KITCHENER – The University of Waterloo’s School of Pharmacy is pleased to present an exciting health information program designed for the general public. Beginning April 26 and running for six consecutive weeks uWaterloo’s Mini Pharmacy School is a unique opportunity for members of the public to discover and explore fascinating topics in pharmacy and health. “The Waterloo School of Pharmacy is committed to being directly involved with our community. This program is just one way that we can reach out and share our knowledge with the public” says Nancy Waite, Interim Hallman Director of the School of Pharmacy.

Building on the success of 2009’s inaugural program, Mini Pharmacy School provides six evenings of lectures that give participants a chance to learn directly from uWaterloo experts in a relaxed, informative and entertaining atmosphere. There are no pre-requisites, homework or exams! Each evening participants will enjoy two seminars presented by instructors from Waterloo’s School of Pharmacy.

Participants are encouraged to get actively involved by asking questions and interacting directly with presenters. During the final session May 31, participants who have attended the majority of sessions will be recognized in a short ‘graduation’ ceremony and will receive a completion certificate for their participation.
