Join the #BPSACampaign!

Back in November we launched a new initiative – the BPSA Monthly Campaigns. The idea of the campaigns was to provide a talking point, picking a different theme each month, to encourage you all to get involved with the wider profession and share your views. The first campaign focused on pharmacy student numbers and degree entry requirements. The campaign ran predominantly on social media, and was intended as an opportunity for students to share their views on the subject. We had a great response from you all, and you can have a look at the discussions and comments under #BPSACampaign on Twitter and Facebook if you didn’t get the chance to get involved.
