Peter graduated in 2016 with a BS in pharmaceutical sciences, and is currently enrolled in the doctor of pharmacy/master’s in business administration (PharmD/MBA) dual degree. Born in Queens, NY and raised in Nigeria, Peter knew the need for better health care and how it would impact many lives in our communities.

As a Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) alumnus, he showed dedication in creating a pathway for the less privileged and giving them the inspiration to achieve a higher education. Peter was a campus health educator who collaborated with UNYTS to campaign on the need for organ donation. He also furthered his experience by interning at Good Neighbors Health Clinic at Harvest House, where he managed workflow and the day-to-day activities of the clinic. He also worked on collecting health and demographic data that supported the organization’s submission of a grant proposal.

Peter believes the WNY Prosperity Fellowship has opened his eyes to the virtues of Western New York. As a PharmD/MBA student, he sees resources and opportunities here for a startup. His journey to this point in his career wasn’t an easy one, and the Prosperity Fellowship still gives him the reason to keep pursuing his dreams of becoming a collaborative practice pharmacist in Western New York.
