"Mills allows me to use my background in laboratory sciences to formulate and produce medications on a smaller, personalized scale. I can quickly see a project through from start to finish and know that it has an immediate therapeutic value to a patient in my community. I am often challenged by new prescriptions from doctors that allow me to research and collaborate with my team to create a product that is effective and convenient to administer."
