Event Spotlight: Rho Chi General Body Meeting

By Marie Huang

On September 22nd, members of Rho Chi gathered in Sullivan Hall Room 306 for the first General Body Meeting of the semester. As President Mohamed Dungersi stepped to the front of the room and reintroduced the executive board, students quietly helped themselves to scrumptious, hot slices of Domino‟s Pizza, and retreated to their seats. What was the main focus of this meeting? Upcoming events! With Pharmacy Organization Day on October 20th in the CVS Lounge, what better time is there than now to get involved?

This month, Rho Chi is hosting a series of Mock Residency Interviews on October 26th. If you‟re looking to polish those interpersonal communication skills in time for the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting, this event presents the perfect opportunity. Held in St. Albert‟s Hall, these interviews will last approximately five minutes and will be led by St. John‟s very own faculty members! These personal mock sessions will serve as great practice for the real deal; participants can expect to receive one-on-one feedback and advice on ways to improve their techniques.

Of course, the last week of October would be no fun if it weren’t for Halloween! Annually, student pharmacists and organizations across campus unite to teach elementary school children (from St. John the Baptist) what it means to make healthy choices on a holiday centered on sugary sweets, while engaging in traditional Halloween activities. On October 28th, Healthy Halloween is your chance to provide a service to your community by giving these kids something to celebrate – their well-being.

Come November, Rho Chi will also be hosting its second annual game show, “Who Wants To Be A PharmD?” Stu-dents of all years may form a team, with a maximum of three members, to compete for the ultimate title of student pharmacist genius. Fourteen clinically-based questions will be posed, three lifelines will be given (call a pharmacist, consult a textbook, and ask the audience), and epic prizes will be won. Stay tuned for more details in our next issue!
Questions and concerns can be addressed to any member of the Rho Chi E-Board. If you have a brilliant idea for a future event, do not hesitate to contact us!

Happy American Pharmacists Month!
