University: University of Manchester Degree Course: MPharm Pharmacy Expected Graduation: 2022 Internship: Lungowe plans to complete her summer internship in 2021
Future Ambition: Lungowe’s goal is to educate the people of her country on the effects of using herbal medicine without consulting a health specialist. She hopes to work at the intersection of Pharmacy and Public Health, using the skills she has acquired from her studies to provide education to the public about the adverse effects that some herbal medicines can have on vital organs. Lack of education about the safe use of traditional medicines remains a great challenge in the Zambia and in Africa at large.
