A team of UH Hilo students is headed to the National Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA) competition, after finishing first in their category at the 10th annual Statewide finals held recently on O’ahu.

The Public Service Announcement Team B, led by Chapter President Lark Jason Canico, Kimberlee Statts, Vanessa Aguirre and Shane Naeole captured first place with their :30 PSA on “Concussions: Prevention, Recognition and Treatment,” and will compete in the HOSA Nationals June 24-27, 2015 in Anaheim, California.

The Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy has been granted continuation of full accreditation by the board of directors of the national agency that regulates pharmacy schools. The Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education granted the extension until June, 2017 following a focused on-site evaluation and separate review.

ACPE had accredited the college on a provisional basis until June 2015, as it sought funding for a permanent building, which was approved by the legislature last year. The continuation is contingent on continuous progress toward construction of the facility that enables the college to comply with all standards required for accreditation. An interim report is due in mid-October, followed by a comprehensive self-study next year. The next on-site visit is scheduled for 2017, or sooner if no timely progress is made on construction of the new building.
