AACP Student Community Service Awards, sponsored by Teva
At Teva, we believe that quality healthcare should be accessible in the United States - and around the world. And to that end, we proudly recognize the efforts of those who share our vision, drive for results, and help others live their lives.
Since 2009, Teva Pharmaceuticals has sponsored the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) Student Community-Engaged Service Award that recognizes four student-led projects resulting in important care for the underserved.
The award focuses on programs developed and delivered by doctor of pharmacy students enrolled at AACP-member colleges or schools of pharmacy. It is intended to encourage students and faculty to design and build programs of community-engaged service learning, deliver consumer education about medication use, expand access to affordable medications, and improve the public's health.
In addition to a commemorative prize, the winning pharmacy college or school is awarded $10,000 to be used exclusively to support the expansion of the recognized program or new community-engaged service projects. Participating students also receive a $5,000 financial stipend to help enhance or sustain their efforts or support travel to attend and present their projects at professional meetings. For more information about the AACP Student Community-Engaged Service Award and how to apply, visit the AACP website. The four groups were chosen for their outstanding programs delivering consumer education about medication use, expanding access to affordable healthcare, and improving the public's health.
