Aventura, Florida, March 16-17, 2019 – MEDISCA and their affiliates, LP3 Network and MEDISCA Network, continue their pursuit to increase awareness through the Student Pharmacist Compounding Competition (SPCC), with an unparalleled dedication to promote quality pharmaceutical compounding and contribute to the bright futures of students striving to meet the ever-growing needs of the patient population.
The 9th annual SPCC was hosted at LP3 Network’s state-of-the-art facility, where 54 SPCC regional champions from 18 U.S. colleges and universities competed for the national prize. MEDISCA Network oversaw teams of three engaged in a stimulating and high-intensity competition where students were required to apply theoretical and practical techniques to trivia, innovation and compounding challenges.
MEDISCA and their affiliates are proud to announce the University of South Carolina College of Pharmacy as the winner of the 2019 SPCC. Congratulations to Rebecca Caughman, Amee Shah, Jessica Shue and their supportive advisor Kathy Quarles Moore for their exceptional attention to detail and professional execution, earning them $1,000 worth of compounding supplies, paid attendance to LP3 Network’s educational Non-Sterile Training Session, and a lasting mention on their resumes.
MEDISCA and their affiliates would also like to congratulate Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Colorado (SSPPS) for winning the Pharmacy Advancement raffle. SSPPS wins the opportunity to own MEDISCA’s revolutionary MAZTM planetary mixer by completing a study using this technology.
“This is truly a remarkable, one-of-a-kind competition that we are always eager to not only sponsor, but to witness” said Antonio Dos Santos, President of MEDISCA, adding, ”there was a time when many pharmacy schools had moved away from teaching the science of customized pharmaceutical solutions. There has been a resurgence in this practice area and we take great pride in being able to offer an exceptional learning opportunity through SPCC for students studying compounded medications.”
MEDISCA and their affiliates, LP3 Network and MEDISCA Network, will now set their sights on 2020 and the milestone 10th SPCC anniversary, a testament to their commitment to pharmacy students and the compounding industry.
Congratulations to the winners and everyone who participated, sponsored and supported the SPCC. Learn more about SPCC by visiting spcc.medisca.com.
