CELEBRATING Professional Achievements in Iowa Pharmacy!

- Take an active role in setting policy that will steer association action now
- Hear and share innovative ideas to implement at your practice and advance the profession
- Recharge by connecting with like-minded colleagues to build you network and opportunities for collaboration
