Parker’s House of Pancakes, lovingly known as PHOP by Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences students and faculty, will be returning next Wednesday, March 6. The annual fundraising event is named after Dr. Dennis Parker, Pharmacy Practice associate clinical professor and faculty advisor to the WSU chapter of the Student National Pharmacists Association (SNPhA).

“SNPhA is proud to keep this tradition alive,” said Chapter President Daniyal Nasir. “This year’s PHOP is going to be bigger and better. In addition to taking orders on the day of the event, we will be taking pre-orders as well. We invite everyone at the college to join us for PHOP next Wednesday and support our organization while enjoying Dr. Parker’s delicious pancakes!”

QR codes are posted around the Applebaum Building and class social media accounts so that people can order in advance. In addition to a delectable assortment of pancakes, PHOP will also be serving bacon, hashbrowns, halal sausage, coffee and other beverages from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the lower-level Student Commons.

Proceeds from the PHOP fundraiser will go to support the Wayne State University SNPhA chapter and its various projects and initiatives. The group’s purpose is to plan, organize, coordinate and execute programs geared toward the improvement of the health, educational and social environment of minority communities.

“I joined SNPhA because I am a Detroit native and a minority; SNPhA’s mission to educate and give back to this specific community is something I am passionate about,” said Janiya Moss, SNPhA president-elect. “Other students should join to learn more about the culture that our school is surrounded by and as an opportunity to broaden their professional skills.”
