NUS Pharmaceutical Society conferred WeCare @ North West Award

 

The NUS Pharmaceutical Society (NUSPS) received the WeCare @ North West Award from the North West Community Development Council (CDC) at the North West Volunteers’ Night this year.

 

Held on 2 March, the award was conferred to recognise the students’ efforts in volunteer work among the senior citizens through their programme “Know Your Medicines, Get it Right! @ Northwest”. A collaboration between NUSPS, North West CDC and Pharmaceutical Society of Singapore (PSS), this programme hopes to guide the elderlies to better understand the proper use of their medications.

 

Partnering with voluntary welfare organisations, neighbourhood links, senior activity centres and North West Grassroots Organisations, this programme has helped 700 residents received professional advice and guidance on drug usage since it started in the North West area three years ago.

 

Our heartiest congratulations to the NUSPS members!
