Graduate Student BBQ 2017

The graduate student BBQ event is an annual event that brings together all master and PhD students in the college of pharmacy and nutrition. This creates a platform for the association to inform graduate students about AAPS as well as encourage them to be an integral part of the association activities. In September 2017, AAPS U of S chapter sponsored the annual Graduate students BBQ.

Summer Student Poster Presentation Day

Professional Development is an integral part of the AAPS vision, goals and activities. In August 2017, the AAPS organized an event to increase professional development in the college of pharmacy and nutrition. This event was aimed at promoting poster design, preparation and presentation skills by providing incentives for the summer students in forms of certificate of participation and gift bags.

The health sciences and research expo is the largest scientific gathering on the University of Saskatchewan campus bringing students, staff and faculty from all facets of health science research areas. The expo seeks to promote future research synergism by providing a platform to researchers across several disciplines including but not limited to pharmacy, medicine, nutrition, nursing, dentistry, kinesiology, veterinary medicine, public health etc. The choice by the U of S AAPS chapter to participate in this event is coined out of its vision to be involved in platforms that encourage multi-disciplinary research.
The chapter was involved in scientific communication through poster presentation by various members of the chapter. The chapter also committed to this research expo financially (250 CAD). A 50 CAD MasterCard gift door prize was sponsored by the AAPS chapter. The AAPS chapter had a display booth at the event with representatives enlightening students about the benefits of joining the association. At the end of the day, the association was able to recruit two new postdocs and a new master student.
