from, truly influential mentors; this opportunity has inspired me to become the best possible version of myself, both personally and as a healthcare professional.
