Hi my name is Dr. Bakana. I graduated with Bachelor’s degree in Pharmacy from Addis Ababa University - School of Pharmacy, Ethiopia. After graduation, I worked as a hospital pharmacist for two years, afterwards I served as Pharmacy Department Inspector in the Ministry of Health for three years; further I worked eleven years in pharmaceuticals manufacturing as a production pharmacist and head of tablets, syrups, and ointments production. For eight years I worked as a technical manager of pharmaceutical products importer and distributor.After coming to the United States of America, I did the Equivalency Exam of Foreign Pharmacy graduates and related requirements and got certified as a registered pharmacist. In addition, I studied at Howard University and graduated with PharmD. In the United States of America, I have been practicing in my pharmacist profession since 2008 in a number of pharmacies. Let God give me his wisdom and knowledge for my continuing professional success with Sierra at Neighborhood Pharmacy.
