Mantua, N.J. resident learns importance of teamwork in quality health care

KINGSTON, R.I.– May 12, 2016– “Health care is always changing, always improving, and there is always someone who knows more about a field,” said Gregory Kelly, of Mantua, N.J., who will earn his doctor of pharmacy degree at the University of Rhode Island May 22.

“So it is hard to be confident in pharmacy, but it in a good way– a way that makes you realize you need other people in the field and hospital,” said Kelly, who is about to complete his six-year program.

“I deeply appreciate the experience I have had at URI, not just academically, but culturally,” said Kelly.

Kelly’s attraction to pharmacy began during his childhood when he was exposed to the field through his family’s friend. That early exposure to the pharmacist’s world made it easy for him to enroll at URI.
