Palomares Day

Palomares Day 2014Students are inspired to become pharmacists or health care professionals because of a relationship fostered between the Pomona Unified School District, SIHS and WesternU’s Pomona Health Career Ladder program. This partnership has led to a strong pipeline of extended activities through the middle and high school grades.

Palomares Academy of Health Sciences (PAHS) 10th-graders took a field trip to the WesternU College of Pharmacy Compounding Lab Wednesday, May 21, 2014. They came to learn firsthand how to compound non-medicated toothpaste during Palomares Day, which is annually organized by WesternU’s Latino Medical Student Association.  For the full video click here.

On May 10, 2013 the Palomares Academy of Health Sciences (PAHS) 10th-grade students learned how to compound lip balm and skin cream.
