American Society of Consultant Pharmacists

The UA American Society of Consultant Pharmacists Student Chapter was founded on October 8, 2013, with the focus being geriatrics and long-term care. This organization desires to make a difference in the lives of the geriatric population of our local community. ASCP will expand the presence of the University of Arizona on the national level by attending the national conferences. The vision of the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists is to deliver quality medication services to the geriatric population to improve their health outcomes and overall quality of life.
