Prosperity Eneh is pursuing her Doctor of Pharmacy Degree at the University of Minnesota-College of Pharmacy with an expected graduation date of May 2017. She is a graduate of the University of Minnesota Twin Cities where she earned a Bachelors of Arts degree in Biology, Society and Environment. She is originally from Nigeria.
Ms. Eneh has been involved in various leadership roles over the course of her professional education and has gained invaluable experience in the process. As she continues along with her professional development as a Center for Leading Healthcare Change (CLHC) fellow, she strives to be an engaged student, committed to growth as a leader in the profession of pharmacy.
She has been involved with the Phillips Neighborhood clinic (PNC) since her first year and is currently one of the board members serving as the Operations Chair. This community outreach program has been such an amazing avenue to have an impact on the lives of the people the clinic serves.
Furthermore, Ms. Eneh served on the executive board for the Multicultural Pharmacy Student Organization (MPSO) and also as their representative on the College Board assembly. She was the International Pharmaceutical Student’s Federation president and student exchange officer responsible for organizing various public health campaigns on issues that affect people all around the world such as HIV/AIDS, diabetes and Tobacco cessation. As part of this role, she was also charged with hosting international students that visited Minnesota for an internship program, as well as preparing students in Minnesota that would like to visit other countries for the same exchange program.
Ms. Eneh is also a member of the Phi Delta Chi Professional Pharmacy Fraternity through which she has had various opportunities to be engaged with the profession and serve the community.
Ms. Eneh is passionate about learning and is also very enthusiastic about watching others learn. She is currently the Tutoring Center Coordinator for the College of Pharmacy Twin Cities and a Teaching Assistant for Pharmacokinetics. She previously served as an educational consultant with the University of Minnesota’s Multicultural Center for Academic Excellence (MCAE). She provided tutoring and mentoring to undergraduate students that visited this academic center. She worked with the students helping them achieve their learning goals as well as served as a mentor for the students that aspired to enter the healthcare field. Most of the students she mentored were minority students and one of her goals was to inspire them as aspiring healthcare professionals to believe in themselves and in their dreams. She provided study tools and advised on strategies for applying to their program of choice.
Outside of the College of Pharmacy, Ms. Eneh works as a pharmacy intern at Wal-Mart Pharmacy and Recover Health. In both job positions she has worked alongside pharmacists in providing medication therapy management (MTM) services to patients. Upon graduation, she plans to enter an ambulatory care residency program. Ms. Eneh desires to be in a program that also offers leadership development as part of its curriculum. She hopes to learn about implementation of MTM in community and outpatient pharmacies.
She sees her time here in the United States as a great learning opportunity, and is taking full advantage of this by aligning her experiences and involvement in such a way as to gain valuable skills and tools essential for her career plans and development. She aspires to utilize all these skills in the future when she returns to her home country. She plans to create a model of pharmacy that is not available in her country as of now that encompasses the rich nature of Pharmaceutical Care. Pursuing her career goals will be very challenging but very exciting and she sees a lot of potential to impact many lives.
