Medicine with a personal touch
What do you get when you combine a passion for medicine with a heart for the people of Africa?
You get Chris Kulczar — a Purdue graduate student who's ready to use his knowledge to help improve the lives of families here in the U.S. and across the globe.
When he was a student in high school, Chris lost his mother to melanoma. He says that devastating loss led to his interest in pharmaceutical manufacturing.
Chris says he enjoys working with the Sustainable Medicines in Africa program to help move Africa closer to self-sufficiency in the manufacture of medicines and the achievement of true independence.
"The hope is that by giving people knowledge and proper training, some of the issues can be mitigated," Chris says.
