For Immediate Release

Forty first-year University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo student pharmacists will recite the Oath of a Pharmacist at the Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy’s White Coat Ceremony Sunday, October 18. The virtual event begins at 10:00 a.m. and can be viewed via livestream on the DKICP Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/DKICP/). A Facebook account is not needed to view the livestream.

The ceremony signifies the rite of passage for student pharmacists entering their first year in the professional program.

The ceremony will also recognize one PGY1 pharmacy resident who is continuing training with a DKICP faculty on O`ahu and one graduate student beginning his research journey in the Ph.D. program at DKICP.

The program features Lucinda Maine, executive vice president and CEO of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP). AACP is a leading advocate for quality pharmacy education and works to develop strong academic scholars and leaders.

The students will also be addressed by UH Hilo Chancellor Bonnie D. Irwin, DKICP Dean Carolyn Ma, and Mayor Harry Kim.
