PHILADELPHIA and RESTON, Va. — University of the Sciences and Practice Greenhealth announced that they will collaborate to develop and promote sustainability training for pharmacists, pharmacy students and related professionals.
The USciences and PGH partnership includes:
Developing a methodology for assessing the effectiveness of sustainability training for pharmacists;
Assessing the feasibility of similar course offerings to pharmacy students at USciences; and
Encouraging collaborative and cooperative research activities that support the development of educational programs relating to pharmacists and sustainability.
