Madison Clark

Power to End Stroke Co-chair

My name is Madison Clark and I was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. After graduating from the University of New Mexico in 2017 with a degree in biology, I decided to move to Texas to start my pharmacy career at UHCOP.

As co-chair for the Power to End Stroke initiative, raising awareness about stroke is my top priority. Through health fairs, volunteering events, seminars, and continuing our partnership with the Houston Aphasia Recovery Center, we will be able to make an impact on our community across many populations and empower them to take charge of their health and reduce their risk of stroke.  

Why did you choose SNPhA?    I chose to join SNPhA because their mission, serving the underserved, really resonated with me. SNPhA provides students with the opportunity to make an impact on the Houston community in areas where it is needed most. Being from New Mexico, one of the most underserved states in the country, I know the importance of educating the community and providing health screenings for those who may not normally have access to it, and SNPhA is the outlet that lets me do that.

Why did you choose SNPhA?    Besides being a great organization, SNPhA also acts as a family, where members all work in synergy to improve SNPhA everyday. Additionally, SNPhA offers vast number of opportunities such as seminars, educational workshops, health fairs, etc. for developing one’s pharmacy professional and personal skills, which will allow its members to evolve into great leaders. SNPhA focuses on the unfortunate and underserved community which I am very passionate about. I am excited to serve as your Power to End Stroke co-chair this year.

Power to End Stroke Co-chair

My name is Anh Tran. I recently graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Houston in 2018. Currently, I am a P2 student at the University of Houston College of Pharmacy. My pursuit for pharmacy originated from my first-hand experiences with the limited and inefficient healthcare system of Vietnam. Personally, I consider Vietnam to be very dear to my childhood and family and wish to utilize my knowledge, empathy, and skills to give back to my community.

As your Power to End Stroke co-chair, I want to continue collaborating with the Houston Aphasic Recovery Center and the Loaves and Fishes Soup Kitchen for volunteering events and health fairs. Moreover, I also want to participate in the AHA Heart Walk in November. I also wish to continue our tabling events at UH, at middle schools, and high schools to raise the community’s awareness of cardiovascular events, such as a stroke and heart attack.
