The Office of Interprofessional Education (IPE) is pleased to announce the names of the first two students to complete all requirements of the IPE Leadership Recognition Program: Morgan Dailey and Lina Poindexter.
The IPE launched its IPE Leadership Recognition Program in 2019. The program gives students in the College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences and in the Campbell University School of Osteopathic Medicine the opportunity to distinguish themselves as leaders in interprofessional education. To earn official recognition, students must complete a series of requirements, including developing IPE activities, serving in IPE leadership roles and completing service hours related to interprofessional collaboration. Since its launch, more than 30 students have begun the process for official recognition, which affords students official transcript designation, a letter from the deans of CPHS and CUSOM as well as the Assistant Dean of IPE and an award from the IPE Office.
Morgan Dailey earned a Master of Physician Assistant Practice degree as well as a Master of Public Health Degree on July 17. Morgan has long been a proponent of IPE. Among many accomplishments in interprofessional education, she developed the Rural Health Riskscape activity, which is now held annually at each IPE Activity Day due to its popularity and long-term success. Additionally, she organized the 2018 Give Kids a Smile event which brought together students from multiple programs to collaborate to care for the oral health of rural children. Morgan also famously created, wrote, directed, and filmed the “IPE is an Open Door” video which brought together students from multiple programs to demonstrate the endless possibilities of interprofessional collaboration.
Lina Poindexter, a recent graduate of the Doctor of Pharmacy program, also has been a proponent of IPE from the time she began her journey at Campbell. She has served on the IPE student panel, SWIPE (Student Leadership with IPE), since its very beginning in 2017. Through that post, Lina was integral in the development of the IPE Leadership Recognition Program itself. Lina has developed and led multiple sessions at both the Combine and IPE Activity Day events and has done much to educate students and faculty members alike about interprofessional collaboration. Her dedication to patient care and interprofessional collaboration shone brightly when she participated in a medical mission trip to Armenia.
The IPE Office congratulates Lina and Morgan on successfully completing the IPE Leadership Recognition Program,and thanks them both for their numerous contributions to interprofessional education at Campbell University.
