TIMMY DO “A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim is fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.” – Lao Tzu

Passing of the Torch Epsilon Mu Regent 2013 February 15, 2013, was a monumental day in Epsilon Mu history. Apart from filming our own take of the “Harlem Shake”, this day also marked a more professional occasion: the annual passing of the torch of leadership. On this day, Timmy Do left his position as historian of the Epsilon Mu Chapter of Kappa Psi to take on what he stated as “the most important leadership position he will hold.”

assigned leadership positions as chairs/co-chairs, the newly established newsletter and publications committee, field day, an annual kickball tournament, individualized officer emails, and an annual Chapter retreat. Each of these innovations were set in place to further develop the Chapter.

Prior to his decision to undertake the position of Regent, Timmy had never taken a When questioned about the future of the presidential position.

“I met a good group of Brothers that inspired me to lead.” With limited leadership experience, why did Timmy aspire to run for the position of Regent? He says, “I met a good group of Brothers that inspired me to lead.” Timmy’s two greatest influences in his desire to become the next Regent of the Epsilon Mu Chapter were first, his position as historian within the Chapter, and second, his Big Brother, Tien Nguyen, the Immediate Past Regent of Epsilon Mu. When Timmy decided he wanted to become Regent of this Chapter, he began to take more duties upon himself. When it was time to plan conclave, Timmy went out of his way to get more involved. Since stepping up as Regent, Timmy’s leadership skills have developed at an exponential rate. For example, his leadership experiences as Regent have honed his delegation skills, time management skills, organizational skills, and communication skills. In giving advice to Brothers and future leaders of the Epsilon Mu Chapter, the newly elected Regent stressed the importance of knowing

“Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results, not attributes.” -Peter Drucker your Chapter and its members, to be aware of everyone’s strength, and to use this knowledge when picking chairpersons. He also stressed prioritizing, “When it comes down to it, at times you will just have to put Kappa Psi first.” Timmy would like to challenge his fellow Brothers to be the best Brothers they can be and to continue to challenge other Brothers around them. Most importantly, he emphasized to have courage when seeking advice from other members of the Chapter. Timmy is currently enjoying his new role within the Chapter. After the year is over, he states that he will still be an active member and give aid when necessary. He would like to look back on this year and have no regrets.

WINTER CONCLAVE The 2013 Southeast Province Spring Conclave hosted by the Brothers of Delta Upsilon was one for the history book and an exceptional follow-up to the Winter Conclave that Epsilon Mu hosted last year. Upon arrival and a cordial exchange of pleasantries, Brothers went out for a night on the town at Roxy’s Rooftop Bar. Brothers enjoyed socializing with old friends as well as meeting new ones. The next morning began with a business meeting, which spotlighted the activities of each Chapter. Brother Marvin Smith’s pledge development talk, as well as the ensuing discussion, enriched Brother and Chapter development. Following a brief intermission for lunch, it was back to business again.

KRISTY MAZALEWSKI

JULY 8, 2013

“Don't strive to make your presence noticed, just make your absence felt." -James MacDonald

The first Female of Epsilon Mu Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity Inc. is the oldest and largest professional pharmacy fraternity in the world since 1879, yet almost an entire century elapsed before the admission of female Brothers was permitted in 1977. Marge Piercy once said, "a strong woman is a woman determined to do something others are determined not be done."

Kristy Mazalewksi was the first female to ever join the Chapter of Epsilon Mu. She is a woman whose confidence came from experiences and a women who knew she could fall, pick herself up in the worst of times, and move on without fear. Kristy was not a woman to be underestimated. She kept up with the guys. Being that Kristy had the courage to stand as the only girl to pledge alongside 15 other guys, her legacy will forever empower women to join the Epsilon Mu Chapter. As a result of Kristy setting the trend for all females, the Epsilon Mu Chapter is now currently comprised of roughly 33% female.

Kristy was born into a family of healthcare providers. Her mother and step father are licensed pharmacists; her brother, Bob, is a physician's assistant; her brother, Bill, is studying to be a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine; her sister, Chelsea, is studying speech pathology; and her biological father, who began his career as a licensed pharmacist is currently practicing as a Medical Doctor. At the age of 11, Kristy attended "bring your child to work day" with her mother and thought that all her mother did was count pills. "People would always ask me what I wanted to be when I was older. I told them I didn't know, but I definitely didn't want to be a pharmacist." As Kristy grew older, she was able to see a different side of pharmacy. "I realized that my mom helped people, and that’s just what I want to do. I want to help people." For Kristy, pledging under Dr. Marvin Smith was absolutely terrifying. Marvin had set many goals for the Alpha class but his primary purpose: To make the Brothers better people than they were before. “My favorite memory will always be when we were formally initiated into Kappa Psi." This day signified the end of the pledging process. All of our hard work had finally paid off, and we could officially say we were the Brothers of the Epilson Mu Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity Inc." "Pledging as the only female was definitely a challenge, especially when it came to interacting with the pledge Brothers I didn't know very well." Prior to pledging, Kristy was close to Brother Matt Woeber. "Matt was my very first friend in pharmacy school. I remember sitting next to him at the College of Pharmacy orientation table on the first day of school and finding out that we were both from New Port Richey, Florida. " Kristy wanted more than anything to be accepted by her line brothers, but she knew that she had to accept whatever came and fearlessly give the best that she could give. "Being a Brother of Kappa Psi has inspired me to be engaged in the profession and has given me the courage to step up and be a leader, not only in other organizations but as a pharmacist.”

