Over 100 Pharmacy Students Attend APhA-ASP Welcome Back Cookout


Around 114 SWOSU pharmacy and pre-pharmacy students and their families joined College of Pharmacy (COP) faculty at the recent Welcome Back Hamburger Cookout at Means Park in Weatherford.

The event is hosted by SWOSU’s American Pharmacists Association Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP) and sponsored by Walgreens Pharmacy. The hamburgers were cooked by COP faculty, and Walgreens Pharmacy District Manager Ryan Walker distributed door prizes.

The APhA-ASP promotes professional and ethical advancement of pharmacy students, and provides community service opportunities for members to educate the public on the importance of awareness, prevention, and overall good health practices. Other ASP events include Spirit Week for Homecoming, Pharmacy Week, and the White Coat ceremony.
