In the News Former Health Center Patient Returns as Pharmacist

Kim Tran first encountered Community University Health Care Center as a small child in the early 1990s when her family immigrated to the U.S. from Vietnam. Her experiences at CUHCC inspired her to pursue a career in health care: she is now a PharmD and on staff at CUHCC. Many of you also heard her tell her story at the October 2015 Many Faces conference. Read her story here. For more health center news, visit our "News & Events" tab.
