On August 29, friends of the Waterloo Pharmacy community came together to support student success at the Grey Silo Golf Club.

Proceeds from the Golf Invitational are directed to our Student Success Fund. This fund supports students interested in attending professional conferences throughout the year, like Professional Development Week (hosted by Waterloo Pharmacy students in 2016) and the Ontario Pharmacist Association’s conference. President of the Society of Pharmacy Students, Melanie Sanderson, explains how the success fund has helped students:

“In the past year proceeds from this tournament have given the opportunity to our 480 students to go to conferences held in Niagara Falls, Toronto and Calgary.

These conferences are an incredible opportunity to network with professionals and other students, learn clinical- and business-related lessons from experienced pharmacists, and to instill a sense of enthusiasm and excitement about the pharmacy profession.”

The event and the student success initiatives would not have been possible without the support of our generous sponsors, particularly our Platinum sponsor McKesson and our Gold sponsors Teva and Apotex.
