The Alpha Group Memorial Award in Community Pharmacy – Endowment Fund
The Alpha Group is a dedicated group of independent pharmacy owners who provide the communities of Newfoundland and Labrador with essential health care services and represent a vital part of the health care delivery system. The award is given in memory of the members of the Alpha Group who have made a significant difference in the lives of their patients and who have now passed on. The award will be presented to a student in the 3rd or 4th year of the Bachelor of Science (Pharmacy) program who has demonstrated excellence in community pharmacy practice during the completion of their structured practice experience placement. Preference will be given to students who have demonstrated excellence within an independent pharmacy practice setting.
The President’s Award is presented in recognition of service as President of The Alpha Group. The Award recognizes the leadership and time commitments of the President as they step down from their volunteer terms. As a volunteer organization itself, The Alpha Group understands and cherishes the contributions of volunteers who generously give their time and expertise to their organizations and to the profession at large.
