Auction Fundraiser-- A Pharmacy First
The School of Pharmacy APhA-ASP student chapter held its first student-faculty auction in April at the Parkside campus. The auction was held as a fundraiser for Generation Rx, an APhA program focused on preventing the misuse and abuse of prescription medications.
Items available for auction included faculty or student led activities, home-cooked meals, and gift baskets donated by various faculty and students at the school.
The auction, coordinated by Kate Schaefer of the Class of 2014 and Morgan Spellings of the Class of 2015, raised enough money to provided selected students the chance to represent South College for the first time at the 62nd session of the University of Utah School on Alcoholism and Other Drug Dependencies.
