Hospital Hill Bragging Rights

Students from Four Schools to Compete in Fundraiser

The first “Rx Factor” pits each of the four University of Missouri-Kansas City Hospital Hill schools against each other in a friendly fundraising competition.

Will it be the School of Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing and Health Studies or Pharmacy that earns bragging rights?

“Rx Factor” will be held 7 p.m. April 26 at the theater in the UMKC Student Union. Deans from the Hospital Hill schools will judge contestants based on their scrubs fashion, talent, Q & A and mystery factor in a faux Miss America-style pageant.

The event is $10.50 per student; $20.50 for non-students. Free parking is available in the fifth and sixth floors of the Cherry Street parking structure.

Three-fourths of the proceeds are going to support a UMKC pharmacy student undergoing cancer treatments; 25 percent will be split between the top two contestants to go to philanthropies of their choice. Kappa Epsilon, a professional fraternity at the UMKC School of Pharmacy, is organizing the event.
