Pacific student abstracts accepted for poster presentation at the ASHP meeting in December
With over 20 health outreach events scheduled for October and November in celebration of American Pharmacist Month, student pharmacists has not shown any sign of slowing down. Instead they are reenergizing for the many professional meetings that will be approaching quickly. Ten student pharmacists who worked together in individual groups presented three poster presentations at the 2011 American Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists Midyear Clinical Meeting and Exhibition in New Orleans, Louisiana last week.
Virginia Hon ‘12, Sam Ekern ‘12, Zeenal Patel ‘12, et al. presented "Dabigatran co-administration with a proton pump inhibitor has no impact on activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) values: pilot results," Christine Giang ‘12, Krystal Sherman ‘12, Andrew Haydon '12, Wing-Chi Leung ‘12, et al, presented "An evaluation of nutraceutical thorough QT studies," and Janice Li ‘12, Raymond Gan ‘12, Jeremy Lim ‘12, et al, presented "Pharmacotherapy vs Pneumatic Compression: A comparison between ranexa and enhanced external counterpulsation."
Poster presentations provide students an opportunity to network with professionals in the field, garner feedback on their presentation, and enhance their communication and presentation skills.
Sam Ekern '12 patiently wait by his poster to answer any questions that meeting attendees might have.
