Jefferson University College of Pharmacy student, Yuliya Baratt presented a poster during the Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association’s (PPA) 2013 Mid‐Year Conference. She joined 18 other students from four other Pennsylvania pharmacy schools and two residents for the poster presentation which occurred during a reception before and immediately following dinner on the Saturday evening of the conference.
For several years now, the student posters have been a focal part of the reception and the number of participants has consistently grown. New practitioners assist PPA with providing evaluations and constructive feedback to the students to help them grow and improve through the experience. The presentations sponsored by the PPA Educational Foundation are designed to encourage provocative thinking on pharmacy’s future and are to focus on innovation in pharmacy practice.
Baratt’s poster was entitled: Assessing the effects of pharmacist involvement on patient outcomes in the treatment of HIV. Photos of all the students with their posters and the actual poster content can be found on the PPA website under the Educational Foundation.
The PPA Educational Foundation’s mission is to foster research, education, and the development of practice models that advance patient care. It currently provides research grants and supports both the student pharmacist pain counseling competition and the student poster presentations at PPA’s Mid‐Year Conference. The Foundation depends on individual charitable contributions for its work.
