Alumni Leaders Share Advice with Students in iLead Program

Alumi series 1Students and alumni at University of the Sciences recently had the opportunity to engage with each other during the USciences iLead Leadership Series' second annual Alumni Dinner on Friday, Oct. 10.

“This type of event allowed our current students to meet, network, and create new relationships with our successful alumni leaders,” said Susanne Ferrin, director of student life at USciences.

Alumni Gary Smedley PharmD’11 and Stephanie Bean MPT'89, DPT, attended this year's event and shared their leadership experiences and advice with 20 students in the iLead program. This program is a voluntary student-leadership series that based upon the social change model of leadership, which is highly relevant for students involved in healthcare and science disciplines, said Ferrin.

Dr. Smedley is a former president of the Student Government Association at USciences and a current community leader; whereas Dr. Bean is a current member of the board of trustees at USciences, and former president of the Alumni Association.
