The NUS Greater Series aims to raise awareness on pilanthropy and its impact on society. The series features talks by leading minds on topics such as service to the community, personal well-being and mental resilience.

NUS Pharmacy collaborates with the Development Office to present our perspectives on the recent changes in the pharmacy landscape to our donors and friends.

As part of the NUS Greater Good Series, a lunchtime discussion was held on 4th April at the Regent Hotel Singapore on the topic “Advancing the role of the pharmacist through Education, Research and Collaboration”.

Moderated by A/P Rachel Ee, the luncheon included lively presentations by prominent members of the pharmacy community such as A/P Lita Chew, A/P Alexandare Chan and Ms Joyce Lim.

Participants discussed the National Pharmacy Strategy which aims to transform pharmacy services across Singapore, and explored the partnerships between NUS Pharmacy and the pharmaceutical industry, all of which are efforts towards our mission to advance the health and well-being of the Singapore population.

Through this session, participants gained a deeper appreciation of the developments that are taking place across the entire pharmacy sector in Singapore.

We are glad that the talks were well-received. We would like to thank all our distinguished speakers and guests for taking their precious time off to grace this event as well as for a lively and engaging Q&A session.
