The University of Georgia College of Pharmacy Student National Pharmaceutical Association (SNPhA) returned from their annual conference in Las Vegas, Nevada last week with top honors and rankings, grant awards, a newly appointed national position, approved legislation, a scholarship and even a winning t-shirt design.
Marin Abousaud, UGA SNPhA’s immediate past president, received the coveted J.B. Hills Chapter President of the Year Award, which recognizes extraordinary leadership among its 93 chapters. In addition, Abousaud was presented the Rite Aid Community Leader of the Year Award, which honors a SNPhA member who exhibits leadership on campus as well as within the community. She was cited as “…serving the underserved and cultivating diversity in the profession,” according to the presentation. Abousaud also was the recipient of the Rite Aid Endowed Scholarship due to her leadership, community outreach and academic achievements.
