“Dr. Hastreiter has given me an opportunity to work at Walgreens as a first step in pursuit of my goal as a pharmacist. His guidance and feedback, along with the other pharmacists and staff have helped me to learn in a hands-on environment. This experience has been extremely positive for me. It has solidified my desire to be a pharmacist.”
