Dr. Theresa Ngoan Tran graduated from the University of Houston, College of Pharmacy, with a doctorate in pharmacy in 2002. Since then, Theresa has been enjoying a rewarding career as a pharmacist at Walgreens in her local community. Beside her professional aspirations, she has a special interest in providing medical missions AND has provided pharmaceutical care to remote and economically disadvantaged areas in the Phillipines with the Houston Medical Team. In addition to the Phillipines, she has traveled to other remote ethnically diverse areas in Vietnam such as Pleiku, Bac Ninh, Ha Mong, Ha Neng, and Hue. During her philanthropic missionary works, Theresa and the medical team have provided medical, dental, and pharmacy related needs to people, including lepers, orphanages, and seminary, who lived in those remote regions with no access to modern healthcare.
In addition to her doctorate degree in pharmacy, Theresa received her Masters of Science in 1995 and a BS in Biological Science in 1993 from the University of Houston, Clear-Lake.
