Over 150 pharmacy students from across the state united at the State House to speak with legislators regarding the bill S.413. This particular bill, “Pharmacy Vaccine Expansion Legislation” will allow student pharmacists to administer vaccines to patients under the direct supervision of a pharmacist. Additionally, the bill will allow pharmacists to immunize those who are 12 years of age and older. Students created posters to advocate support for the bill. Additionally, students discussed the significance of the bill with legislators.
Recently, PCSP was recognized as one of the top five pharmacy schools in the nation to have the most student pharmacist participation in the national “Pharmacists Provide Care Campaign”. PCSP students are passionate about contributing to the profession of pharmacy and enjoy participating in events which support the development of the profession. PCSP encourages student leader involvement by offering endless opportunities to be involved on a local, state and national level. As we unite together, we can strongly impact the future of pharmacy.
