Camille Schrier, a Pharm.D. student and ASHP member, was named Miss America 2020 on Thursday night, saying medication safety would be part of her platform for her one-year term.
Schrier, who is attending Virginia Commonwealth University School of Pharmacy, said her goals as Miss America would be to promote medication safety, to prevent drug abuse, and to champion science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education.
With dual bachelor’s degrees in systems biology and biochemistry from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Schrier’s talent in the Miss America competition was a demonstration of the catalytic decomposition of hydrogen peroxide.
ASHP congratulates Camille Schrier for winning Miss America 2020 and for drawing attention to the importance of drug safety in America, with her plans of spending a year advocating for Mind Your Meds: Drug Safety and Abuse Prevention from Pediatrics to Geriatrics.
