Thirteen student pharmacists along with faculty members attended the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP) Annual Meeting in National Harbor, Maryland on November 6 – 9, 2012. Together they presented a total of five poster presentations which accounted for 12 percent of the meeting’s posters. The posters covered topics such as asthma control, Medicare Part D, osteoporosis, and more.
“Albert Barber, Past-President of ASCP, commented that Pacific students were to be congratulated for their dedication to patient service, research, and quantity and quality of presentations,” said Dr. Joseph Woelfel ’70, ’72, ’77. Dr. Woelfel was a co-author on all five posters.
He believes that research is critical for the students’ academic and professional development. “Research provides the opportunity to share findings and outcomes by publication in professional journals and presentations at national, regional, and state meetings. These are invaluable experiences for students which support professional growth and enhance residency, fellowship, and further graduate education opportunities,” says Dr. Woelfel.
