SSHP WelLness Clinic
Students from SSHP hosted a wellness clinic at a local senior center. The students took time to explain the Vial of Life Program to patients. This program allows emergency personnel to access the necessary medical information to provide the best care to the patient.
SSHP Pharmacy Student Mixer
SSHP hosted a Student- Pharmacist mixer at Brick House Tavern + Tap to allow students to hear about the profession first hand. Students were able to talk to pharmacists in a casual environment to learn more about what it is like to be a pharmacist, the different career options within the field, and ask any questions that the students may have had.
Trivia Night: UB vs D'Youville
SSHP hosted their annual trivia night this past spring in a battle against students from D'Youville. Teams of students, residents, and pharmacists worked together to answer questions submitted by pharmacists. Coming down to a final cardiac question, UB came on top.
SPPS students took time out of their busy schedules to brighten the day of hospitalized children.
SPPS organizations Lambda Kappa Sigma (LKS) and the Student Society of Health-systems Pharmacists (SSHP) hosted their annual Valentine's Day card event at the Women and Children's Hospital of Buffalo (WCHOB).
Students spent a week in early February making over 50 cards to deliver to children admitted to the hospital.
WCHOB child life coordinator Tara Young assisted the students in delivery of the cards.
