The National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) recently announced a nationwide tour to promote the Test2Learn Community-Based Pharmacogenomics Certificate Program this fall with its partner, the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy.
The NACDS has worked with the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy to transform the Test2Learn program into a groundbreaking platform on campuses that provides students with the opportunity to learn by using real genetic data during exercises that are highly interactive.
“NACDS is excited to announce the availability of University of Pittsburgh content through the NACDS educational platform, Learner Community, for the benefit of practicing pharmacists, students, and schools and colleges of pharmacy,” Steven C. Anderson, NACDS president and CEO, said. “Pharmacogenomics is considered a new frontier in patient care, with great promise for patient outcomes and public health, and the ‘train-the-trainer’ focus of the fall 2016 national tour will expand the knowledge of it exponentially.”
The program will include both online home study and live in-person features. Students will also have the option of taking personal genomic tests. Pharmacists who participate in the program will be able to engage in the in-person aspects of the program at each stop.
