Natchez-Adams School District's October 2019 Spotlight Alumnus is Xavier Hill

Bachelor's of Science (B.S.) in Chemistry from the Xavier University of Louisiana in New Orleans, LA in 2015

Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) from Creighton University School of Pharmacy and Health Professions in Omaha, NE in 2019  

Currently:

I am completing a Postgraduate Year 1 (PGY-1)  general pharmacy residency at CHI Health Creighton University Medical Center - Bergan Mercy

PGY1 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.

What's next:

I plan to complete a Postgraduate Year 2 (PGY-2) pharmacy residency in infectious diseases and become a  board-certified infectious disease pharmacist (BCIDP). After my training is complete I plan to work in a hospital as an infectious disease pharmacist and work with physicians to treat patients with infections.

Message for students today:

“I am proof that a small-town kid can make a big dream come true. All it takes is hard work and determination.”
