Doctor of Pharmacy Students Celebrate World Health Day

On the occasion of World Health Day, and under the supervision of faculty members, the students of Birzeit University’s Doctor of Pharmacy program launched a campaign "Your Health is Our Concern" on April 7, 2014.

The awareness campaign targeted university students and staff to acquaint them with drugs treating blood pressure, diabetes, osteoporosis and others. Campaign organizers also provided information about the importance of medicinal herbs and how to use them.

Students and staff participated in the campaign by having their sugar levels and blood pressure checked. They also participated in a knowledge contest where the winners were awarded prizes. Moreover, the students designed posters illustrating different diseases, their treatment and methods of prevention.

The campaign was a campus extra-curricular activity aimed at providing services and knowledge to the university and local community.
