Students Provide Strong Showing at APhA-ASP Meeting
There were 36 students representing both campuses who attended the APhA-ASP Midyear Regional Meeting in Washington, DC this weekend. Representatives from more than 30 pharmacy schools attended the meeting where discussions were held about policies that will enhance the pharmacy profession. Our own Brianna (Bri) Luft, pictured above, was elected to the position of Midyear Regional Meeting Coordinator.
ACPHS Members Past and Present Pay Tribute to Dr. Bailie
A number of current and former faculty, staff, and students paid tribute to Professor George Bailie (above, center) at a retirement party last week. Dr. Bailie stepped down last year following 25 years as a member of the Department of Pharmacy Practice. Among his many contributions were helping found the Albany Nephrology Pharmacy Group (ANephRx), a group of faculty who research various aspects of kidney disease and treatment options. Dr. Bailie has been given Professor Emeritus status, an honor bestowed upon retired faculty in recognition of distinguished contributions in teaching, scholarship, and service to the College.
Vermont Students Busy with Activities in the Community
Members of the Phi Lambda Sigma pharmaceutical fraternity participated in a Health Careers Fair for high school students at Norwich University (in Northfield, VT) this past weekend. They showed students at the school how to punch capsules, take blood pressure readings, and discussed career opportunities in the pharmacy profession. Closer to home, members of the student chapter of the Vermont Pharmacists Association gave free blood pressure screenings at a local pharmacy in Colchester.
South Hall Students Host 6th Annual Safe Trick or Treat
In what is becoming a tradition at ACPHS, the residents of South Hall hosted the College's Sixth Annual Safe Trick or Treat event this past Halloween. Students in the ACPHS Academy as well as children of ACPHS employees and those who live in area neighborhoods came out for the event. They were "treated" to games, activities, candy, and even a Haunted House in the basement. More than 100 participants took part in the festivities.

Women's Soccer Team Falls Just Short of Championship Game

For the second straight year, the ACPHS women's soccer team advanced to the semifinals of the USCAA national championship tournament. The women's team, seeded #6, upset #3 seeded Florida College in the first round before falling 4-1 to defending champion Daemon College (Buffalo, NY). The good news is that this was not the last game of the season for the team. The women host The King's College in the Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletics Conference (HVIAC) Championship Game this Sunday at 11:00 am. The men's team will follow against Berkeley College at 1:30 pm for a shot at their own HVIAC title. Should be a great day of soccer at the ACPHS Athletics Field.
Fine Print
Be forewarned. The National Security Agency can tell if you skipped the stories and jumped right to Fine Print. Do you really want to take that risk?
