ONCOLOGY SEMINAR

Event coordinators: Cancer Chairs Amanda Gee and Kimberly Nebo

On October 24, SNPhA & SSHP held a collaborative seminar about Oncology: A Pharmacist's Role in the Hospital and the Community. There were speakers from both MD Anderson and Baylor College of Medicine. The first set of speakers were PGY-2 Oncology residents who talked about signs and symptoms of cancer, certain screening procedures, and went over a day in the life of a resident. The cancer outreach team from Baylor College of Medicine talked about their BodyGuards program and how to get more involved in the community as student pharmacists through cancer education and outreach events. This collaborative event was designed to show the different settings that student pharmacists can help with cancer education, outreach and awareness.
