Congratulations to Kevin Carrasco, Steve Kim, and Ben Malcolm for winning the 2013 CPhA Quiz Bowl in competition with 7 other CA schools of pharmacy

With exams starting the following Monday, Touro's P1 and P2 students had to leave the meeting before the Quiz Bowl.  Touro's P3 Ben Malcolm and P4s Kevin Carrasco and Steve Kim were the only PharmD students left.  Even though they were outnumbered by the students representing the other schools, the Touro team won first place.  Faculty members Dr. Keith Yoshizuka, Dr. Tony Chou, and Dr. Layla Yousify cheered the team on and sent this message and photo. 

We are very proud of our 3 students for representing our school and exemplifying the high caliber or work, effort, and dedication that Touro University stands for.

Design submitted by Touro University California’s Chapter of the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR) is selected as the official T-shirt design for this year's ISPOR International Meeting in New Orleans

The design, chosen from among several submissions, was inspired by the Jazz culture of New Orleans.  The motif pays homage to the vintage Blue Note Jazz album covers of the 1940s and '50s.

Ideas came from contributors Dylan Mezzio, Eric Wager, Brendan Kelly, Tran Nguyen, Jessica Ly, and Bryan Nakamura.  Much of the credit must go to Chris Johnson, Eric Wager’s friend, who helped transform the ideas into the winning graphic for the back of the T-shirt. 

In addition to the $100 award, the design gives credit to the Chapter, and will serve as a great way to make a name for Touro University California at the International Conference.
