P4 Student Recognized by Organ Donor Awareness Challenge
For the first time, students from the Northeastern University Bouvé College of Health Sciences School of Pharmacy participated in the Organ Donation Awareness Challenge set forth by the American Society of Transplantation. Under the guidance of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Department of Pharmacy transplant specialists Dr. Christin Rogers and Dr. Katelyn Richards, a group of fifteen pharmacy students began brainstorming at the beginning of February. Together, they organized several new and exciting events throughout March and April to raise awareness and clarify common misconceptions surrounding organ donation. Kayla Joyal, P3, was one of twelve project and activity projects submitted for the 2016 Organ Donation Award. She was chosen by the AST Transplant Pharmacy Community of Practice Organ Donation Workgroup for the 2016 New Participant Award. Kayla received her certificate at the AST meeting this past July in Boston.
