As part of the two-year fellowship, Chilbert will sit on an Honor’s College committee, host various Honors College events throughout the year, and have weekly office hours to engage with undergraduate honors students.

“Through this mentorship role, I hope to get Honors College students interested in pharmacy and retain students already in our Early Assurance program,” she says.

Chilbert is an alumnus of the Honors College. She is a board-certified cardiology pharmacist and conducts clinical research in cardiology pharmacotherapy.
