What is Pharmacy and Health Sciences Day?
Pharmacy and Health Sciences day is a day devoted to the professional development of students within the Drake University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. The day consists of a morning session, which includes a silent auction, exhibition hall from healthcare related organizations, and a plethora of mini-discussion events, each of which features different topics pertinent to aspiring health care professionals today. The afternoon session consists of a keynote address from Kevin McCauley, M.D., the presentation of a variety of awards to alumni, students, and faculty, as well as a State of the College Address by the Dean of the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.
Pharmacy and Health Sciences Day is held once a year on campus for all pre-pharmacy, pharmacy, and health sciences students. Pharmacy classes are cancelled for the day, and all pharmacy students P1-P4 are required to attend. Students are expected to sign in during the morning and afternoon sessions. Pre-pharmacy students are required to be at any event that does not conflict with the times they will be in class. Health sciences students are encouraged to attend any sessions during the day that do not interfere with their classes.
2012 Keynote Speaker: Kevin McCauley
Kevin McCauley graduated from the Medical College of Pennsylvania (Drexel School of Medicine) in 1992. He served in the United States Navy as Flight Surgeon to a heavy-lift helicopter squadron at Marine Corps Air Station Tustin in Orange County, California, and subsequently to an F/A-18 Hornet training squadron at Marine Corps Air Station El Toro. Dr. McCauley became interested in the problem of addiction after witnessing the success of the Navy’s program for treating pilots with alcohol problems. He advocates strongly for the rights of recovering persons as patients and as valued members of society.
