Students from the West Virginia University School of Pharmacy hosted a Senior Olympics for local seniors to stress the importance of physical fitness.
The student pharmacists were partnered with Sundale Rehabilitation – Long Term Care through the WVU Center for Service and Learning for their Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experience course, which promotes service to the community.
“The purpose of the Senior Olympics project was to educate senior citizens about the importance of staying physically active,” WVU student pharmacist Walter Oben, said. “In addition, they were able to interact and socialize with members of other local assisted living facilities and had fun while learning how to stay healthy and active.
