Monica Cape, president of PPO, is enthusiastic about this new student organization and its potential to build relationships within the college. At PPO’s monthly meetings, preprofessional students hear from UTCPPS faculty and professional division students whom they might not ordinarily meet. PPO students, closely engaged with Pharmacy Student Council (PSC), are now organizing additional activities and projects that will enhance the experience of preprofessional students and prepare them for what’s ahead. PPO’s executive board is rounded out by Kelly Gaffney as VP, Anik Patel and secretary, and Steve Hammersmith as treasurer. Pharmacy students who wish to get involved with PPO can find the organization’s information in their display case in Wolfe Hall or on the flyers posted in the Wolfe Hall computer lab. They can also contact advisor, Deb Sobczak, or Shawn Mills, PSC president. Dr. Curtis Black, ’72, was recently featured in UT News following his election as national vice president for finance for Phi Kappa Phi.
