EVENTS OF THE YEAR
PIZZA and CHILL NIGHT 2018
It was on the 28th October 2018 when PharmNotts had continued its legacy of imparting change for the best by organising the first ever bonding night that was not limited to its members, but limited to its members, but also to non members who are students of the School of Pharmacy. The event aimed to strengthen bonds between the members whilst giving them the opportunity to unwind from the hectic student lives.
BLOOD DONATION DRIVE 2018
“There can be no greater joy than that of saving souls.”
With that saying, we organised a Blood Donation Drive annually. Last year it was held on 26th and 27th of November between 10a.m to 4p.m, conducted in collaboration with National Blood Centre. Likewise with the past blood donationdrives, it primarily aims at raising awareness on the importance of donating blood. Thankfully enough, the 2 days long event attracted many students and staff. In fact, the National Blood Bank announced that there was a total of 140 blood donors! However, we still strongly encourage more people to participate in this event in the future!!
YSP INDUSTRIAL VISIT 2019
Have you ever wondered about the amount of effort that goes into the little pills that bring you so much relief from diseases? From researching possible medicines in the lab to manufacturing it in factories and finally, to pharmacies to be provided to patients; In the world of pharmacy, many processes are involved to engineer such miracles that are so common nowadays we sometimes take for granted.
In PharmNotts, we believe in leaning through experience and try our very best to add value to our members’ student experiences. On the 22nd of January, we organized an industrial visit to the prestigious manufacturing plant of YSP pharmaceuticals.
DISCOVERING CAREERS IN HEALTH SCIENCES 2019: ALUMNI SHARING
This year, we collaborated with BioMed Society, Careers Office and The Faculty of Science to organize a career-related event. We invited several UNM alumni, each have respectively graduated from BioMedical Science, Pharmaceutical and Health Sciences (PHS) and Pharmacy (MPHARM) programmes, to share their respective career choices and pathways. This event aimed to explore and gather information for internships and future career prospects, develop a better understanding of the requirements and expectations of employers in health science industries alongside preparing students for the transition from university to the work environment.
ROUTE DES FLEURS 2019
“Follow us on the journey of Routes Des Fleurs, where every flower petal scattered is another bittersweet memory cherished.”
The PharmNotts Ball is organised annually to create meaningful memories with MPharm Year 2 before they depart to the UK, and graduating PHS students. This event is built on good times, friendships and hardships that all of them went through together, leaving us with a sense of nostalgia and bittersweet warmth.
Amidst all the stress that radiates around us, we sometimes tend to forget to have fun and make memories with others. We hope that the MPharm students make more meaningful memories in the UK, and also wish good luck to the graduating PHS students going into the workforce or continuing their studies. They’ve left an imprint in UNM, and we hope that they would leave even more meaningful imprints in the future, no matter where they decide to go.
