Congratulations to Selected 2021 Bill Burke Participants
Congratulations to the 2021 participants of the Bill Burke Student Pharmacist Leadership Conference.
The Iowa Pharmacy Association (IPA) would like to congratulate the 2021 participants of the 25th Annual Bill Burke Student Pharmacist Leadership Conference. These 30 student pharmacists from Drake University and the University of Iowa will participate in the conference in a hybrid format this weekend, April 9-10.
University of Iowa
The conference is organized by IPA, Drake University College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences, and the University of Iowa College of Pharmacy. The conference began in 1995 to develop pharmacy student leaders through discussion and activities on leadership skills, professional values, and pharmacy practice issues. Over 640 student pharmacists have graduated from the program.
In 2008, the conference was renamed in honor of Bill Burke to recognize the generous support of the conference provided by his daughters Lisa Ploehn and Ann Burke, co-owners of Main at Locust Pharmacy Clinic and Medical Supplies in Davenport, Iowa, which he founded.