very year, student pharmacists from all over Florida gather at the state capital to raise awareness and advocate for pharmacy legislation. On March 12th, 11 Epsilon Mu Brothers took the 3-hour trip from Orlando to Tallahassee for Florida Pharmacist Legislative days. This opportunity allowed the Brothers to mark their presence as student pharmacists and ensure that their voices were heard regarding critical issues facing the profession. Legislative Days provides student pharmacists the opportunity to bring relevant matters to the attention of legislators during floor debates and committee hearings on bills concerning healthcare. Student pharmacists are given the chance to meet face-to-face with individual legislators to discuss pressing topics and ideas in the profession of pharmacy. In addition, students are able to participate in an extravagant health fair in the Capitol. The health fair is open to the public as well as members of the House. The goal of the health fair is not only to allow pharmacy students to

interact with lawmakers but also to demonstrate the scope and capabilities of pharmacists as health care professionals. This year’s Legislative Days were particularly exciting for the Brothers of Epsilon Mu being that during the fall of this year, Brothers James Love and Joel Rivera introduced a petition to allow student pharmacists to administer vaccines under the direct supervision of a licensed pharmacist. With efforts throughout the UF College of Pharmacy and Kappa Psi, the petition received over five hundred signatures from student pharmacists, pharmacists, nurses, and other various healthcare professionals all throughout the state of Florida. As a result of his efforts, along with Brother Rivera, Brother Love was asked to present the bill during Legislative Days. Currently, the bill has not been adopted however,

Brother Love declares that he will still continue to advocate for student pharmacists to have the ability to immunize under the supervision of a licensed pharmacist.

Epsilon Mu is proud to have Brothers that are taking an active role in advocating for the future of their profession. Currently, Epsilon Mu is working to discover more ways to support the Florida Pharmacy Association as well as other advocacy organizations.

BRANDON HUANG

“Lads and lasses, because life passes come fill your glasses for another round.” -The Tossers

The 4th year pledge of Epsilon Mu Q: When did you know you wanted to pursue a career in pharmacy? “I knew that I wanted to pursue a career in pharmacy during my undergraduate education when I was lucky enough to get a position in a pharmacy at Target. It was not a planned change, but a position became available as a technician. After talking with the pharmacist there and reading more about the pharmacy field, I became interested in the lifestyle and ability to assist others.” Q: What are your plans for the next couple of years? “I am currently engaged to be married in 2014 to Letha James, a woman I had the luck to meet during my last year in pharmacy school. My next couple of years will include traveling with her and continuing my education through postgraduate education in the fields of economics and consultant pharmacy. Children will be in my future, but that is more likely on a 5 year plan.” Q: What made you decide to join Kappa Psi as a 4th year pharmacy student?

!

“Kappa Psi was something I was interested in from the beginning of my pharmacy education; however, the by-laws at the time did not allow for distance campus chapters. During my fourth year, I was approached by Jeremy Lund and Karl Healy about joining. They had taken the steps that allowed the formation of the Epsilon Mu chapter in Orlando. The promise of brotherhood and the potential to help give back to the university also sparked my interest.” Q: What challenges did you face pledging while on rotations? “The greatest challenge to pledging during rotations came from attending meetings and social functions with my Brothers. I chose a demanding rotation schedule and that meant that I slept very little while attempting to complete everything. Thankfully, with the help of my Brothers, I was able to accomplish everything that I needed to and pledge successfully.” Q. What involvement have you had with the Orlando Grad Chapter?

Q: What interesting stories do you remember as a pledge? “Many, though there are some things that will always remain between pledge Brothers and me.” Q: What legacy will you leave behind with the Epsilon Mu Chapter? “I’m not sure what legacy I leave behind, but I would hope that it is the desire for every Brother to achieve the most that they can professionally and to always strive for something that may seem unobtainable no matter the challenge.” Q: What has being a Brother done for you and how has it shaped you into the person you are today? “Being a Brother gave me a solid connection to the future of pharmacy. It gave me a way to pass on my experience and learning to others of like minds. It also engendered in me an appreciation for the power and help that a like-minded community can provide.”

“With the grad chapter, I have served as treasurer and secretary during the formation of our Chapter.”

