We were greeted by the Vice President of Parliament (quite a big deal!), Ulla Schmidt, of the Social Democratic Party. She spoke about leadership, her role as Vice President, and the future of interdisciplinary healthcare. It was a short, but very worthwhile visit!
After a 2-hour train ride from Berlin to Dresden, we unpacked at our A&O hostel & grabbed some lunch.
A few blocks from our hostel, we met to take a tour of the Museum of Hygeine. Sounds pretty weird...but was actually very interesting!
We explored the exhibits about "the transparent man", living & dying, sexuality, and dance.
From the Hygeine Museum, we hopped on some bikes to make our way to another destination. We didn't know that our bikes would be a spinoff of our Minneapolis pedal pubs...
Our 7-person bike
Our bike tour led us to the Saxony-Anhalt Chamber of Pharmacists. We chatted with some of the pharmacy chamber pharmacists and other pharmacy students. A German pharmacist from the nearby Dresden University Hospital presented about clinical pharmacy.
Afterward, the entire group discussed pharmacy school in the USA and compared compounding practices.
