Each year Waterloo Pharmacy presents awards to celebrate our outstanding partners in experiential education. These awards recognize preceptors and co-op supervisors who show exceptional dedication in their mentorship of Waterloo Pharmacy students. This year's outstanding mentors are Phil Hauser and Mark Pasetka; they received their awards at the PxP conference in Toronto earlier this week.

36.9 million people worldwide were living with HIV in 2017. In the same year, 1.8 million people became infected and 940,000 people died from AIDS-related illnesses.
