2017 Bill Burke Student Pharmacist Leadership Conference Participants Announced
Congratulations to the participants of the 2017 Bill Burke Student Leadership Conference!
University of Iowa
The conference is organized through the Iowa Pharmacy Association (IPA), Drake University College of Pharmacy and 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 550 student pharmacists have graduated from the program.
In 2008 the conference was named 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, based in Davenport, Iowa, which he founded.
