    There is still time to participate in the 2019 Pharm4Me Innovation Challenge! This competition encourages student pharmacists and middle/high school students to work as a team and identify innovative solutions to medication or health-related problems in their communities.

    The primary goal of the Pharm4Me Innovation Challenge is to stimulate interest in pharmacy careers by exposing young students to the role of pharmacists in health care. The Challenge is sponsored by our Pharm4Me partner, OptumRx. Winning teams will receive cash awards and be recognized at the 2019 AACP Annual Meeting.  Deadline for submissions is March 15, 2019.

    Another great way to engage with prospective high school students in your area is to demonstrate aspects of pharmacy careers through hands on activities, such as compounding!  The Pharm4Me Compounding Lip Balm Recipe is always a big hit at all recruitment events.  View a few photos (attached) from the Healthcare College & Career Fair at Falls Church High School on January 25th!
