University of British Columbia’s Pharmacist Awareness Month 2019 (PAM) is an annual national campaign during March that promotes the changing profession of pharmacy and the vital role that pharmacists play in the health care system. This month serves not only to recognize the profession of pharmacy, but to also give the public and UBC students the opportunity to better understand the profession and how pharmacists serve our communities.
Each year several events are held to achieve this cause, one of which is the Pharmacy Fair that is held at the heart of campus at the student union building. PAM gives students from all backgrounds the opportunity to learn more about the profession, as well as gain insight into this aspect of healthcare. This year, our events are focused around mental health and wellness, and caring for minor ailments such as the common cold.
