2023 recipient Linda Grimm
Starting in 2020, the Iowa Pharmacy Association recognizes a member who has made a unique and significant contribution to IPA’s advocacy efforts with the Legislative Champion Award. The award is presented at IPA’s Pharmacist Day on the Hill (previously Legislative Day).
The goal of IPA's Champion Advocate program is to have pharmacists establish trust and familiarity with their legislators and keep them aware of the key issues facing pharmacy. As they work to educate their representatives and senators, it helps build their understanding of IPA’s concerns regarding patient care and the role of the pharmacist.
