Duquesne University Student Develops Introduction To Pharmacy Program For High School Students
At the beginning of March, Duquesne University School of Pharmacy PYIII and Baldwin High School alumna Natalie Turin successfully launched MissionRx, a program designed to introduce students to pharmacy, in the Baldwin-Whitehall School District just outside Pittsburgh.
Baldwin-Whitehall students participating in the program gained a better understanding of the role of a pharmacist in a hospital setting through five modules from admitting, monitoring and evaluating a patient through verifying mock prescriptions.
The success of the program earned Natalie "Alumni Spotlight" honors from the Baldwin-Whitehall School District for March.
