Earlier this month, seven students from Waterloo attended Professional Development Week (PDW) 2018 in Edmonton, Alberta alongside 580 other pharmacy students. PDW is an annual conference hosted by a different Canadian pharmacy school each year. It brings students from across the country together to network, apply practical skills, and expand knowledge of current health care topics. This year was the 30th PDW, hosted by the University of Alberta Faculty of Pharmacy.

McMaster’s Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine is a neighbour of the Waterloo School of Pharmacy: both are located at the Health Sciences Campus in downtown Kitchener. Over the years, the schools have taken advantage of their proximity to collaborate on projects and events.
In December, McMaster Medicine recognized Waterloo Pharmacy’s Elaine Lillie as an invaluable partner and honoured her with the Excellence in Collaboration Award for Interprofessional Education.
