Northeastern Pharmacy Student Wins National Patient Counseling Competition
Alexandra Kolwicz (PharmD ‘17) achieved first place honors at the American Pharmacists Association-Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP) National Patient Counseling Competition (NPCC). This annual competition draws from thousands of students at the local level who compete to represent their school and chapter at the APhA-ASP national meeting which was held this year in Baltimore, Maryland. The competition entails progressively more challenging patient counseling scenarios and culminates in the selection of a field of ten finalists who compete in a final round. Alexandra is the first pharmacy student from Northeastern University’s Bouvé College of Health Sciences, School of Pharmacy, to take top honors nationally.