KAPPA PSI/ KAPPA EPSILON KICKBALL Kappa Psi and Kappa Epsilon joined forces to host this year’s kickball tournament. Dominick Curry and Jacqueline Mark led the event held at Magnolia Park near the the old Apopka campus. The drive and the view left many upperclassmen reminiscing. After everyone trickled into the park, Jay Hazelcorn rehearsed the rules, foreshadowing what was sure to be a grueling tournament. The ball got rolling immediately after two teams were drawn from a hat. Hidden talents were exposed as the teams faced off. For example, Seung Pyo was revealed as the venus flytrap of kickball. With a name that says it all, “The Ball Busters” won the kickball tournament with high velocity service bombs, terrific catches, and sprints to home base. The tournament was “balls of fun” and provided valuable time to bond with fellow classmates. All leftover food was donated to the Nemour’s Children Hospital.

!

The kickball tournament wasn’t the only time this year that Kappa Psi and Kappa Epsilon came together! Danielle Bley and Jacqueline Mark organized a picnic at Moss Park. It was a beautiful day for a friendly match of volleyball and a lovely way for the Brothers of Kappa Psi to get to know the Sisters of Kappa Epsilon.

The 1st Regent of Kappa Psi Epsilon Mu Q: What was it like being the first Regent of Epsilon Mu? “It was an honor and a huge challenge. The Alpha class wanted to make Epsilon Mu unique, which meant I wasn't able to rely on other Brothers like Marvin for guidance on a lot of material. I've learned as much about myself as I have about my fellow Brothers and how to lead.”. Q: How did you get the Chapter started?

Q: What are your plans for work and family now that you have graduated? “I am doing a PGY1 residency at Lee Memorial hospital. I think I will do a PGY2. I want to be like Harry and Marvin and be in administration. As for family, I do not know what the future holds for me yet.” Q: What Graduate Chapter are you joining?

“It's scary to think my role within the Chapter has diminished to a legacy. My legacy is determined by the Brothers that wear my letters and hopefully are better pharmacists and Brothers than I am. Becoming a Brother has shaped every facet of my being.”

The success of the store is achieved through the help of volunteers and donations from various big name companies such as CVS, Aramark, Chick-fil-A, Frito Lay and many more. With the donations of these companies, the food and products from the bank is continuously being supplied to those most in need and with the help of volunteers.

"Nothing great in life is ever accomplished without enthusiasm."   -Chad Johnson “Our chapter was formed because of the enthusiasm for something better.” -Joel Peterson

Q: What are your plans for work and family now that you have graduated? “The next step for me in my career is a challenging residency at the Orlando VA Medical Center. I could not be more excited and enthusiastic about what the future holds for me with the VA. Even more exciting is the future I am starting with my family at home as we are expecting our first child, a boy, in June. Family has always been the most important component of my life and having a child to guide through the world is something I genuinely look forward to.” Q: What Graduate Chapter are you planing to join? “Since I will be based in the Orlando area for the next year and potentially much longer, I have been in contact with the Orlando Graduate Chapter. I have worked with Orlando Grad throughout my collegiate career and know that they are capable of great things. Epsilon Mu would not be where it is today without their help and sacrifices.” Q: What are some of your favorite memories from being a Brother?

!

During our third year of pharmacy school, many Brothers were feeling burnt out with all of our studies and preparations for rotations. Some friends and I had been playing slow-pitch softball every Thursday for the past several years. Playing softball had always been a great stress reliever for me and a nice break from the monotony of lectures and studying, so I formed a team that consisted mostly of Epsilon Mu Brothers to play every Thursday. It was a competitive league, and we had a lot to learn; but you could see the Brothers grow each week, and we always had a great time. Each Brother brought something unique to the team. Karl Healy is a passionate leader and boosted team morale like no one else could. Doug Brown is an athlete who dominated our shortstop position and kept us in the game. Jeremy Lund brought a unique batting style and humor to the team. Nam Nguyen, though a quiet guy, always put his heart and soul into the game. Mikel Forero, who still plays on my other team to this day, is my go-to outfielder, has grown into a great player, and always has a positive attitude. Other Brothers came out as well: Richie Waithe, Joel Rivera, Michael Walsh, Jacob Flanagan, Ryan Walters, Tri Bui,

and Jay Hazelcorn. Playing ball with these Brothers was something I looked forward to every week.” Q: What legacy will you leave behind with the Epsilon Mu Chapter? “I hope that the collegiate Brothers continue to pursue accountability to each other and responsibility of the Chapter. These traits were what I felt were most important during my time as treasurer and I always tried to build upon these qualities.” Q: What has being a Brother done for you and how has it shaped you into the person you are today? “Looking back on my academic career, I really could not imagine where I would be now if Kappa Psi and Epsilon Mu had not been a part of it. My time as an officer of Epsilon Mu and being surrounded by the highest quality of Brothers allowed me to become a much better leader and definitely brought out the best in me. The friendships that we formed are irreplaceable and will only continue to grow as we enter the 'real world'.”
