    Pharmacy Technician Students visit Austin 

    Pharmacy technician students from the San Jacinto College North Campus attended an educational fieldtrip to the Texas State Board of Pharmacy and The University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy on April 19, 2013. All are connected by an interest in medicines – how they work, how they are made, and how they are used by people to prevent and treat disease. Students raised funds for the trip through various fundraisers including T-shirt sales, candle sales, and Gator Day sales (Chic –fil-A sandwiches).

    The Texas State Board of Pharmacy’s Director, Allison Benz, informed the students about laws and rules relating to the practice of pharmacy in Texas. The University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy Senior Academic Advisor, Gregory Caldera, explained what goes on inside its classrooms and laboratories and how it affects people around the world.  The students were able to experience an educational tour and presentation on information about pharmacy career options, in-depth detail on the admissions process, and tips on putting together a strong application for pharmacy school.

    Note: Photos include Fall 2012 and Spring 2013 pharmacy technician students at various events including: classroom labs (CPR, IV Admixture), Gator Day, Pharmacy Appreciation Day, State Board of Pharmacy trip, The Methodist Hospital Pharmacy tour, and the UT School of Pharmacy Trip.

    Baseball Play Pink Thank You 

    Playpink2013logo_72Thanks to everyone who contributed to the Fourth Annual Play Pink Game and fundraising event for Angel Flight South Central. Despite the rain on Saturday, we raised more money than any previous year… more than $4,500 to support a great cause and charitable organization. That says so much about the caring nature and generosity of San Jacinto College, the community and the baseball program. We had people from all campuses help or donate and it was by all means a group effort to make this event such a success this season. We could not have done it without you!
