"After receiving the Dr. Art Jacknowitz AMEN (Advise, Mentor, Empower, Nurture) Award, I became part of a long legacy started by The Jacknowitz's. I am thankful to Mrs. Jacknowitz and other donors for the opportunities they provide students like me. The AMEN award has allowed me to focus less on the financial aspect of pharmacy school and more on making the most of my rotations, preparing for my future endeavors and sharing time with the people I love."
