Angel Tree 2002
This year's Angel Tree is set up in the lobby of the Pharmacy building.
It is decorated with ornaments for students and faculty to take. Each ornament has a wish on it from a local church
or shelter. Please take an ornament, purchase the gift stated on the back, wrap the gift with the ornament on the outside,
and return the gift to the Christmas Tree by December 11th. All gifts will be distributed to the participating churches
and shelters for those who need them most. Take pride in helping those less fortunate this holiday season!
What has NCPA done this semester????
Well, I think it's safe to say that NCPA at Ferris is BACK and
better than ever!! As President since May, I have had the pleasure of watching this organization evolve because of its
dedicated members. It's amazing to me how much we've done in such a short time. I am very proud of all of
you who worked so hard to make a difference in the lives of so many people. That's what community pharmacy is all about,
and you are well on your way to being a wonderful pharmacist for your patients! Here is what we've accomplished so far...
