Kusaka wins CSHP Student Leadership Award

Melissa Kusaka, a fourth-year student pharmacist at the UCSF School of Pharmacy, will join a peer from each pharmacy school in the state as she receives a 2010 Student Leadership Award from the California Society of Health-System Pharmacists (CSHP) at the society's annual meeting October 21-24, 2010, in San Francisco. The award recognizes pharmacy students' involvement in and contribution to CSHP and the profession of pharmacy. Kusaka has been actively involved in everything from the Science Squad, which teaches science to elementary school children in San Francisco, to the UCSF student chapter of CSHP, for which she serves as president.
