Over the last few weeks, PANTHERx® Specialty Pharmacy has teamed with the Consortium for Public Education to provide students with the opportunities to apply STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) skills to real-life workplace challenges. We have had the pleasure of hosting teams from the Avonworth and Blackhawk school districts and have been immensely impressed by how innovative, progressive, and smart these young students are. On November 16 we were visited by Avonworth, and the next week on November 23, we hosted students from Blackhawk.
Specialty pharmacies face a unique set of patient challenges due to volatile and sensitive nature of the treatments we provide. This includes medications that require refrigerators to maintain a specific temperature. Our discussions with the students from both school districts specifically assessed how we could improve these technologies to better serve our patients.
