Kappa Epsilon believes that it is important to share our professional knowledge with the community and help raise awareness for breast cancer. Kappa Epsilon has an on-going national professional project called Pharmacy Career Opportunity Recruitment Project (Pharm-CORP). Pharm-CORP was developed with the intent of promoting the profession of pharmacy to high school students who are in the process of exploring which career path to follow. KE has already visited many schools in the area to promote our profession, answer questions, and provide literature to help students make more informed career decisions. Kappa Epsilon also has breast cancer awareness as a national professional project. For the 2011 - 2013 biennium, each chapter has been given the challenge to raise a total of $500 to be donated to Young Survival Coalition (YSC).
