Seven NEOMED student pharmacist organizations worked together to put on and volunteer at the University’s sixth annual Pharmacy Golf Classic. The event surpassed last year’s total, raising more than $12,000.
The event features 18 holes of golf and a luncheon to support pharmacy student scholarships as well as the participating pharmacist organizations. The NEOMED Foundation helps increase accessibility to medicine, pharmacy and graduate education through donations like the one from the College of Pharmacy Golf Classic, which also encourages networking between students and health professionals.
This year, $10,000 benefitted the College of Pharmacy student scholarship fund, while the seven student organizations that volunteered split the remaining $2,000 of the proceeds to enhance their programs.
The following student leaders represented six of the seven student pharmacist organizations that volunteered at the event to help make it a success:
- Jennifer Toth (P3), Student College of Clinical Pharmacy and Student Society of Health-System Pharmacists (SSHP)
- Laura Nice (P3), SSHP and Phi Lambda Sigma
- Jordan Young (P2), American Pharmacists Association
- Katherine Knudsen (P3), SSHP and Kappa Psi Pharmacy Fraternity (KPPF)
- Tyler Perry (P2), KPPF
- Alicia Cetnarowski (P2), Lambda Kappa Sigma, Alpha Chi Chapter
