About Forrest:

My name is Forrest and I am currently in my fourth and (hopefully) final year of pharmacy at the University of Newcastle. I am currently an Executive Director on the NAPSA board looking after the aspect of student-led research. I have been in the roles of the Secretary and the Vice-President at my home branch UoNAPS (University of Newcastle Association of Pharmacy Students).

I have had an interest in research and have therefore participated in and won the 2021 NAPSA student poster competition. From this, I will try my best to successfully run the following poster competition for congress 2022. I also hope to continue to develop the student-run academic journal produced by former Executive Juliet Contreras and Research Chair, Verity Boustead). I hope to use this platform to provide students with the opportunity to grow their knowledge and experience in research.

To me, research is very important and forms a basis for growing our knowledge on medications. As a result, it provides healthcare workers with evidence-based therapies. I look forward to working with my fellow NAPSA executive members to help provide pharmacy students with great opportunities and super fun experiences.
