“As student pharmacists and soon-to-be practicing pharmacists, it is our responsibility to contribute to the future of our profession.  We need to keep up-to-date on issues and speak up because our leadership will help determine the future of pharmacy and health care.  Through grassroots advocacy, we can effectively inform legislators when certain issues affect our profession, as well as our patients and their constituents.”
