The end of the semester means that the e-Pulse will be taking its own winter break (we'll pause why you grab some tissues). But just like Frosty the Snowman, we'll be back again someday. In our case, that will be on or about January 22. Unless the ancient Mayans were right and the world ends on December 21. Then all bets are off. 
Presentations Showcase Diversity of Student/Faculty Research Projects 

How did you spend your summer vacation? It probably wasn't studying interactions of drug candidates with phospholipid headgroups, was it? That was the subject of one of ten presentations given Thursday at the culmination of last summer's student research awards program. The annual program helps promote student engagement in research activities and encourages mentoring relationships between students and faculty. Application information for next year's program will be distributed soon.  

Professional Fraternities Team Up for Hurricane Sandy Relief

After watching and hearing about the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, members of Rho Pi Phi and Phi Delta Chi decided to solicit donations for the areas of New York and New Jersey hardest hit by the storm. Students collected clothing, blankets, pillows, baby products, diapers, and canned goods from members of the ACPHS community as well as neighboring businesses. Half of the collections went to Toms River, NJ, while the remainder of the items were delivered to areas of Long Island. For more information, photos, and videos of this effort, please visit the group's Facebook page

Vermont Campus Students Hold Health Fair at Local Supermarket
The Vermont Chapter of the Student Society of Health System Pharmacists held its first ever Health Fair at the Shaw's Supermarket in Colchester. Members of the group, along with Assistant Professors Michael Biddle and Emily Sutton, conducted blood glucose screenings, blood pressure readings, and brown bag medication reviews. The event was well received, with customers expressing their appreciation for opportunities to learn more about their health status and medications.   
Basketball Teams Combine for 14-2 Record, Top Five Rankings
The weather may be getting cold, but it feels like summer in the Albert M. White Gymnasium. That's because both the men's and women's teams are off to red hot 7-1 starts. The latest U.S. Collegiate Athletic Association poll has the ACPHS women's team ranked #3 and the men's team ranked #5. The men, who already have a victory over St. Louis College of Pharmacy on their resume, had perhaps their signature win of the season on Thursday when they defeated local rival Sage College 67-64. Casey Redfern (left) led all players with 24 points and 9 rebounds.
