Pharmacy Faculty Abstract Accepted for AACP Conference

Pharmacy Assistant Professors Edgar Diaz-Cruz and Angela Hagen and College of Pharmacy Dean Phil Johnston have had their poster titled “Student Organizational Impact on Minority Pharmacy Students and Diversity Awareness Through Community Service” accepted for the 2012 AACP Annual Meeting in Kissimmee, Fla.

The authors discuss how to prepare future generations of pharmacists, representational of the diversity of the community, through the Student National Pharmaceutical Association (SNPhA). This outreach directly impacts current Belmont University College of Pharmacy students as it develops their awareness of the various needs in minority communities. Inter-professional faculty advisers in the areas of the pharmaceutical, social and administrative sciences are strategically developing the organization to meet these diverse needs.
