Update on MPA Pharm Film Video Contest
Over the last several months, MPA has promoted the Pharm Film Video Contest in conjunction with this year’s Annual Convention & Exposition. Entries for the contest were due on Monday, Feb. 17; however, due to an insufficient number of submissions, online voting and voting at the Convention will not occur this year. In the value of the pharmacist category, MPA would like to congratulate Kris Frye and Christina Johnson, P4 student pharmacists at Ferris State University College of Pharmacy, for their winning video entitled “A Day in the Life of the Pharmacist.” The video highlights how pharmacists are there for their patients, helping them make the right choices and providing them with tools and knowledge to help meet their health goals. Members are encouraged to view the video online, or visit the Mackinac Ballroom on Level 5 during the Annual Convention to view their entry. In addition, watch MPA communications in the late spring for information on next year’s contest so that you can get an early start!
Please see the video contest packet for additional details, as next year's contest will be conducted in a similar manner. If you have any questions, please contact MPA Director of Communications Leah Ball at Leah@MichiganPharmacists.org.
