“IACP has provided me with an incredible opportunity to meet the best and brightest pharmacists and technicians in our compounding profession.  Through IACP I have become an active participant in Washington, D.C., as well as in local, state and national initiatives to help ensure that practitioners and the patients they serve continue to have access to the personalized medication solutions they deserve.” – IACP Past President, John Herr, RPh, FIACP, Town & Country Compounding & Consultation.

 

 

 

                                             

 

APhA 2014 Student Breakfast Focus Group

Last month IACP’s Executive Vice President/CEO David G Miller, RPh and IACP Membership Coordinator Melissa Lampp had the pleasure to sit down with 14 of our student members to find out what IACP can do for you. In doing so we discovered there are a few things that we can provide for you in the next few months as well all the free items that USP has available for you today.  We look forward to continuing to grow our student membership, but truly want to focus on working for you. If there is something that you feel would be helpful or ideas that you think IACP should be doing, please contact us at iacpinfo@iacprx.org.
