PittPharmacy’s Student National Pharmaceutical Association, (SNPhA), won the University of Pittsburgh Blue Stars Red Carpet Cultural Program of the Year Award for their Black History Cultural Showcase.  SNPhA collaborated with their sister medical and dental organizations, the Student National Medical and Dental Associations, SNMA and SNDA, respectively. The Student National Pharmaceutical, Medical, and Dental Associations collaborated to raise money for the North Side Coalition for Fair Housing, a non-profit organization that provides housing and other necessary resources for an under-served population of Pittsburgh.

The OCC (Outside the Classroom Curriculum) Global and Cultural Awareness approved program celebrated black culture featuring a showcase of performances from the Ya’baso African dance team, Anointed Steps of Faith, Some of God’s Children (SOGC) gospel choir, Spoken Word poetry written and performed by senior undergraduate student Khadijah Adamu, and reflections on history and culture at the University of Pittsburgh and across the country as a whole.
