Student Chapter Video Contest!



Create a video with your student chapter to chronicle the future of the role of health-system pharmacists from the present through the next 50 years!   

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 2013 Video Contest Winner, University of Illinois-Rockford, for their video, Living the Pharmacy Dream:

Pura Vida! This is something one would hear daily upon traveling to Costa Rica. It translates into, “the pure life.” Costa Rica is a beautiful country, no more than the size of Kentucky.
