IPA’s annual Legislative Day is the cornerstone of the association’s legislative and public policy efforts. Each year, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and student pharmacists engage in face-to-face grassroots advocacy with Iowa legislators; attracting nearly 200 members of our profession to the Iowa State Capitol. Join your colleagues as we inject some pharmacy-filled energy into the Capitol and advance our priorities into this year’s legislative session!

Prepare yourself by reading IPA's 2019 legislative and regulatory priorities.

Capitol Screenings 

In addition to grassroots efforts, student pharmacists from Drake and the University of Iowa will hold health screenings in the Capitol for legislators and staff. This important outreach showcase the value of pharmacy to our elected officials.

What to expect: 

Don't Forget Your White Coat!

Immediately following meetings with legislators, all attendees will gather in the Capitol Rotunda for the “Paint it White” group photo. Also, it’s awesome to see all so many pharmacists, easily identified by their white coats, spread throughout the Capitol.
