School of Pharmacy Goes to Orlando, Florida…

The School of Pharmacy was well-represented at the 2017 ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting in Orlando, Florida, where the school hosted its annual “Alumni and Friends Reception.” As always, the event was a great opportunity for faculty, alumni, colleagues, students and friends, to meet and to share news about the institution they all know and love. Some lucky attendees walked away with a Northeastern gift from this year’s grand raffle.

Several Northeastern students from the School of Pharmacy attended and presented their research on a variety of topics. Below are some of the presenters along with their presentation titles:
