During the 2012-2013 academic year, through our OSU chapter OI projects, a total of 2318 patients received their flu vaccinations. 322 of those patients had their flu vaccine administered by our student pharmacists. An estimated amount of 362,968 patients were reached through educational public relation initiatives. 80 student pharmacists, 10 faculty members, and 43 pharmacists were involved in 40 events organized by OI to achieve such great numbers.
Last year one of the co-chairs won a student award for excellence in community service from OSU Offices of Outreach and Engagement from the OI service projects they conducted. This includes a $500 award from the university to OI for future project funding starting the 2013-2014 academic year.
