Earlier this year, PharmD students, Arianne Duong and Stephanie Heeney, collaborated with other health sciences students and created a campaign to raise awareness about the importance of medication adherences.

Their campaign, which included radio spots (listen), UW Health Science bus ads, individual outreach, video, and social media, was named a Finalist in the National Award category!

The Script Your Future campaign is a competition designed to engage health profession students and faculty across the nation by encouraging teams to develop creative ideas, events, and initiatives to raise public awareness about the importance of medication adherence.

The campaign included more than 135 public and private stakeholder organizations, including Challenge sponsors—the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP), the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) Foundation, the American Medical Association (AMA), the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA), the American Pharmacists Association (APhA) and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN).

Congratulations to Arianne, Stephanie and the UW Script Your Future team for your well-deserved recognition!
