Urban High School Initiatives
Our school devotes resources and energy towards helping high school students better understand the profession of pharmacy and the opportunities available within it. Through a variety of field trips and presentations, our students help stimulate within Connecticut’s high school population, an awareness of and an interest in pharmacy. The school also provides resources for pharmacists who are called upon to participate in a career day events. Contact the Office of Public Engagement for a copy of our presentation materials.
Our reputation for working with urban high school programs has spread to cities such as New Britain, Hartford, and Bridgeport as the popularity of our program grows. We have also continued our work with the Stratford school system. Students from each of these school districts visited with our students either at our campus or at their location. In addition to these larger visit based projects, our presentations on pharmacist preparation and careers have been updated and made available to a number of pharmacists throughout the state from Stamford to Granby for them to use in their local school career day events.
