National Pharmaceutical Association Academic Partnership
Founded in 1947, The National Pharmaceutical Association (NPhA) is a nationwide, professional organization of pharmacists dedicated to representing the views and ideas of minority pharmacists on critical issues affecting health care and pharmacy, as well as advancing the standards of pharmaceutical care among all practitioners. The NPhA strives to increase the number of minority pharmacists who are active in organized pharmacy and to be a strong voice on issues affecting minority pharmacists and the communities in which they serve.
The National Pharmaceutical Association offers minority pharmacists the opportunity to network with pharmacists and students who are devoted to serving underserved communities. It is their vision to support a system of education and professional training which assure the public the availability of competent personnel in the practice of pharmacy, to provide continuing pharmaceutical education for its members and to encourage interest in the practice of pharmacy as a career, especially among minority students.
As a way of saying "thank you" to the many National Pharmaceutical Association members who reside in our community, Marist College is offering special tuition pricing for all members and their immediate adult family members.
