Pharmacy students take part in Self Care Week
Students from the University are working in collaboration with Living Well, a joint programme between the Council and the three NHS Bradford district and Craven clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), to deliver self-care messages to people across the district.
Living Well aims to make it easier for everyone, everywhere, every day to live a healthy and active lifestyle and has a large number of events taking place during this year's Self Care Week which takes place 18-24 November.
Second year pharmacy students will be supporting the initiative at a number of venues across the district, as well as delivering self-care messages to staff and students in the University. All are welcome to visit the stand in Richmond Atrium between 10-2pm Monday to Friday.
The NHS 10 year Plan highlights a key role for pharmacists in the prevention of health inequalities.
Helen Cook, Senior Lecturer in Clinical Pharmacy at the University, said: “This collaboration is developing the future workforce, providing an opportunity for students to implement their learning from the classroom, whilst benefiting the local population.
“I encourage as many people as possible to come to the stands and meet our students who will be encouraging people to take part in the make one change challenge and pledge one change they will make to improve their own health.
