Published on June 25, 2018

The Philadelphia College of Pharmacy student chapter of the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP) was recently awarded USciences Student Organization of the Year.

Building upon their mission of helping older adults with safe medication use, the chapter was recognized for their expanded activities both on and off the college campus in the areas of leadership, service, Inter-professional education, public health and their mission to older adults.

Highlights of the year include:

  • Planning and participating in the professional development track for ASCP’s Mid-Atlantic Regional Annual Conference held in Baltimore in August 2017 
  • Hosting the 2nd Annual Falls Prevention Awareness Day on Sept 22 during the National Week of Fall Prevention (coinciding with the start of fall)

  • Hosting an ASCP Speaker Event with geriatrician, Dr. Richard Stefanacci, discussing Medicare Part D and ASCP PA Board Member, Paul Caceres discussing transition from university to pharmacist.
