Pharmacy students honored for leadership, service and clinical skills
Date:5/15/2014

HOUSTON, May 15, 2014 University of Houston (UH) pharmacy students wrapped up the spring semester with a round of awards for excellence in leadership, professional service and clinical skills. Five students three of whom graduated last week earned kudos at the state level from the Texas Society of Health-System Pharmacists (TSHP).

Each winning team member received a $75 cash prize, plaque and complimentary registration to the 2015 TSHP Annual Seminar.
