PILLS SIBLING Spring 2020 Application

SIBLING (Sharing Information By Leading, Inspiring, and Nurturing Growth) is a one-on-one mentoring program between PILLS members. The program is designed to bring about a much more personal environment for PILLS members, to create a sense of camaraderie with fellow pre-pharmacy students, and to harbor lasting relationships between upperclassman and underclassmen peers. This program differs from PhRENDS in that it focuses primarily on forging bonds between experienced PILLS members and newer PILLS members looking to learn more about pharmacy. Apply here to be a mentor/mentee today!
