Calling All Pharmacy Students
"Why IPA? I chose IPA because I wanted to get involved in an organization that represents all pharmacists across the state of Indiana. As the pharmacy profession continues to progress, it is important that I do my part in promoting the role of pharmacists in health care as we work toward enhancing the care provided to Hoosiers. IPA has provided me with various opportunities to witness the amazing things pharmacists are doing across our state as well as create a network of pharmacists and friends that continue to inspire me as I prepare for my future as a pharmacist."
- Pat Nelson, P4 Pharmacy Student at Purdue University
