The UC pharmacy school also recently received an award in a competition sponsored by the National Consumers League. The month-long competition was aimed at raising public awareness about taking medication as directed.
The National Challenge Award was due to the team's efforts to reach more than 6,000 consumers in the Charleston area. The team included students from the pharmacy school, the physician assistant program, athletic training education program and the Regional Tobacco and Substance Abuse Prevention Program.
About a third of the students in the four-year pharmacy program have undergraduate degrees, but the school also accommodates non-traditional students with 63 hours of pre-pharmacy credit. For more information, visit www.ucwv.edu/pharmacy/.
