Arizona Pharmacy Association - Student Pharmacist Academy

The Arizona Pharmacy Association (AzPA) was founded on April 20, 2004. Multiple state organizations merged together to form AzPA, uniting different entities from various niches of pharmacy under one name.

On April 12, 2010, the AzPA Board of Directors approved the formation of the Student Pharmacist Academy (SPA), joining AzPA’s original five academies which include the Health-Systems Academy, Community Practice Academy, Geriatric Care Academy, Managed Care Academy, and Technician Academy.
