Third-year College of Pharmacy student Hayley Terlizzi was recently awarded the Pharmacist Mutual ACA Foundation Community Pharmacy Travel Grant by the American College of Apothecaries Research and Education Foundation.
The grant allowed Terlizzi to attend the ACA ACVP Annual Conference and Expo in St. Pete Beach, Florida, Feb. 6-9.
Making a good impression
In a recent press release from the American College of Apothecaries Research and Education Foundation, Daniel Krinsky, R.Ph., associate professor of pharmacy practice at NEOMED, noted Terlizzi’s impact on the University.
“I’ve not known many students with the level of energy, enthusiasm and interest that Hayley demonstrates as it relates to co-curricular activities and being involved outside the classroom,” said Krinsky. “She is very interested in ‘giving back’ and serving others, so I anticipate her attendance at this conference would be paid back many times through her sharing of information with other students and faculty here at NEOMED. I look forward to hearing and reading about Hayley’s accomplishments during her career, as she has many qualities that will lead to significant successes.”
Leading by example
Terlizzi is a student member of the American College of Veterinary Pharmacists (ACVP) and the American College of Apothecaries (ACA). She also played a major role in creating NEOMED’s student chapter of the American College of Veterinary Pharmacists (ACVP). Terlizzi now serves as the group’s president.
