2009 Operation Immunization Award

Awarded at APhA 2010


University of Illinois at Chicago
In order to inject their expanding Immunization Initiative the University of Illinois at Chicago APhA-ASP Chapter had their entire P4 class become certified to immunize. In addition to their traditional efforts with health fairs, school visits, and flu clinics they targeted special populations by hosting educational booths at the AIDS Run/Walk and the American Lung Association Lung Walk. To battle the H1N1 hype they organized flu-shot kiosks at O’Hare International Airport to educate and screen travelers for both the seasonal and H1N1 vaccines.

APhA-ASP PharmFlix Video Contest 2010 Results

At the 2009 APhA Summer Leadership Institute the APhA National Executive Committee and Communications Standing Committee developed the Pharmflix contest. This contest was designed to utilize the creative talents of student pharmacists to convey a message via the latest media technologies. Chapters were asked to create a video with a message focused on “Being a Pharmacist Means being a member of APhA.” The award criteria included creativity, professionalism, and appropriate length. We received outstanding contributions this year which can be seen in the coming weeks on the APhA-ASP YouTube page.
