Join fellow ACPA members for the local OTC / Self-Care Competition at Duquesne!

Come cheer on our student member teams as they compete for the honor of representing Duquesne in the state jeopardy-style competition at PPA Mid-Year.


Wednesday, January 10th from 6 - 8PM

Africa Room of the Student Union (one floor up from Starbucks)

600 Forbes Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15282


Please RSVP to Valerie Magda at magdav@duq.edu if you plan to attend.


We are also asking for your help in making this competition a success. We currently need:

1.  Question Item Writers: if you have an expertise or interest in OTC/Self Care, then we need your help! Questions are short and don’t take too long to write. An example of a past question would be:

Q: This herbal medication is commonly used by breastfeeding mothers to increase milk production

A: What is Fenugreek

Any questions for the competition must be emailed directly to Dr. Jamie McConaha at mcconahaj@duq.edu so that students do not see the questions ahead of time!

1.  Judges: The evening of the competition, we need 2-3 pharmacists to serve as judges to help provide ruling on answers and when to award points (students take this competition pretty seriously, so there is sometimes debate) 2.  Scorekeepers: this one is self-explanatory, but the more scorekeepers we have, the more efficiently we are able to move the competition along 3.  Timekeeper: one person to keep time as students only have a limited amount of time to answer each question


If you are able to help with any of the above or have any further questions, please email Dr. Jamie McConaha at mcconahaj@duq.edu."
