Student Chapter Video Contest!

Create a video with your student chapter to describe the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration to improve patient care!   

Videos can be as simple (recorded on your iPhone) or as elaborate (using video editing software) as you want to make them, as long as they are under 5 minutes. Submissions can be done in a creative, original or humorous way (think parodies and commercials!).

The ultimate goal should be to creatively educate the average person on the potential role of health-system or hospital pharmacists and how they impact patient care.

Congratulations to the 2015 Video Contest Winner, University of Illinois at Chicago - Rockford, for their video, Top Health:
