Photographs of Tania Begum, Co-owner of Community Rx Pharmacy, and Staff

Tania Begum was inspired to become a pharmacist, following in her father's footsteps to serve the community in healthcare. In 2013 she and co-owner Mahbubur Motlib opened Community Rx Pharmacy in Warren, Michigan, to serve the growing Bangladeshi community and other diverse communities. "We don't have a Bengali speaking pharmacy in this location… we want to be with the people and be their support center, a resource center for them,” she says.

Photo 1: On June 30, 2019 Community Rx Pharmacy staff attended a healthcare screening hosted by Muslim Family Services and ICNA at the Sweet Rock Missionary Baptist Church in Detroit, Michigan. Tania is one of metro Detroit's Bangladeshi Women Entrepreneurs.

Photo 2: The staff attend and host community events to give back to the community. Her father was a pharmacist in Bangladesh before moving to the United States with his family in 1998. Now she is following in his footsteps.
