Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year! Abiding by the Christmas spirit usually embodied by acts of kindness and love, Nairobi University Pharmacy Students’ Association (NUPSA) in collaboration with Kenya Pharmacy Students’ Association (KEPhSA) organized to visit Mogra children’s home to spend time and have fun with the children. This was to be a joint event with other local chapters offering Pharmacy. Funds were to be raised by the chapters to facilitate the event.
Pharmacy Students from the University of Nairobi flooded the streets on the 19TH of November, 2021 to mark the peak of the Antibiotic Resistance Awareness Week, in a fun filled campaign aimed at sensitizing the public on the proper use of medication and the progressing nuisance that is bacterial resistance to antibiotics. The students marched from their school singing rhymes created and fanned by the need at the moment.
On September 25th, 2021, the Nairobi University Students Association (NUPSA) took part in the World Pharmacists Day- an interuniversity competition event that was held at Mount Kenya University from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. There were six chapters in total that were present; NUPSA, KEMUPSA, KUPSA, JPSA, MKUPSA, and KUPhSA. The theme was 'Together through tough times’.
Every year there’s a new lot of KSCE leavers that are admitted to The University of Nairobi and last year wasn’t an exception. In September, Nairobi University Pharmacy Students’ Association (NUPSA) welcomed its first group of admitted student pharmacists and this was done in Chiromo Campus. After their registration at the Associate Dean’s Office, they were directed to the NUPSA Help desk ‘tent’ where they registered and made payments for lab coats, name tags as well as a NUPSA Registration fee.
