“Some benefits of joining NCODA at Washington State University College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences are networking with local professionals and local clinics/hospitals. Being the only oncology focused organization on campus means we have a plethora of opportunities in the community and on campus. This is both beneficial for our city and for our students and faculty.”

– Madison Motzner, PharmD Candidate 2020 at Washington State University



“I have always been interested in oncology but didn’t know where to start. The NCODA chapter at URI has provided me with the knowledge and guidance on how to incorporate oncology into my future long before I am taught oncology in school. Now, as the president of our chapter, I hope I can help students in my school and across the country have the same positive experience.”

– Jason Darmanin, PharmD Candidate 2021 at The University of Rhode Island



“The PSO meetings give me the support I need to lead my chapter and allow me to feel heard within the organization. It’s great to feel connected to national and other student leaders in a way I haven’t experienced in other organizations. I am thankful that NCODA has given Texas Tech pharmacy and nursing students the opportunity to collaborate, connect and learn more about the oncology field in a way not previously offered.”

– Christie Baker, PharmD Candidate 2020 at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center



“Working with NCODA’s PSO has been an amazing experience. The staff at NCODA has helped guide us and has made membership more than worthwhile for our members. They are always willing to help students organize events that strengthen our bonds to our community and fellow members of NCODA.”

– Jacob Dygert, PharmD Candidate 2020 at South University
