The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) Foundation today announced the recipients of the Women in Pharmacy (WIP) Recognition Campaign, a campaign highlighting women of influence in the pharmacy profession. The women will be honored at a special event on October 14, where their biosketches and photos will be unveiled and displayed within the Women in Pharmacy Exhibit and Conference Room at APhA Headquarters in Washington, DC.
