“Organ Donation Awareness” (January 23, 2017)

In January, the OU sOSHP chapter invited Dr. Mark Mills, Medical Science Liaison with Veloxis Pharmaceuticals, to discuss organ donation and the Organ Donation Advocacy Challenge sponsored by the American Society of Transplantation-Transplant Pharmacy Community of Practice Organ Donation Workgroup.

 

“Legislative Day” (February 16, 2017)

In February, the chapter paired with NCPA/APhA/PLS to have a meeting about Legislative Day. Senator Rob Standridge met with the students and gave details as to what Legislative Day is all about. He also discussed various bills that were being put through the House and Senate that have an impact on the pharmacy profession and if we, as pharmacists, wanted them to be passed or not.

 

Service Projects:

OU sOSHP chapter members were involved in multiple service projects.  In February, a small group of students staffed a booth at the Tulakes Elementary School Health Fair where they educated elementary school students and their parents about the Oklahoma Center for Poison and Drug Information and poison prevention. These students received magnets with the poison hotline number, and the children completed word search puzzles with “hidden poisons”. They also had the opportunity to test their skills by differentiating between medicines and candies that have similar appearances. In April, as part of the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center’s annual Big Event day of service, sOSHP members partnered with three local independent pharmacies (Creative Care Pharmacy and Hospital Discount Pharmacy in Edmond along with ValuMed Pharmacy in Del City) to set up booths to provide information about the Organ Donor Registry. Students handed out information to members of the community, and checked for the “little red heart” on people’s driver’s licenses to help individuals verify that they are registered as organ donors. Throughout the spring semester, OU sOSHP continued to partner with Millwood Elementary School and provide hands-on learning activities and workshops on medical equipment and immunizations to students. The chapter also educated the students at Millwood about over-the-counter (OTC) medication literacy, which is all about learning to safely use and store OTC medications. Members have also been volunteering at the Mid-Del Community Health Clinic, providing intern services to the pharmacist on duty and educating patients on smoking cessation.
