Pharmacy award

Through numerous events and activities, UMKC student pharmacists and their faculty mentors make a huge difference in the health of thousands of people throughout the Kansas City area and across Missouri. As a result, a UMKC School of Pharmacy student group has been named among the best in the country again.

The UMKC chapter of the American Pharmacists Association Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP) was first runner up in the the Division AA National Chapter Achievement Award, placing UMKC in the top seven out of more than 125 APhA-ASP chapters, announced recently at the American Pharmacists Association annual meeting in San Francisco. The UMKC chapter has ranked in top spots many times in recent years.

Each year, the award is given to APhA-ASP chapters across the nation based on originality of programs, number of chapter members involved, impact on the community, benefit to student pharmacists and collaboration with other healthcare organizations.

UMKC School of Pharmacy faculty advisers include Kelly Cochran; Sarah Cox and Angela Brownfield at the Columbia campus; Cameron Lindsey, Valerie Ruehter and Andrew Bzowyckyj in Kansas City; and Lisa Cillessen and Heather Taylor in Springfield.

AIDS WALK KCThe AIDS Service Foundation’s  AIDS Walk Kansas City 2017 will be held on Saturday, April 29 at Theis Park. The walk is 3.4 miles and will take approximately 2.5 hours. Registration opens at 8 a.m.; the program with music and fun begins at 9; and the walk starts at 10 a.m.

aids-walk-route-mapUMKC is partnering with the AIDS Walk again this year. The planning committee has adapted the route so that approximately one third of the walk will be on campus. The route will hit our campus at the intersection of Volker and Rockhill, travel south on Cherry St. to 52nd St., over to Oak St. and 52nd St., and then north up to Theis Park. The entire walk will take place on sidewalks, and no streets on campus will be closed.

More than 3,000 walkers are expected to participate in the free event. There is no charge to walk.

Theis Park is located at the intersection of Emanuel Cleaver II Blvd. and Oak St., east of the Plaza and south of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.

If you are interested in serving as a volunteer along the UMKC route to provide direction and support, contact Troy Lillebo at
