Advocacy Committee 

Building on advocacy tools from previous committee work, the Advocacy Committee will consider how to empower us as citizens--within our institutions, communities, and governments. Can we take our needs to actions by 1) preparing to answer ‘why now?’ 2) offering a plan, and 3) characterizing benefits or ‘what is in it for them’? This skill set is necessary for student pharmacists, but also for our faculty and professional staff members. Too often Legislative Day has become the equivalent of ‘dropping off the kids at the mall’ without the sufficient support and mentoring of faculty and practitioners. The 2015-16 Advocacy Committee will:

  1. Identify and recognize citizen exemplars among faculty, practicing pharmacists, and students.
  2. Identify the key characteristics and development opportunities to expand and empower the pool of pharmacy education advocates.
