The Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association (PPA) recently presented Breanna Kester PharmD’16 with the 2016 Outstanding Pharmacy Student Award.

Kester attended multiple Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association conferences and Legislative Day. She served as the PCP director on PPA’s Student Advisory Board. Kester, along with two other PCP students, won the Self-Care Championship in 2015. Played much like the game show Jeopardy with a touch of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, the Self-Care Championship is a nation-wide competition among pharmacy students, designed to test their knowledge of OTC products and Home Remedies. All seven Pennsylvania schools of pharmacy had a team participate. 

Founded in 1878, the Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association is a professional membership organization of more than 2,300 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.
