UC Pharmacy Students Make a Difference


UC Pharmacy students do a lot to support our community – and to help make real change in the world.

The UC School of Pharmacy is dedicated to working with community partners to improve the health and welfare of our fellow citizens. UC students regularly participate in community health outreach opportunities, drug take back days, advocacy for the profession at the WV Capitol, and more.  This year, two particular issues have provided the opportunity for our students to use their knowledge, compassion and training to truly make a difference to members of our community.
