Four students from Midwestern University's Chicago College of Pharmacy (CCP) were recently selected for the Pharmacy Quality Alliance-CVS Health (PQA-CVS) Foundations Scholars program. Midwestern University students Christopher Kapolas, Kavita Parikh, Anne Reda, and Riley Stelzer were selected for this honor from applicants from pharmacy schools across the nation.

As part of their applications, the students submitted a concept for a unique project they will develop throughout the academic year with the assistance of a mentor and then present during the PQA Annual Meeting in May 2017. The CCP students will work on their pharmacy-related projects throughout the year in addition to completing extensive course work and clinical experiences.

"We received a number of strong applications and are excited to see how our scholars learn, grow, and develop as quality-minded professionals over the next year," said Hannah Fish, Associate Director for Education and Communications at the Pharmacy Quality Alliance. She continued, "PQA is pleased to partner with the CVS Health Foundation to offer this unique program for students. We are confident that through this program we will create future pharmacist leaders who can champion medication use quality that enhances patient care and outcomes in healthcare."

For nearly 25 years, Midwestern University's Chicago College of Pharmacy has been providing an outstanding pharmacy education for its students. The college prepares students to be compassionate patient-centered pharmacists who are leaders in their field.
