FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Albuquerque, UNM - For the third straight year, two University of New Mexico College of Pharmacy (UNM COP) students have been elected to top regional offices for the American Pharmacists Association - Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP).

The UNM COP is part of Region 8, the largest APhA region that includes 12 schools from California, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado and New Mexico.

Elected officers Kimberly Neff and Angela Sobien are both second-year students at the COP. With their appointments, UNM has become the first school in the 40-year history of the APhA-ASP to have its students hold top regional offices for three straight years.

Neff will be serving as regional delegate. Her duties will include coordinating and convening a regional caucus at the APhA annual meeting in Washington D.C., and performing policy-related duties as assigned by the APhA-ASP Executive Committee.

Sobien will be serving as a regional member-at-large and will represent Region 8 at various meetings in her new position. She will also help the chapters in the region promote membership, improve participation in patient care programs and promote the international programs APhA offers.
