Pharmacy BC’s Bob Rai as the UBC Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences Graduation Representative

June 15th, 2016

We were so proud that our own Bob Rai was invited to join the UBC Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences Graduating Class of 2016 ceremonies! Bob had the honor of being in the Chancellor’s Procession and shake hands on the stage when the graduates received their diplomas at the gorgeous Chan Centre of Performing Arts as the Faculty of Pharmaceuticals Sciences Alumni Representative. Bob was also given the opportunity to give a speech at the Dean’s Luncheon that followed. PharmacyBC is proud to welcome this new class of graduates into the field, and we wish them the best of luck with their future careers!
