The Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association (PPA) recently presented the Mylan School of Pharmacy with its Government Relations Award at the PPA’s annual conference in Gettysburg, Pa.
This Government Relations Award recognizes the school that has gone above and beyond in the area of advocacy work. Points were awarded for participation in legislative day, meetings with legislators, PharmPAC (Pharmacy Political Action Committee) awareness and other innovative advocacy efforts.
The School of Pharmacy participated in 33 appointments on legislative day to advocate for advancing pharmacy practice, had five students at the PPA’s Annual Government Relations in Advocacy Student Program and sent Christmas cards to legislators. In addition to holding a pharmacy day at the courthouse, the school’s entire second-year pharmacy class took a legislative trip to Washington, D.C.
Founded in 1878, the Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association is a professional membership organization of more than 2,000 pharmacists and pharmacy students across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, representing almost all facets of pharmacy practice. As the leading voice of pharmacy in Pennsylvania, it promotes the profession through advocacy, education and communication to enhance patient care and public health.
