From the first of March to the very last day of the month, pharmacy students led initiatives to celebrate the profession and shine a light on the many ways that pharmacy professionals contribute to their communities.  As Pharmacy Appreciation Month (PAM) closes, here’s a quick look back on all the activities.

19pharmacy student events virtually and in person
6social media initiatives on numerous topics
36classroom presentations featuring 76 students

Many activities were led by the Waterloo chapter of the Canada Association of Pharmacy Students and Interns (CAPSI). Under the leadership of CAPSI’s PAM Chair Sarah Fallis, students delivered interprofessional education events, a blood donation day, an evidence-based competition and more. Events were designed to celebrate pharmacy, provide education for students and others, spread awareness of the profession’s contributions and contribute back to the community.

Of note, 76 pharmacy students presented educational talks in nearly 40 elementary schools throughout the region. The talks ranged from lessons on handwashing for young children to presenting about pharmacy to careers classes for high school students.

Even on co-op work terms, students made time to celebrate the profession. See below for a PAM video created by Ethan Foster, Sapna Karwal and Sonia Sethi, Rx2024 oncology pharmacy students at Grand River Hospital.

“I could not be more proud of the past month and all the events and initiatives we planned for this incredible profession,” said Sarah Fallis, PAM Chair. Waterloo Pharmacy shares Fallis’ pride – congratulations to the students on an exciting month of celebration and education!
