P4 student Kingsley Ohikuare, president of SNPhA’s Touro chapter, said it was “rewarding to know that I was impacting an individual's life, whether directly or indirectly.” He said that many participants looked calm and at ease, knowing that access to a health and physical assessment was readily available.

“This was a wonderful way to collaborate with a local pharmacy in order to provide services to the public and help serve our community,” agreed Rima Jani, P2, TouroCOP’s SNPhA Diabetes Initiative Chair. “It was also another great experience for us to put the clinical skills we’ve learned to practice.”
