Vishwanauth Persaud, P2

Admissions Student Ambassador

Touro College of Pharmacy

Greetings Everyone! Welcome to Touro! Although my name is Vishwanauth, I usually go by ‘Vish.’ I am a dual degree graduate from Herbert H. Lehman College where I completed my BSc in Biomedical Sciences, and BBA in Finance and Marketing with a minor in Accounting, and also an MPH graduate from SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University, School Of Public Health, where my final year thesis focused on, ‘Pharmaceutical Spending & Innovation: A Multivariable Analysis On Pharmaceutical Costs Allocation And Its Effects On Medical Innovation And Healthcare Progression.’ 

I’ve always been confident that I would be involved in the healthcare field ever since I was a child. I’ve also worked as a Pharmacy Technician ever since I moved to the US in 2018, at the age of 17, and I have been exposed to almost every facet of pharmacy ever since, and I continually fall in love with the profession.

I am deeply fascinated by the Clinical Pharmacy field, especially the Infectious Disease subfield. I also have interests in the fields of research, public health, and finance. Outside of academia, I am an avid tennis player, and I love to do anything outdoors-oriented, ranging from sightseeing, photography, hiking, camping, and fishing.

I am truly excited to have the opportunity to welcome you and aid in your transition to Touro College of Pharmacy, and I look forward to being of assistance to the best of my abilities!
