What did you do at MedMe? 

I got to do so many different things at MedMe! I helped to brainstorm ideas for Instagram posts and website designs. I also got to test the virtual care platform and give feedback. It’s super cool! I’ve also reached out to community pharmacists and give them an overview of what MedMe is and what we do.I also helped plan for Product Demos for pharmacy school students, and attended them.

Culture at MedMe:

Everyone at MedMe is so chill and inclusive! We’re also very motivated and hard-working. But of course, we work hard and then we play hard

What did you do at MedMe? 

I did a lot of things, helped where I could! I started off cold calling pharmacies to speak to them about our product but then moved onto UAT testing with the development team. I also wrote blog posts along the way and helped edit my peers’ blogs too. Another thing that I did was create a promotional video describing what students did here (you can see it on youtube).

Culture at MedMe:

Really engaging and supportive. Everyone wants the best for you and everyone works towards the same goals!
