Pharmacists from all over the country gathered at SMX Convention Center in Bacolod City—known as the City of Smiles—from April 22 to 26 for the annual Philippine Pharmacists’ Association (PPhA) National Convention. This year’s convention theme was Pharmacy Practice Standards: Based on Science, Driven by Evidence.
Adamson University was represented in the convention by the College of Pharmacy faculty and students, led by dean Perlita Crucis.
Oral and Poster Presentations
As part of the ever emerging pharmaceutical practice, participants were invited to share their research with the aim of updating their knowledge and improving their practice. Students from the College of Pharmacy were among those invited to present their research.
The AdU students who presented their posters were Rem Alfred Felix Sorillo, Hazel Egat, Ivan Bacud, and Sammy Jameson Ascan, each representing their group in the event. Professors who also made poster presentations were Ms. Ariane Marie Bayro, Ms. Hazel Lamadrid-Catublas, and Mr. Mark Kenneth Marcos. Three students were also chosen to conduct an oral presentation of their research: Samuel Isidoro and Yvonne Mae Belango were chosen in the Pharmaceutical Science category while Hazel Fatima Miron presented in the Pharmaceutical Practice category. They were one of the few students chosen to present their undergraduate research in the said categories.
The students showed their intellectual capabilities in presenting their paper in front of professionals. They also showcased the dedication and confidence of a true Vincentian Pharmacist, and soon, they will be joining them as their associates.
The PPhA conducts the annual National Convention together with its partners which is attended by pharmacists and pharmacy students from all over the country. The convention serves as a venue where pharmacists share knowledge with their colleagues and learn new things from the speakers. The event also serves as a reunion of sorts for its members as they are able to see former classmates or co-workers whom they have not seen for a while. Hazel Fatima Miron
