February 4, 2019 - POCATELLO, ID
Students at the Meridian branch of the College of Pharmacy will host their annual Trivia Night Fundraiser in Meridian on February 22, 2019. This event is an opportunity for the community to gather with student pharmacists to enjoy delicious food and lots of fun. It is also an important fundraiser to ensure College of Pharmacy students have the tools they need for a variety of community health outreach programs throughout the year.
This year's event is Friday, February 22nd at 6 p.m. at the West Ada School District Auditorium in Meridian. Guests will enjoy dinner, drinks, dessert, raffle, silent auction and trivia.
Every year, College of Pharmacy students provide flu shots, health screenings and health information to their community. Events like the Spaghetti Feed in Pocatello and the Trivia Night in Meridian help provide the students with the materials they need. Last year, the American Pharmacists Association-Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP) of Idaho State University received a national award from the American Pharmacists Association for their work in providing vaccinations and information about immunizations to the community. In addition to Operation Immunization, other outreach efforts include Operation Heart, Operation Diabetes and Generation Rx (an educational program that aims to increase public awareness of prescription drug abuse).
Admission to the Meridian Trivia Night is $5 per person or $18 for a family of four. Raffle tickets can be purchased at the event. More info can be found by visiting http://bit.ly/CoP_TriviaNight_2019
