The Wilkes University Nesbitt School of Pharmacy received the 2018 Membership Award from the Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association.
This award recognizes the one school in the state that excelled at membership recruitment, retention and involvement.
Wilkes pharmacy school students impressed the Pennsylvania Pharmacist Association with their creative and innovative thinking at their pharmacy events. For one membership event, they put vials under each new member’s seat in an Oprah-like style. Everyone won a small gift in their vial including a Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association membership. Wilkes University’s Nesbitt School of Pharmacy has a total of 140 members and 50 of them are new members.
In recognition of its efforts, the school received a commemorative plaque and a $200 cash prize.
