Embassy Suites, Des Moines • Iowa State Capitol
IPA’s annual Legislative Day is the cornerstone of the association’s legislative and public policy efforts. Each year pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and student pharmacists engage in face-to-face grassroots advocacy with Iowa legislators; attracting nearly 200 members of our profession to the Iowa State Capitol. Join your colleagues as we inject some pharmacy-filled energy into the Capitol and advance our priorities into this year’s legislative session!
Never done anything like this before? Join us anyway. The morning session of Legislative Day will prepare you to meet with your legislator. In addition, we will pair students and first time attendees with mentors to meet with legislators in small groups (just let us know ahead of time).
In addition to grassroots efforts, student pharmacists from Drake and the University of Iowa will hold health screenings in the Capitol for legislators and staff. This important outreach showcase the value of pharmacy to our elected officials.
Don't Forget Your White Coat!
Immediately following meetings with legislators, all attendees will gather in the Capitol Rotunda for the “Paint it White” group photo. Also, it’s awesome to see all so many pharmacists, easily identified by their white coats, spread throughout the Capitol.
