I wanted to share the Script your Future successes this year and celebrate with everyone in the Nesbitt School of Pharmacy!
This year marks our 5th year participating in the Script your Future (SYF) Challenge, and we did a great job continuing to engage our community and spread the message of medication adherence and vaccine confidence.
Even with this year’s competition running a shorter period of time than in previous years (< 2 months), we were able to participate in 14 community events with 110 volunteers reaching 638 patients!
One of our new events that we are very proud of involved pharmacy students holding a Kahoot Night for Wilkes University nursing students. During this event, pharmacy students reviewed medication information for the NCLEX and encouraged the nursing students to be adherence advocates with resources to promote medication adherence to friends, family and patients they will see in practice.
Our social media was active this year with 27 posts across platforms with 3,937 total views!
This success was made possible by all of the support and engagement of students, faculty and staff in our school and I can not be more proud of our Wilkes University Nesbitt School of Pharmacy Pharmily 🙂
