The IPA Foundation celebrated its 30th Leadership Pharmacy Conference this year, a tribute to the Foundation’s commitment to developing pharmacy leaders. Those who have participated in this conference since 1989 have given back to the pharmacy profession by driving practice transformation, becoming community leaders, and mentoring pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and student pharmacists.
For #GivingTuesday, the Foundation is asking you to help us celebrate those who have given back to their profession through their leadership.
With a $30 #GivingTuesday donation, tell us the name of a mentor or leader and how they have impacted you personally or professionally. These stories of impactful leadership will be posted here throughout the day and printed in 2019 first quarter issue of IPA’s Journal. Also share your stories using the #GaveBackbyLeading hashtag.
In addition to recognizing those leaders who have given back, your donation will support the Foundation’s efforts to develop pharmacy leaders, support student pharmacists, and drive pharmacy practice transformation. All donations to the IPA Foundation are 100% tax deductible. 

Leaders Who Gave Back

CoraLynn Trewet 
"Dr. Trewet has been a mentor since I was a student. She taught me to listen to your gut and follow your heart, especially when faced by adversity. I'm grateful to have her in my life. This type of leadership is what makes Iowa special."
Samm Anderegg
Mark Nessen
"I am a pharmacist today because Mark showed me what it REALLY means to be a COMMUNITY pharmacist.  He had such great passion for his community and was a very integral member of not only the healthcare team but the entire community and he always put the patients first."
Cheri Schmit
Bob Stessman
"Bob Stessman at Manning Pharmacy has served as a leader/mentor for me in so many aspects.  Bob continually works to advance the profession of pharmacy and teaches the value of collaboration among healthcare professionals and pharmacists. One of his greatest assets is his ability to see the "big picture" and help me to see what the future looks like in various pharmacy projects."
Jen Morris
Jennifer Moulton
"Jennifer Moulton is a mentor to me personally and professionally. Her impact has reached beyond my work as a pharmacist and educator to a wife and mother. She has taught me to think outside the box to go after things others said could not be done. She always treated me like a peer and made me feel like I was the most important person in the room. Lots of advice over blood, sweat and tears...but the best may be "low expectations" which is important for all of us Type A perfectionist pharmacists."

Raylene Rospond
"Raylene was an inspiration to me as a leader. She helped me to develop my leadership skills by thoughtfully guiding and coaching me through challenging situations, and encouraged me to examine all angles of a situation before I made a decision. She is a professional of high integrity, work ethic, and compassion."
