FLAVORx donates flavoring systems to pharmacy schools

COLUMBIA, Md. — FLAVORx, a supplier of custom flavoring systems, announced that it will partner with more than 150 pharmacy schools and pharmacy technician programs to bring flavoring to classrooms and labs.

Faculty members that are currently using FLAVORx systems are pleased with the results, the company said.

“We have students break into small groups and discuss mock scenarios where they might have to flavor, discuss flavor choices and discuss ideal flavor decision-making,” said Robert Shrewsbury, PhD, associate professor at the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy. “Many students also work in pharmacies that use FLAVORx and are able to share their experiences with the group. I believe it is a nice introduction from the education standpoint, to familiarize our students with FLAVORx and prepare them for real world scenarios.”

The company says it hopes that, by empowering students with a fresh perspective, it inspires newly minted pharmacists and technicians to embrace their positions as patient advocates in the battle for higher medication adherence.

“We commend all of our pharmacy school and technician school partners for embracing our flavoring program, and we thank them for their commitment to educating proactive future pharmacists and technicians,” said Ursula Chizhik, PharmD, and director of pharmacy programs at FLAVORx. “We look forward to the day when every pharmacy student across the country has the opportunity to flavor as part of the academic curriculum.”
