School of Pharmacy Students Attend State Conference


Six South University, Columbia Doctor of Pharmacy students recently attended a statewide conference.

The students took part in the annual South Carolina Society of Health-System Pharmacist (SCSHP) conference. The event was an opportunity for students to attend sessions where researchers presented findings on a number of topics relating to pharmaceutical patient care and outcomes.

Doctor of Pharmacy students Kevin Kelly, Christi Smith, and Ashlee Worthey made up the South University Clinical Skills Competition team, and came in second place against students from other pharmacy schools around the state.

The conference also gave Doctor of Pharmacy student Rena Phillips the opportunity to do a poster presentation of research she did with faculty member Kenric B. Ware, PharmD, MBA, AAHIVP which involved an analysis of behaviors of illicit drug users in an online community. Philips says presenting the research at the conference gave her the opportunity to hone her presentation skills, while also getting feedback from professionals in the field.
