Learn to Innovate Education and Practice in Only 10 Minutes
Recipients of Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Grants will share brief, 10-minute summaries of their winning projects. The grants, sponsored by AACP and the American Foundation for Pharmaceutical Education, were for projects meant to address an issue related to AACP’s Strategic Priority #3, Innovation in Education and Practice.
Opening General Session Keynote Book Signing
Meet keynote speaker and Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Ph.D., as she signs copies of her book, Leadership in Turbulent Times, 9:45 a.m.–10:30 a.m., following the Opening General Session. The culmination of five decades of acclaimed studies in presidential history, Leadership… offers an illuminating exploration into the early development, growth and exercise of leadership through the lens of the four presidents Dr. Goodwin has studied most closely—Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon B. Johnson.
Hunger Doesn't Take the Weekends Off
Did you know 13 million kids in America don’t always know when they will next eat? During the school week, these kids have access to food at their school, but what happens when school closes on Friday? AACP has partnered with Blessings in a Backpack to collect supplies and donations at Pharmacy Education 2019, and send kids home on Fridays with backpacks full of satisfying and nutritional food for the weekend. As little as $10 can make this weekend hunger-free for three kids. Text AACPGIVES to 44-321 to make a donation to Blessings in a Backpack and feed a child.
Spend some time networking with your colleagues and a few furry friends! Therapy and shelter dogs will bring some warm and fuzzy “bark breaks” to the Pharmacy Education 2019 exhibit hall. Interested in adopting a furry friend? Speak to one of the shelter coordinators on site.
