Bridging the Gap
Bridging the Gap is an initiative dedicated to enriching the education of our members as well as supporting the transition from being a SNPhA member to an active NPhA member. After successful completion of your pharmacy program, your professional involvement can continue in our parent organization, the National Pharmaceutical Association (NPhA).
2020 - 2021 Bridging the Gap Theme
Ubuntu is an African philosophy loosely translated as, “I am because we are”. It is an acknowledgement of our interconnectedness, kindness, compassion and return to the heart of humanity. Ubuntu “speaks of the very essence of being human...you are generous, you are hospitable, you are friendly and caring and compassionate. You share what you have. It is to say, ‘my humanity is inextricably bound up in yours”(Desmond Tutu). What Ubuntu and Bridging the Gap have in common is a drive toward community building through collaboration, fellowship and sharing. This year, let us commit to exhibiting #UbuntuEnergy.
