University of Ghana pharmacy students praised over partnership with zipline and others

It is uncommon to hear of Pharmacy students engaging in the conversational areas of entrepreneurship, a conduit known for business and arts students. 

However, our believe is not equal to the leadership of Benjamin Aboagye, the incumbent President and Vice President of the school of Pharmacy in the University of Ghana. 

In the quest to bridge the knowlede gap between entrepreneurship and health related services, for students and prepare them for the world of work , the department organised a "pharmaprenuership" program which saw the presence of prominent companies like Zipline, pharmedia and others.

The program was graced by the former President for the University of Ghana Students Representative Council Dr.Moses Baafi , who also doubles as a Lawyer and other prominent representatives in the Ayawaso West wuguon constituency. 

The organised program was dubbed "pharmapreneurship", envisaged to boost the entrepreneurship spirit among students in the school of Pharmacy and the school of health in the University of Ghana legon. 

Zipline , a pharmaceutical shipping company known for shiping drugs with drones upon delivery in the country were present with some key notes speakers addressing the need for pharmacy students to have interest in establishing business on their own after school without necessarily relying on the government for job placement

In the light of this, Pharmedia threw more light on the businesses, entrepreneurship areas and side hustle jobs available for medical oriented students. 

In acknowledgement of the birthday of the Vice President of the Department, Mr. Benjamin Aboagye Agyapong which followed few days after, the program saw the light of the day. 

It will be on records that, under the auspices of the 2021/22 executive body the department have soared to a steady growth as compared to the previous years. 

It is our hope that such programs will be organised frequently to remind students to have an enrich knowledge in entrepreneurship, a key solution for self discovery in our competitive world.
