One Profession. One Voice.

Corporate Sponsors

The Iowa Pharmacy Association values it strategic partnerships with stakeholders across the profession of pharmacy. Please look to these corporate sponsors as leaders in the profession to assist you and your pharmacy in providing the utmost care to the patients you serve.  

As the oldest and largest health care services company in the nation, McKesson plays an integral role in health care and has a unique vision for its future. We serve more than 50% of American hospitals, 20% of physicians and 100% of health plans, and as the largest pharmaceutical distributor in North America, we deliver one-third of all medications used there every day.

Our software, distribution and business services play an essential role in addressing the challenges health care organizations face today — and shaping how they’ll overcome them tomorrow. We connect people and organizations, support the quest for higher quality and improved clinical outcomes, and help health care businesses run better. And that supports better patient health.
