BAPA Awards

Who inspires you? A neighborhood pharmacist who donated medication to a family working through hard times?

A pharmacy school instructor who helped you master that topic you initially thought was impossible to comprehend?

An exemplary member of your region?

BAPA provides members with an excellent way to thank fellow PhA members—who are your colleagues, friends, mentors—who made a difference in your career. Each year at the Annual Meeting and Convention, PhA recognizes member-nominated award recipients for their recent contributions (within the last 2-3 years) and achievements, separate from their job description. Award nominations are due by June 15th each year. Any submissions received after June 15th will be considered the following year.

Few things are more gratifying than peer-recognition. Who will you nominate today?
