Acadeny of Pharmacy Technicians News
Fort Meade Middle/Senior has received a $4,500 STEM education grant for its pharmacy program from the Motorola Solutions Foundation. The Innovation Generation program awards organizations that foster and support STEM initiatives for teachers and U.S. preschool through university students - especially girls and under-represented minorities.
A group of students at Fort Meade Middle-Senior High School may have seen their future. They recently took a class trip to WellDyne, a mail-order pharmacy and medical management firm in northwest Polk County. What they saw there was pharmacy technicians at work. It made a pretty big impression. After the trip, the number of students signed up for the school's new "Academy of Pharmacy Technicians" tripled.
It was no ordinary field trip when a small army of teenagers piled into the headquarters of WellDyneRx last week.
A new partnership between Lakeland-based WellDyne - a pharmacy services firm - and FMMSHS has created the Academy of Pharmacy Technicians, which will hold its first classes in the fall. Students accepted into the program will get a jump start on a career in the pharmacy industry or related fields, perhaps taking a job at WellDyne itself some day.
