The month of October was American Pharmacists Month. The Association of Student Pharmacists chapter took this opportunity to reach out to the undergraduates through different on-campus activities.One activity included a health fair in the Bennett Campus Student Center. During the health fair student pharmacists focused on Immunizations, Diabetes, Breast Cancer, and Heartburn Awareness. We wanted to make the students more conscious of the important role that pharmacists can play in their healthcare. We also used weekly trivia questions as a way to educate the student body about different topics that tend to affect college age students. The questions focused on the flu, ADHD, Mono, and Meningitis. During the month of April, we will conduct another health fair to educate students about current health care topics.
