AACP is seeking brand ambassadors—enthusiastic proponents of pharmacy and pharmacy education—from at least 100 member institutions to kick off a new campaign raising awareness and understanding of the many ways in which pharmacists help people live healthier lives. Brand ambassadors will engage with wider audiences – their communities, civic organizations, media outlets, etc. – to share stories of how pharmacists are truly helping people live healthier, better lives.
There will be programming on the first phase of our new social media campaign – #healthystartshere – at INfluence 2017, Feb. 25-28, in Puerto Rico. We’ll preview some of the campaign videos, and we’ll discuss how you and your schools can become part of this effort. It is not required that your brand ambassador attend the meeting, though we certainly encourage their participation.
Help mobilize individuals to tackle tough problems at the Leading Forward: Practicing Adaptive Leadership regional leadership workshop, April 20–21, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia Center City. Registration opens soon.
Plan to attend the 2017 Spring Institute, Developing a Culture of Sustainable Assessment, May 22–24 at the Hilton Washington Dulles Airport Hotel.
