PediaCATS is a new organization at the College of Pharmacy started in the fall of 2010 with a focus on pediatrics. We are very excited to begin this organization and educate the community and students about pediatric pharmacy practice. With the help of Dr. Hanna Phan, our faculty adviser, we have been honored with recognition as the first student community network by the Pediatric Pharmacy Advocacy Group (PPAG), a national organization. We look forward to the coming years when we will establish our organization and become a successful and impactful student branch of PPAG.
PediaCATS is a University of Arizona College of Pharmacy student organization committed to improving the health of children and promoting pediatric education among healthcare professionals. One of the main efforts of the group will focus on advocating for health education through philanthropic events. The mission of PediaCATS will be to unite healthcare professional students in a joint effort to improve the well-being of children within our community while emphasizing the nature of pediatrics as a specialty.
