Message from President Lisa D. Ashworth, BS Pharm, RPh, FACA

It's a new year, a fresh start, a new beginning - Welcome to 2017! I hope you had a wonderful time during the holidays and are now getting back in the swing of things for the new year.  The IACP Foundation is gearing up for another successful Rx Mixer event with a 50s theme and preparing for our students attending the 2017 ACA / IACP / ACVP Educational Conference, from February 21-25, 2017, in Coronado, CA.
We are so pleased to see another strong group of students that applied for our Student Travel Grant - 2017 Educational Conference and four outstanding students were awarded this grant.  The IACP Foundation loves to encourage and empower pharmacy students.  By having them attend events like Compounders on Capitol Hill and the Educational Conference, we get an opportunity to help shape their future as leaders in pharmacy.  They get an opportunity to network with pharmacy compounding entrepreneurs and Corporate Sponsors and see how pharmacy organizations work by attending Board of Directors meetings.  I've said it before and I'll say it again - students are our future and we must get them involved in pharmacy organizations.
Don't forget to Save the Date for our 13th Annual Rx Mixer - Rx Around the Clock on
Sunday, June 11, 2017  during Compounders on Capitol Hill (CCH) to be held in Washington, D.C., June 10 - 13, 2017.
Read below about how with your contributions we were able to fund four students to attend the Educational Conference 2017! Did you know that just by shopping like you normally do on Amazon you can help support us? Check out AmazonSmile below. Your shopping can help contribute to IACP Foundation!
Thanks for getting involved, and advancing the IACP Foundation. We could not do it without you!
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and prosperous New Year!
See you at the Educational Conference in 2017!
Again. Thank you,
Lisa D. Ashworth, BS Pharm, RPh

13th Annual Rx Mixer -  Rx Around the Clock  
Plans to Raise More than $200,000!

IACP Foundation's 13 th Annual Rx Mixer - Rx Around the Clock benefiting the IACP Foundation is being held Sunday, June 11, 2017 from 7:00 pm - Midnight at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park.  Early Bird Price is $150 per person until March 7, 2017 (one event ticket and three drink tickets).  The Regular Price is $175 and Late Registration is $200 after May 24, 2017. This is a separate ticketed event.
Event Co-Chairs, Erin Michael, MBA, CPhT and Jennifer Petska, CPhT, with their Rx Mixer Committee, plan to raise more than $200,000 through sponsorships and the auction to benefit the IACP Foundation!
Ah, the 50's, a simpler time when drive-ins, soda fountains and poodle skirts were all the rage. The IACP Foundation's Rx Mixer: Rx Around the Clock guests will be treated to a fun evening of classic food, cold drinks, fellowship, casino games and a sock hop to dance the night away . Try your hand at the Live Auction, Big Board, Silent Auction and the Reverse Draw! All for a really good cause as we support the IACP Foundation's research and education initiatives. As we gather again with our colleagues and friends, we want to emphasize that Rx Mixer is much more than a fun party. It's a Party with a Purpose!
Since the first Rx Mixer was held in 2005, supporters of the pharmacy compounding profession generously have contributed more than $1.8 million to IACP's educational and research mission.
Don't be square and miss this event! It's a Party with a Purpose!  . We'll see you in June!
