On February 8th, 2022, EH had a very special family reunion! EH was able to hold its first in person Chapter meeting in almost two years! While taking all of the necessary safety precautions, we were able to greatly enjoy having our in-person Chapter Family reunion! We also held the pinning ceremony for our Xi Class Pledges! It was a great evening being able to reconnect with our EH Family and we are very excited about the future of our Chapter with our awesome Xi Class Pledges!
It has been an autumn and winter of fellowship for Epsilon Eta! We are very pleased to announce that we have been able to resume in person social and philanthropy/community service events. Here is a recap of the awesome events our Chapter has held from September to December!

We would like to thank all our Chapter’s Brothers for their hard work and dedication that made this award possible!

Epsilon Eta would like to congratulate our P4 Brothers who completed their pharmacy school journeys and received their PharmD. On June 6, 2021, these Brothers proudly walked the graduation stage and received their degrees. We are very proud of all of our Brothers who graduated this month and cannot wait to see where their pharmacy journeys take them!
Many of our chapter’s Brothers, both collegiate and alumni have worked and volunteered at COVID-19 clinics throughout the country. In today’s post, we would like to highlight some of our Brothers who are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 vaccination efforts. One of our alumni Brothers, Dr. Nick Britt, has been involved in vaccination efforts in Colorado, and he was recently featured in an article about COVID-19 vaccination in The Coloradoan newspaper. Our Vice Regent, Sabrina Alahmad, our Treasurer Fayola Robillard, and our Sergeant at Arms Bosun Alayoku have all been working at CVS Covid-19 clinics. We would like to thank all of our Brothers who are helping in this battle against the Coronavirus.
