ACPHS Research Forum 
Election day is just a few days away, so if you want to see four more years of updates from the ACPHS campus, there's really only one choice. It's the e-Pulse. Read our lips ... Five stories. Friday afternoon. Delivered tax-free to your inbox. [This message was approved by the editorial staff of the e-Pulse].
Health and Wellness Expo Draws Nearly 500 Visitors to the College
The Oct. 27 Health and Wellness Expo, co-sponsored by ACPHS and MVP Healthcare, was by all measurements a great success. Following the morning's 5K race (won by ACPHS's Zach Yates in a tidy 17:58), a steady flow of people streamed to the campus to receive health screenings, get discounted flu shots, visit the farmer's market, and meet with nearly 50 vendors of health and wellness services. One of the biggest attractions was the medication takeback program where approximately 200 pounds of unused or expired drugs were collected!
Soccer Teams Close Within Striking Distance of Championships
The Women's soccer team continued their storybook season by advancing to the "Final Four" of the USCAA national championship tournament with a 5-1 win over Paul Smith's College on Nov. 1. They play undefeated University of Maine-Fort Kent today (Friday). The men's soccer team is also having a strong season. They have earned a spot in the Hudson Valley Athletic Conference championship game against Berkeley College. That game, originally set for Saturday, Nov. 3, in Yonkers, NY, will be rescheduled as a result of Hurricane Sandy. 
Internationally Known Indian Musicians Perform on Campus
Veena Chandra, an internationally renowned sitarist, and her son Devesh (who plays tabla) performed a selection of music yesterday evening in the Rite Aid Lounge. Among her many professional achievements as a composer, teacher, and choreographer, Veena once played with the Beatles (yeah, those Beatles). The event was organized by the Dept. of Humanities and Communication, the Office of Global Initiatives, and the Multi-Cultural Club.
Argentinian Professor Lectures on the Development of Natural Products
Professor Silvia DiBenedetti (pictured at right with Associate Professor Carlos Feleder) visited the College from Argentina's University of Belgrano to deliver a lecture on the standardization and quality control of medicinal plants and their products. In some ways, the talk was a "natural" extension of last spring's rotation in Peru when 18 ACPHS students traveled to the Amazon to conduct research and study the medicinal properties of plants. The talk was part of the Dept. of Pharmaceutical Sciences annual seminar series.
Show Me the Money (Electronically)

Students who receive financial aid will soon be able to get their refunds electronically, meaning the money will be accessible immediately in their bank accounts. A link in the CAMS student portal ("Sallie Mae Online Refund") has been added so students can register for the new service. The target date for implementing the electronic refund process is the middle of November. Any questions, email student-accounts@acphs.edu.

Fine print
With clocks being turned back this weekend, that means you'll have some extra time on your hands. Sure you can sleep for an another hour, but wouldn't a better use of that time be to send along a note with your thoughts on this week's e-Pulse? We've even got a snazzy new e-mail address: epulse@acphs.edu. We look forward to hearing from you!
