This award recognizes the school that worked at developing and participating in public awareness and community activities promoting the role of the pharmacist. It especially focused on participation int he Generation Rx and Katy’s Kids programs. Credit was also provided based on communications activities with PPA through the variety of communications materials and media outreach. 

Philadelphia College of Pharmacy held multiple events promoting Katy’s Kids and Generation Rx, was very active on social media, and had a creative “Share Your Why” photoshoot that allowed students to share why they love or chose pharmacy. 

The student group received a commemorative plaque and a $200 cash prize for their organization. 

Founded in 1878, the Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association is a professional membership organization with more than 2,000 pharmacists and pharmacy students across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, representing almost all facets of pharmacy practice. As the leading voice of pharmacy in Pennsylvania, it promotes the profession through advocacy, education, and communication to enhance patient care and public health.
