Pediatric Pharmacy Advocacy Group (PPAG)
PPAG is an organization with a focus on the pediatric population. Our goal is to educate students about the pediatric side of pharmacy. PPAG is about providing the best care for our younger patients and ensuring safe and effective administration. We organize various events in the community to educate children and their families about important health topics.

Pie Your Professor
During the Spring semester, PPAG hosted the Pie-Your-Professor event. The event provided students and faculty members the opportunity to pie their favorite professors in the face. All proceeds from this event were donated to SKIP of NY, an organization dedicated to reduce the cost of healthcare for children that are developmentally disabled by providing them a wide range of services. Everyone had a blast and PPAG looks forward to hosting the event again for this upcoming school year.
Mind Your Microbiome
Working with UB’s GEM community, students are able to go into the classroom and educate the younger generations about the world of microbes. We help students grow their very own bacteria on agar plates and allow them to safely look at their masterpieces. They also learn about the importance of lab reports and what working in the sciences is like.
Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF
This past year, we collected donations for UNICEF which is the United Nations Children's Fund. With the help of our classmates, we were able to collect $100. All proceeds go towards the survival, protection and development of children worldwide.
