Welcome to Phi Lambda Sigma – Beta Alpha Chapter!
at the University of Wisconsin School of Pharmacy

Congratulations to January’s Leaders of the Month! 


Nick Friedlander (DPH-1)

Rangana Wanniarachchi (DPH-2)

Brianna Rahmlow (DPH-3)









DPH-1: Nick Friedlander

He always asks insightful questions during classes, and it’s very obvious that he loves learning for the sake of learning. He is super helpful to our class by posting thorough study documents to our class page and also being one of the first to help out anyone with an academic question with very complete answers. He inspires me with his passion for school and our future careers. I have really appreciated his leadership in the classroom this semester and think he deserves some recognition/appreciation for it!

DPH-2: Rangana Wanniarachchi

Rangana has demonstrated leadership inside and outside of the classroom. She is a Student Ambassador, the Roundtable Coordinator through the School of Pharmacy and has served as a Class Council Representative. Outside of school, Rangana advocates for the Police Departments in the Greater Milwaukee area. Among other events, she organized a 5K in Milwaukee last spring called “The Canines and Crowns 5K” and has raised over $3,000 for the Milwaukee Police K9 Foundation. Rangana is a great role model for all. She has passion to become the best leader she can be inside and outside of the School of Pharmacy.

DPH-3: Brianna Rahmlow

This past year, Brianna has gone above and beyond in her role as PHP/PSW-United Way Co-Chair for WSPS. She has spent time compiling new scripts on various health topics for volunteers to use during PHP events and created new medication cards that would be helpful in populations of low health literacy or those with English as a second language. She has also developed the role of the operation within the community in seeking out additional community centers and housing shelters to hold events. At events in the community, she advocates for our profession and brings awareness to our capabilities as pharmacists. Brianna is always a dependable resource who is willing to help others work towards a common goal.

This month’s theme: Leaders who Lead by example.

Whose attitude is contagious and inspires you to be a better person, student or pharmacist? Who’s work ethic and commitment motivates you to be the best you can be? Who inspires you?

Your nominations do NOT need to fit into this theme, the purpose of the theme is simply to give you something to look out for.
