The National Consumers League (NCL) and its partners this week announced the winners of the fourth annual Script Your Future Medication Adherence Team Challenge, a competition designed to engage health profession students and faculty across the nation by encouraging teams to develop creative ideas, events, and initiatives to raise public awareness about the importance of medication adherence. The 2015 Medication Adherence Team Challenge is part of the national Script Your Future public awareness campaign coordinated by NCL. The campaign includes more than 135 public and private stakeholder organizations, including APhA. This year, the Script Your Future National Awards went to the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy and the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, with the University of Charleston School of Pharmacy earning an Honorable Mention. "Pharmacists have a unique opportunity, at the medication dispensing stage, to help patients understand the value of their prescription medications, to help alleviate confusion, and to underline the need for adherence, making a real difference in patients' lives. We are excited to be involved in this program and what it means for the future of America's adherence," said APhA Executive Vice President and CEO Thomas E. Menighan, BSPharm, MBA, ScD (Hon), FAPhA.
