I hope everyone had a great weekend and had a chance to check out the Health and Wellness Expo. It was a wonderful event. There was a 5K walk/run, a medication take back, flu shot clinic, free health screenings, medication reviews with pharmacists, Medicare Part D education and enrollment, farmer’s market, and more.
If you missed the Expo this year, be sure to check it out next year!
As you can probably tell by now, I’m a bit of a movie junkie! This weekend I went and saw “The Equalizer” and it was a lot better than I thought it would be. I was a little skeptical at first but it was really good.
This week there’s going to be a white-water rafting trip with the Outdoors Club as well as a Glow-In-The-Dark Kickball Tournament to fundraise for the Panther Project which is our branch of Habitat for Humanity! It should be really fun and hopefully raises a lot of money!
Last night, I attended a meeting and dinner at the local Milestone Restaurant in Glenmont, NY for the New York State Council of Health-System Pharmacists (NYSCHP). The presentation was about HIV and HCV statistics and current medications to treat these viruses. The information was very interesting, the food was delicious, and it was a great chance to network with some other pharmacy students, residents, and pharmacists!
This past weekend there was a lot going on for ACPHS students.
In Albany, it was the 33rd Annual LarkFEST. This is one of the largest one-day street festivals in Upstate New York. There was music, vendors, food, and more. If you missed it this year, you will definitely have to check it out next year!
There was also a bus trip to NYC. Some students spent the day walking around and shopping, others visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and others went to a Yankees game! It was a wonderful day in the city!
Have a great week!

This past weekend I attended the AACP (American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy) Annual Meeting in Grapevine, Texas. I attended meetings about evaluating and using medical apps, enhancing your mentoring, guiding, and sponsoring skills, global pharmacy experiences, data mining, global health ethics, e-professionalism, the history of pharmacy, geriatric pharmacy, and conflict resolution on an interprofessional team. I was also able to attend poster presentations and an exhibit hall. I learned a lot and hope to attend more professional meetings.
I hope all that attended the Sneak Preview events had an awesome day and met some amazing new friends. We look forward to see you all at orientation in about a month! It will be a lot of fun!
This starts my one week experience in a public health setting. I was placed at a local YMCA where I will be working with another pharmacy student to teach about a public health topic to both children as well as adults. It has been a great beginning of the week and I look forward to rest of this experience.
Good luck to those on rotations.
I hope everyone is having a relaxing summer! This Friday is the first Sneak Preview Day for ACPHS’s new incoming students. Our new students will have the opportunity to meet their professors, learn about all the services the school has to offer, receive their laptops, and many more fun activities. I am very excited to welcome so many new students to our school!
I am finishing up my third and final week on my IPPE Community rotation. I have learned a lot about the community pharmacy setting. I have learned a lot about HIPAA, pharmacy law, adverse drug reactions and medication errors, counseling, medication disposal, OTC consults, and much more. I am look forward to my next rotation my IPPE in public health at a local YMCA.
Have a great 4th of July next week!
Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences
I hope your summer is off to a great start. I am in the midst of my second week at my community IPPE rotation and I am learning a lot of new things.
Something that I learned about the school this week is that in addition to our ACPHS admissions blog we also have a school wide blog page that was started this spring. This blog has a lot of interesting information on it! Check it out!
