First-year PCOM School of Pharmacy students visited the Georgia State Capitol for the annual advocacy day.
Opportunities abound outside of the classroom for students at Georgia Campus – Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (GA-PCOM).
On Tuesday, January 30, first year students from the PCOM School of Pharmacy experienced legislation in action at the Georgia State Capitol as part of the Georgia Pharmacy Association’s Day at the Dome. The annual advocacy day sponsored by the Georgia Pharmacy Association provides an opportunity for students to learn about legislative advocacy, as well as to meet face-to-face with legislators to have their voices heard.
According to Mandy Reece, PharmD, vice chair and associate professor of pharmacy practice, PCOM students joined students from the University of Georgia College of Pharmacy to represent Georgia pharmacists in their advocacy efforts. Pharmacy students from Mercer and South universities will participate in an advocacy day in February.
