For the second year in a row, School of Pharmacy students, faculty, and staff have contributed to the University of Waterloo annual food drive, CanBuild.
Volunteers from the School of Pharmacy team created larger-than-life pill vial, symbolic of the important role pharmacists play in counselling patients on their medications. The vial also hints at the diverse services available from pharmacists, such as medication checks for patients taking many medications.
March is Pharmacist Awareness Month (PAM) and that means that our students are out in the community, sharing their pharmacy knowledge in venues like Conestoga Mall and in Kitchener and Waterloo classrooms.
Roger Ayoub and Urooj Advani were some of the 33 volunteers who participated in PAM Outreach.
On Mar 22, the University of Waterloo School of Pharmacy welcomed back recent alumni for the first ever New Grad Panel, a Pharmacist Awareness Month (PAM) event. The Panel, organized by PAM Chair Heidi Fernandes and Jr CAPSI Rep Monique Eisa, featured recent graduates representing a diverse cross-section of pharmacy practice. It took a question and answer approach where the new grads talked pharmacy life with current students.
