The Germano Challenge is on! ACPHS Alumni and trustee, Geno Germano '83 and wife Theresa '86, are challenging fellow alumni and athletes to "fill the seats" of the newly renovated Athletics and Recreation facility. You may have heard about the upcoming groundbreaking for this facility, which will include a state-of-the-art track and synthetic turf field. The Germano’s are calling on 100 alumni and former student athletes to purchase a stadium seat at $1,000 each and they will in turn donate $150,000. This will generate $250,000 toward the $2.5 million project. The groundbreaking is scheduled for Saturday, June 2 at 12:30 p.m. at ACPHS. Join the Germano Challenge today! Go to www.acphs.edu/athleticsfield.
On June 2, as part of Reunion Weekend, the College will
host a special dedication to honor all those who have donated
to the library renovations since 2009. This summer, we will
launch Phase III of the library renovations. This phase
will include tying together the first floor and second floor
of the library. This will enable students to travel between
the main floor of the library and the study space on the
second floor without leaving the library proper. It will
include an interior stairwell and two-story atrium. Work
is already underway on this project which is scheduled to
be completed by August 15. Additional details are available
on the Library's website. Thank you to everyone who has
seen the value and importance of this project and has supported
it along the way.

College to go Smoke Free in 2013
President Gozzo recently announced that the Board of Trustees has approved a resolution for a 100% tobacco-free policy at the College. This policy, which has been adopted in conjunction with Albany Law School and will include both the Albany and Vermont campuses, will go into effect at the start of the 2013-2014 academic year. Over the course of the next year, the College will offer smoking cessation education and training programs for anyone who is interested.
Class of 2012 Graduation Week Highlights
On May 8 and 9, Pharm.D. and Bachelor of Science program graduates attended Senior Salute dinners where they were recognized by the College with honors and awards. On May 11, a champagne brunch was held for this year's graduates at Normanside Country Club. The event was hosted by the Recent Graduate Council and offices of Campus Life and Institutional Advancement. The Graduation Week events culminated with the school's 132nd commencement ceremony on May 12, where 212 pharmacy doctorates, 28 bachelor's degrees and 13 master's degrees were awarded at the Empire State Plaza Convention Center. Kerry Kennedy, president of the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights, gave the commencement address.
Medication Takeback A Huge Success
In conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Administration's (DEA) National Drug Take-back Day, the APhA-ASP, along with the Albany Police Department, hosted a very successful Medication Take Back Event on April 28 at ACPHS. Participants drove up to the ACPHS carport and dropped off unused or expired prescription and over the counter (OTC) medications without even leaving their vehicles. The event serviced 114 households and collected:
* 648 units of OTC's
* 1,320 units of non-controlled prescription medications
* 133 units of controlled prescription medications
* 26 units of narcotic prescription medications
The oldest prescription medication surrendered was from 1980. APhA-ASP is hoping to continue this spring event annually, offering community members a second opportunity each year (in addition to their regular October take-back event) to safely dispose of their medications.
