Tell us about yourself

 

My name is Alexia Tsikouras and I was born and raised in the Art Museum area of Philadelphia PA. I earned my Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia in 2008. From 2008 until early 2014 I worked for CVS Pharmacy. I now work at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, which belongs to the University of Pennsylvania Health System along with Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and Pennsylvania Hospital.

 

 

Where do you work in the healthcare field?

 

At Penn Presbyterian I run the MyPenn Pharmacy program which provides medications to patients before they are discharged from the hospital. I also head the MyPenn Specialty Oncology Program, that provides oral chemotherapy medications to outpatients of the Abramson Cancer Center branch at Penn Presbyterian. Both programs provide great services to all patients.

 

What is your connection to Greece?

 

My parents are from the Epirus region of Greece, specifically a small village town 20 minutes from the main city of Ioannina. I visit that area of Greece just about every summer along with various Greek Islands and Athens. I am proud to be an Epirotisa! I am an active member of St. George Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Center City. I also attended Greek school there and was part of the Brotherhood of Demati Dance Group.

 

Why did you choose to become an HMS member?

 

I am very proud of my Greek heritage and believe the work ethic that was instilled in me by both of my parents has gotten me to where I am today professionally. HMS has given me the opportunity to give back to the community especially to students who are interested in healthcare professions. HMS gives the extended Greek community of the tristate area an opportunity to network and meet with different healthcare professionals in all areas of the healthcare field.

 

What do you do for fun?

 

I love to travel! My favorite cities are Paris, London, Miami and lets not forget the Greek Islands! I love to spend time with my family and friends!
