Students 'Walked to End Alzheimer's Disease' on Nov. 9
Published on November 18, 2014
Members of the student chapter of American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP) at University of the Sciences participated in the Alzheimer's Association's Walk to End Alzheimer's on Sunday, Nov.9, at Citizens Bank Park.
“Our student-chapter provides opportunities for pharmacy students to learn ways to help the elderly manage their medications and see the potential for careers in senior care pharmacy," said alumna Laura Ginn, now an adjunct associate professor of pharmacy practice and ASCP advisor at USciences. "Students also volunteered to register walkers to become advocates for the Alzheimer's Association."
The following students, pictured above from left to right, participated in the Alzheimer's walk: Teresa Alvarez Moreno, Sara Skoritowski, Laura Finn, Romy Shah, Dorothy Krzyworzeka, Katlyn Spivak, Peter Pham, Vivek Shah, Paige Laupheimer, Isabel Papraniku, and Christina Ly.
The USciences ASCP student chapter supports proper medication management for older adults. Activities for which members are involved, include working with senior centers to provide medication education on adherence, adult immunizations and medication safety, as well as inter-generational activities.
November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness and Family Caregiver Month. Learn more about the mission to end Alzheimer’s disease at alz.org.
