My name is Meghanne and I’m from Lindenhurst, Illinois. I’m 19 years old and a freshman at The Ohio State University. Four years ago, I was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis and Morphea. This, along with my mom’s diagnosis of Breast cancer, has fueled my passion for a career intertwining medicine and service to others. I am currently majoring in Pharmaceutical Sciences, am a STEM EE Scholar, and on the path to graduate in Spring 2018 from Ohio State’s BSPS program. My ultimate goal is to either pursue a PharmD program or a clinical research masters program. I’m excited to be a Buckeye because I was born in Columbus and grew up in Delaware, Ohio with my parents and brother, so it’s nice to finally be back at my home away from home. Go bucks!
