The University of Maryland School of Pharmacy is a strong community and is banding together during the COVID-19 pandemic to help each other in a variety of ways.

Students load medical supplies into back of car for delivery to local health care workers.We have heard from many faculty, staff, students, and alumni about how they are helping out and knew we needed to share those positive stories with our broader community.
