Students from the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine School of Pharmacy handed out pink ribbons at the Erie campus Monday to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Day. LECOM students, faculty, and staff members were encouraged to wear pink clothing. At noon, members of the American Pharmacists Association Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP) enlisted their classmates to form a human pink ribbon in the school’s atrium. More than 50 students, wearing pink, formed the ribbon, as members of the local media captured the moment.
Pharmacy students also sold pink paper chain links to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. The chain links were connected and fashioned into a large pink ribbon.
Through this effort, LECOM students pitched in $210. The chain of hope was organized by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists Student Societies of Health-System Pharmacy (ASHP-SSHP).
