As reported in the last issue of the Bulletin, UA College of Pharmacy is one of three finalists for the Lawrence C. Weaver Transformative Community Service Award from the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy. A three-member AACP site team will be on campus and at nearby locations Tuesday, Dec. 1 from 8:15 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. During the visit they will experience a mini KEYS Internship Program poster session and hear presentations about PharmCamp, rural programs, the Medication Management Center and the Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center. They also will tour St. Luke’s Home, where our students volunteer in interprofessional clinics, and will visit with elders there.
“One great highlight will be a student health fair demonstration in the Walkway of Wellness from noon to 1 p.m.,“ says Elizabeth Hall-Lipsy, program manager for health disparities initiatives and community outreach. “The student organizations and their amazing community engagement activities will be on display for the site visitors. We may need some demonstration patients, so come down to support the COP and get your blood pressure or cholesterol checked!”
