IPA Foundation Now Accepting Applications for Outcomes Innovative Pharmacy Endowment Grants
The IPA Foundation is now accepting applications for its first Outcomes Innovative Pharmacy Endowment Grants.
The Iowa Pharmacy Association Foundation (IPAF) is now accepting applications for grants from the Outcomes Pharmacy Innovative Pharmacy Endowment. The grant program is seeking to support innovative pharmacy practice initiatives in the state of Iowa.
The endowment was established by the original investors of OutcomesMTM, a medication therapy management (MTM) service provider based in Iowa. In 1999, the Iowa Pharmacy Association provided seed money to support this innovative startup, which became a national leader in MTM services. Following the purchase of OutcomesMTM by Cardinal Health in 2015, the endowment was created as a way for those original investors to give back to the pharmacy profession and keep the innovative spirit and legacy of the company and Iowa pharmacy alive.
With that in mind, IPAF is looking to support the next generation of innovative pharmacy ideas through the endowment. Applicants must be pharmacists that are currently licensed in Iowa or an Iowa based researcher working with innovative pharmacy practice by Iowa pharmacists. Applicants must also be active members of the Iowa Pharmacy Association.
Applications must be submitted by December 1, 2016. Finalists will be required to present to the IPAF Board of Directors in February 2017 and funding notices will be released on April 1, 2017.
