Auburn’s new sentinel testing program, being offered by the Harrison School of Pharmacy’s Pharmaceutical Care Clinic, has launched.

The program leverages Auburn’s wealth of faculty and clinical expertise and, in response to feedback, replaces the previous GuideSafe™ sentinel testing platform—which was operated in the fall by an externally contracted vendor. Participation in the new program will be optional but highly encouraged and will be incentivized. The Auburn Family is encouraged to consider how their participation can impact the broader campus health, knowing that a larger pool of participants will increase the university’s ability to identify and respond to emerging virus transmission trends. A random selection of Auburn employees and students have already started receiving an email to participate in the program, which is designed to protect the Auburn Family from virus spread amid the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic.
