The American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP) aims to prepare students for careers providing comprehensive pharmaceutical care to older adults.  Through guest lectures, service activities, and shadowing experiences, students gain a thorough understanding of the unique medication challenges posed by caring for geriatric patients.  While simultaneously giving back to the senior citizens of the Pittsburgh community, students also have the opportunity to expand their knowledge of geriatric pharmacotherapy and the complex relationships that exist between patient age and medication response.
