The AphA-ASP Reports Wonderful Student/Patient Opportunities Despite COVID-19
The AphA Academy of Student Pharmacists (AphA-ASP) is the largest student group at the University of Utah. Their mission “is to be the collective voice of student pharmacists, to provide opportunities for professional growth, to improve patient care, and to envision and advance the future of pharmacy.” The executive committee for AphA-ASP is made up of 15 students. Each of the 15 executive committee members chairs a committee of student volunteers. Their areas of focus are Diabetes, Immunizations, Women’s Health, Rural Outreach, Heart, Generation Rx, and OTC Medication Safety. This group provides wonderful opportunities for student pharmacists to volunteer, practice giving health screenings, and foster leadership skills.
The AphA-ASP recently compiled and submitted their national report for the 2019-2020 year. Melanie Hunter, PharmD Candidate for the class of 2021, gives us some exciting and positive news in regards to the national report.
