CPHS students to receive pins marking ‘rite of passage’

Third-year health sciences and professional pharmacy students will take part in a College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences Graduate Seminar and Recognition Ceremony on Thursday, May 6.

The event will begin at 5:15 p.m. in Olmsted Center, 2875 University Ave with presentations on professional etiquette, interview techniques, and capstone experience expectations.

The Recognition Ceremony portion of the evening will take place in the Bulldog Theater in lower Olmsted at 7:30 p.m. The Ceremony will commemorate a rite of passage for the students as they begin their advanced pharmacy practice experiences and health sciences senior capstone experiences.

During the Recognition, each student will be presented with a pin and professional nametag, representing the milestone in education that has been achieved as the pharmacy students move from their course work into their advanced practice experiences (rotations), and the health sciences students progress into their senior capstone experiences.

The Recognition Ceremony will also include the announcement of student awards, including the first Lon Larson Engaged Practitioner Award, established in memory of the late Lon Larson, the Ellis and Nelle Levitt professor of pharmacy administration. He died May 8, 2009, after a three-year battle with cancer.
