Pharmacy students take first place in skills competition
Audra Anderson and Quinn Branch, both third year Pharmacy School students at Texas Southern University, represented the University well by coming home with a first place finish in the Clinical Skills Counseling Competition at the Student National Pharmaceutical Association (SNPhA) 2012 meeting in Cincinnati, OH. In addition to the individual success, the Pharmacy School’s chapter of SNPhA is also the current Chapter of the Year.
Along with their esteemed award, Anderson and Branch both received a $250 cash prize, $100 Kroger gift card, $150 in American Express gift cards, $150 Amazon gift card, one year subscription to Lexi-Complete, a Sanford guide to Antimicrobial Therapy and a first ever Kroger/SNPhA Clinical Skill Competition lapel pin.
“We are very proud to be representing Texas Southern University in such a positive manner and we are looking forward to competing again this summer on the national level in Las Vegas, NV.,” said both ladies. “We plan on bringing home the National Title to Texas Southern, where there is Excellence in Achievement!”
Instructors who played a vital role in shaping these ladies during instructional courses were Dr. Doris Jackson, Dr. Rodney Hunter and Dr. Joshua Swan.
