NZAPS representative attends IPSF
Zara Brouwers, the NZAPS-O Liaison representative, travelled to Hat Yai in southern Thailand in August to attend the 57th IPSF World Congress. IPSF is the International Pharmaceutical Students Federation and it’s the oldest student organisation in the world. Its initiatives empower students through exchange programmes, conferences, awareness campaigns, advocacy and friendship. The federation works towards collective perspectives and collaborates with UNESCO, FIP and WHO to ensure the voice of pharmacy students is not only heard but listened to and respected. The people behind the organisation have a love for IPSF and its members; they volunteer their time to something greater than themselves.
The congress took place over ten days with pharmacy students and pharmacists from over 50 countries taking part in the exciting atmosphere that fosters the ‘IPSF spirit’. The congress’s main focus is on networking, educational seminars, pharmaceutical research presentations and inspiring advocacy for pharmacy students and pharmacists globally. Most of all congress is about sharing stories with people of different cultures and having a great deal of fun. Zara returned home with a passion for all that IPSF had to offer. “It was a wonderful adventure and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute.” She hopes this has introduced NZ students to what will be a growing and rewarding fellowship with IPSF and bring greater participation in IPSF events and campaigns.
