Each year the College of Pharmacy sponsors a food drive to help non-profit organizations in the Nashville area. This year faculty, students and staff donated over 1,000 lbs. of food in the form of 150 food bags to the non-profit organization Nashville Cares. Nashville CARES provides a comprehensive response to HIV/AIDS in Middle Tennessee. Its purpose is to educate the community for increased understanding and prevention of HIV transmission, to advocate for responsible public policy and to provide services that improve the quality of life for people with HIV/AIDS and their families.
