What Past Attendees Have Said

I thought it was a great overall experience. The students were very helpful and knowledgeable and there is a lot that I learned.

Very interactive, which was great! All the students were good at talking about their studies as well.

I'm really glad I had the opportunity to attend the UIC High School Pharmacy Camp. I thought it was very informative.
