Create a video with your student chapter to describe the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration to improve patient care!
Videos can be as simple (recorded on your iPhone) or as elaborate (using video editing software) as you want to make them, as long as they are under 5 minutes. Submissions can be done in a creative, original or humorous way (think parodies and commercials!).

The presidential election recently took place and there are many questions about what the future holds for our country. Many people in the US have strong opinions and opposing political views, making it difficult to navigate social and professional settings when politics are discussed. I was encouraged by a presentation at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science in North Chicago, IL on pharmacy advocacy by Scott Meyers, Executive Vice President of ICHP. His passion for advocating for the rights of pharmacists gave me a new perspective on the world of politics. He urged us as pharmacy students to get involved now by attending legislative day in order to experience the lobbying process and supporting a bill that benefits our profession, or blocking one that adversely affects it...
