Pharmacy students help install ramps

Texas Ramp ProjectAs part of their Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPE) course, a group of first-year (P1) students from the School of Pharmacy recently spent part of their Saturday afternoon helping improve wheelchair access for several members of the Amarillo community. Their efforts were part of the Texas Ramp Project, which constructs and installs wheelchair ramps for disabled or elderly people who can’t afford to buy one. Jim Ziolkowski, R.Ph., a long-time School of Pharmacy preceptor, heads the Amarillo chapter of the Texas Ramp Project.

P1s Albert Ngo, Dung Nguyen, Carly Obverdieck, Adam Olson, Dale Park, Jiffy Philip, Danielle Pierce and Tejal Rana helped install a ramp on Oct. 22. Classmate Joseph Vu was part of a group of local community volunteers that helped Ziolkowski install another ramp Nov.5.
