Curist Team Member: Elena Dang
- The University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy
Originally from Houston, Texas, Elena Dang is a current fourth year student at the University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy. As a member of the Research and Strategy Team at Curist, Elena enjoys researching and writing articles about over-the-counter medications to educate the public about various disease states.
Elena’s pathway to pharmacy was unconventional, working primarily in large scale event planning and student leadership development. However, her passion for this work has continued within pharmacy school through multiple leadership positions in the American Pharmacist Association (APhA), Phi Lambda Sigma as Psi Chapter President and as a Prospective Student Interviews Chair, among others.
Recently, Elena presented research at several conferences and has been working to publish papers regarding her honors project. She is currently on clinical rotations and loves working directly with patients to ensure they have the best care possible by using evidence-based practices and guideline mediated therapy.
