The Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy has signed exchange agreements with two more universities in Thailand to give aspiring pharmacists opportunities to gain international perspectives and help advance pharmaceutical knowledge and practice.

Pharmacy faculty at Silpakorn University, west of Bangkok proper in the Nakhon Pathom province, and Siam University in Bangkok, are involved in the arrangements, which are the third and fourth to be signed by the college.

The program will help the college broaden its reputation and give students in their fourth year of pharmacy school international exposure, both culturally and educationally. It will also provide study and training opportunities in Hawai’i for students from the Thai universities.

Areas of study include Advanced Pharmacy Practice experiences,Pharmaceutical Care, Pharmaceutical Sciences Research, and Organization of joint research projects. But could later be expanded.

UH Hilo’s Model United Nations Team Hui Na Lahui Huipu turned in another strong performance at this year’s National Model United Nations conference in New York. UH Hilo earned Honorable Mention, a third place award presented to teams placing in the top fifteen percent.

The event attracts more than 5,000 students worldwide,who work in conference settings to propose resolutions on issues ranging from regional conflicts to economic and social development. This year, UH Hilo represented Greece
during the five intense days of simulated UN deliberations.

This team was very different from the groups in previous years, as one of the two members competed for the first time and the other served as a staff member for the first time at the National Model United Nations conference, which makes their achievement all the more remarkable.
