In the week of October 17th-21st, the Pharmacy Technician Department contributed in a week that celebrates the invaluable contributions that pharmacists and technicians make to patient care in our nation’s health care institutions, which is recognized by all facets in the field of Pharmacy.
The theme celebrated with the students was “Professionalism”; the PT department expanded the classroom learning environment by inviting guest speakers throughout the week from the Pharmacy community to include: The University of Houston College of Pharmacy, Texas Southern University College of Pharmacy, Texas State Board of Pharmacy Compliance Department, Walgreens Pharmacist, Mary Kay, and a Boehringer-Ingelheim Medical Liaison.
This is the second year that the Pharmacy Technician Program celebrated Pharmacy Week.
