Pharmacy Students Participate in 'Day at the Dome'February 1, 2018
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.
