The PDA sponsors the Student Leadership award which was won by Erin Gilmour who, as president of the student-led Aberdeen Interprofessional Education Society, has been heavily involved in chairing the organisation, as well as promoting its offerings to students, and organising learning events, social activities and committee meetings throughout the year.

During the year Erin updated all of the society’s social media outlets and agreed a standard format with the committee as to how information would appear on their website, Twitter and Facebook pages. The interest subsequently expressed has been notable as at the end of the year the society finished with their highest number of members ever at 256; being the largest society at Robert Gordon University (RGU). PDA would like to congratulate Erin for winning the award.

Pictured with Erin are PDA Head of Policy, Alima Batchelor who was one of the category judges, PDAU Scotland Regional Official Cheryl Smyth and PDAU Network at Boots representative for West Scotland, Paul Flynn who presented Erin with her award.

The judges were also impressed by the quality of nominations of the other four finalists: Conor Thorne, Kelsey Drummond and Vivien Yu all of RGU, and Sagarika Ojha from the University of Strathclyde. Each of the finalists also deserve recognition for the impact of their leadership among pharmacy students.

Other PDA representatives at the event included PDA Chairman, Mark Koziol, PDA Director, Paul Day and Scotland Regional Committee member, Iain Speirits who was a judge in the “Innovations in Clinical Development in Cardiology Pharmacy” category.

The PDA is pleased to be a sponsor and active participant in these awards and appreciates the opportunity to celebrate the great pharmacy practice that exists in Scotland.
