Philadelphia College of Pharmacy Awarded PPA’s Public Awareness and Communication Award

Published on October 15, 2020

Generation RxThe Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association (PPA) recently presented Philadelphia College of Pharmacy at USciences, with the Public Awareness and Communication Award during PPA’s First-Ever Virtual Annual Conference held on October 2, 2020.

This award recognizes the school that worked at scheduling and holding various public awareness and community activities promoting the role of the pharmacist, particularly focusing on participation in the Generation Rx and Katy’s Kids programs. 

Generation Rx events focus on the current opioid and substance abuse issues while Katy’s Kids programs bring the message to younger children that medication safety is important. Points were also awarded based on communications activities with PPA through a variety of communications materials, social media posts, and media outreach.

 Philadelphia College of Pharmacy at USciences held numerous Katy’s Kids and Generation Rx events throughout their local community and has done great work in promoting their chapter and PPA events through Instagram. In recognition of their efforts, the student group received a commemorative plaque and a $200 cash prize for their organization.
