LECOM School of Pharmacy faculty and students are celebrating American Pharmacists Month throughout October.
The celebration began early with a visit to the LECOM Erie campus by children from the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. Pharmacy students demonstrated compounding lab activities and explained opportunities for becoming a pharmacist.
The American Pharmacists Month theme is Know Your MEDICINE Know Your PHARMACIST. During the month, LECOM students and faculty members will provide information on safe and effective use of medications, demonstrate poison prevention awareness, and assist at community health fairs and clinics.
The School of Pharmacy will host the October meeting of the Pennsylvania State Board of Pharmacy. The Board will be hearing licensing and regulatory issues during the meeting on October 21.
