    Ahmad Danjuma Nigeria Am a fresh pharmacy graduate from Nigeria undergoing my internship, I must confess that this programme have given the opportunity to recall my Knowledge on health sciences in a very simple approach. And interestingly, I have come across many facts I never learned in school. I will continue to learn through this medium so as to update myself as health care worker and to offer better service to my community. God Bless Alisom.com. 2015-07-15 01:07:19
