WSU Applebaum AMCP officer Fadi Manuel wins regional scholarship
Fadi Manuel, P4 student and immediate-past president of the Wayne State chapter of the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy, was awarded the annual AMCP Midwest affiliate scholarship at the AMCP Midwest’s Detroit Day of Education, which was held last weekend at Detroit’s MGM Grand Hotel.
The award was given to two pharmacy students in the Midwest region to recognize their outstanding academic achievements and interest in Managed Care Pharmacy as well as to increase opportunities for involvement with the National Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy and the AMCP Midwest Affiliate.
“It is a great honor to be selected for this award. AMCP as an organization has been an integral part of my pharmacy school career. I still the remember a couple of years ago when we were just starting the organization and getting students interested in non-traditional pharmacy and I’m proud that we are now gaining national and regional recognition as a chapter,” said Manuel, who is looking to pursue a career in health economics and outcomes research or managed care once he graduates.
AMCP Midwest offers two scholarships yearly to help students attend AMCP Nexus, a national conference that allows pharmacy students to network and learn about managed care.
“The AMCP Nexus national meeting is a fantastic opportunity for students to learn about managed care pharmacy and network with professionals from all over the country. The national AMCP meeting has many resources specifically designed for the benefit of students such as: Student-specific educational programming, the residency and fellowship showcase, student and new practitioner reception, and the student pharmacist committee meeting,” said Dr. Manjula Jayabalan, AMCP Midwest president.
“Our chapter is so proud of Fadi,” said Jackie Fleury, WSU AMCP president-elect. “From leading our Wayne State team to second place in the AMCP National P&T Competition last year and now with this Midwest Scholarship, he has been a driving force behind the success of our chapter. I look forward to working with him this year as we institute the first local P&T Competition here at Eugene Applebaum. The winning team of our local competition will represent our college at the national level.”
