DL student takes part in NDSU White Coat Ceremony

Jenna Rae Field, daughter of Cy and Julie Field, and Julie and Travis Wilke, all of Detroit Lakes, took part in a White Coat Ceremony at North Dakota State University on Saturday, Sept. 9.

Field is a student in NDSU's Doctor of Pharmacy program with an additional minor in business administration. She is among the NDSU pharmacy students who will take the oath of a pharmacist during the ceremony. Each student receives a white coat symbolizing his or her duty to patients and colleagues as they enter the pharmacy profession.

The White Coat Ceremony recognizes the entry of students into the profession of pharmacy. Together with the administration of the Oath of a Pharmacist, the ceremony helps make the student aware they are part of a time-honored profession.

In addition to her studies, Field is involved in Phi Eta Sigma National Honor Society.
