ACPHS Research Forum 
The end of the semester is quickly nearing, which means it's time to get serious about your reading. So why not start with this week's e-Pulse? It's the best way to stay up to date on all of the comings and goings at ACPHS. And if being an informed citizen of the College is not enough to motivate you to read it, then do it because all of these stories will be on the final. 
Loss Doesn't Tarnish History Making Season for Women's Soccer Team
The ACPHS women's soccer team was defeated 7-1 last Friday by two-time defending champion University of Maine-Ft. Kent in the USCAA national semifinals. The loss did not overshadow what was otherwise a terrific year for the team, which was playing in its first season as a member of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association. Special congratulations go out to Sarah Cope and Skippy Ripepi who were both named to the USCAA All-American team!

Dr. Mousa's presentation was titled, "The Role of Nano Targeting in the Detection and Treatment of Various Types of Solid Tumors." The event was held November 8 at UAlbany's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering.
ACPHS Alumnus John McDonald Elected to New York State Assembly
John McDonald, member of the ACPHS Class of 1985, has been elected to represent the 108th District in the New York State Assembly. McDonald, who is a practicing pharmacist at his family's Marra's Pharmacy, is no stranger to politics. He has served as mayor of the city of Cohoes since 2000.
Students Volunteer at Local Child and Family Support Center

A group of ACPHS students recently visited Parson's Child and Family Center for an event they called "Fall Fest." Located a short distance from the Albany Campus, Parson's provides mental health services for children and families who are traumatized and in crisis. The students played games, colored, and made crafts with the children at Parsons. 

Annual Halloween Video is a Treat for the College Community
This is the fourth year that the ACPHS Office of Student Affairs and Office of Campus Life have partnered for a special Halloween dance performance. With past performances paying tribute to the Rocky Horror Picture Show and Lady Gaga, this year they tackled Korean sensation PSY and his song "Gangham Style." And while it didn't crash the servers at YouTube, the performance has already gotten nearly 600 views. Click here to watch the video.
