Roseman Students Participate in Utah’s Pharmacy Day on Capitol Hill

Students from the Roseman University College of Pharmacy in South Jordan participated in the annual Pharmacy Day on Capitol Hill today in conjunction with pharmacy students from the University of Utah. The theme of this year’s event was “Access to Healthcare,” and students prepared posters on the topic, including information about Spanish language access to pharmaceutical care, drug shortages, immunizations, and more. In addition, the students offered free health screenings to legislators, employees, and visitors at the Utah State Capitol. Some of the things students offered included:

  • “Ask a Pharmacist” booth
  • Cholesterol screening
  • Blood sugar screening
  • Blood pressure screening
  • Lung function screening
  • Immunization information
  • Information on safely taking medications

Approximately 50 students from Roseman University and 35 students from the University of Utah pharmacy programs participated in today’s event. They were welcomed by Lt. Governor Greg Bell, and introduced in the Senate and House chambers during the legislative session.
