"You made it through the U S Navy; pharmacy school will be a "walk in the park" in comparison. I'm a retired pharmacist who enjoyed 45+ years behind various pharmacy counters, owned 3 stores of my own in my prime years, and finished the last 5 years teaching pharmacy.

Lady switches from being a doctor to an investor

Meanwhile, previously reported that a COVID-19 survivor had shared how she switched from being a doctor to an investor.

The Nigerian lady voluntarily gave up her medical license to pursue a career in finance.

Brown, now founder of a leading African healthcare investment company, said many people were awe-struck when they learnt a well-read medical doctor was studying for a Masters in Finance and Economics.

According to her narration, the untimely demise of her younger sister made her see the need to invest in untapped African healthcare as she became very much aware of the challenges and was determined to be a part of the solution.
