THIRD-YEAR pharmacy students of San Pedro College will sign a partnership agreement with the FDA-Center for Drug Regulation and Research XI on April 17 to formally launch the MedAlisto program.
The launching will be held at 10 a.m. at the San Pedro College- Main Campus, Interlink Office.
MedAlisto is a research initiative to address the ‘underreporting’ or lack of awareness and knowledge on reporting adverse drug effects or drug complaints to the Food and Drug Administration. The program allows pharmaceutical consumers to easily and efficiently report their complaints about a specific drug.
The pharmacy students who spearheaded the research are Ces Danielle S. Arias (research leader), Phoeb Kyla A. Adlaon, Ralph Benedict P. Andres, Yna Marie D. Ascarez, Reymon Christopher P. Credo, Sarah O. Dingding, Jhean G. Sarabosing, and Zhandy Marielle L. Vadil.
On launching day, MedAlisto will publicly release the MedAlisto QR image to be plastered on stickers, calling cards, and standees. These peripherals will be distributed to community pharmacies in Davao City, which will also kickstart the initiative.
The launching will be initiated through a program about the inner workings of MedAlisto, a brief tutorial on how to use it, and culminating with a MOA signing between the researchers, FDA-CDRR, and FDA-XI.
