Nashville, Tenn. — April 17, 2024 — The Tennessee Pharmacists Association (TPA), the only professional association representing pharmacists in all practice areas across the state, is pleased to announce the selection of Carolina Davis as its first executive intern in association management.

Davis is a second-year student pharmacist at East Tennessee State University’s Bill Gatton College of Pharmacy. During the 12-week executive internship program, Davis will gain experience in professional association management, exposure to the professional and educational issues confronting the pharmacy profession and strategies to help, and an advanced perspective of multiple areas of pharmacy practice.

“TPA is excited to welcome Carolina as the association’s inaugural executive intern in association management,” said TPA CEO Anthony Pudlo. “Carolina displayed remarkable initiative throughout the selection process, and her involvement with TPA’s Tennessee Society of Student Pharmacists emphasizes her dedication to advancing Tennessee pharmacy.”

Before her selection as TPA’s executive intern, Davis served as a pharmacy technician, peer tutor, and frequent volunteer for pharmacy-related public health events and clinics.

The TPA Executive Internship in Association Management is a competitive annual program at the TPA office in Nashville, Tennessee, supported by the Tennessee Pharmacists Research and Education Foundation (TPREF).
