Aisha Shokoya, a third-year pharmacy student at Palm Beach Atlantic, recently was awarded one of 40 annual Tylenol Future Care Scholarships.
The scholarships, which carry awards of up to $10,000, recognize students focusing on health care careers who have exhibited excellence in leadership, community involvement and academics. They also have shown a personal calling to caring for those around them.
Shokoya founded the Precious Women organization, which strives to support women and girls around the world, and took part in a medical mission to Uganda in 2015. She also is president of the pharmacy school's American Pharmacists Association, Academy of Student Pharmacists; membership benefits chair of the Student National Pharmaceutical Association chapter; and liaison of the American College of Clinical Pharmacy chapter.
Shokoya also serves on the boards of the Florida Society of Health-System Pharmacists Membership Affairs Council and the Florida Pharmacy Association Educational Affairs Council. She is a member of Rho Chi, the honor society for pharmaceutical students.
