Student National Pharmaceutical Association
Student National Pharmaceutical Association (SNPhA) is an educational service association of pharmacy students who are concerned about pharmacy and healthcare related issues, and the poor minority representation in pharmacy, and other health-related professions. The purpose of SNPhA is to plan, organize, coordinate, and execute programs geared toward the improvement for the health, educational, and social environment of the community.
SNPhA creates programs to improve the health, educational, and social environment of minorities. SNPhA members develop leadership skills, participate in national health care issues, promote greater exposure of minority health professionals, especially pharmacists, and help provide minority communities with better health care information. At the annual national convention, members attend education and career workshops, develop ties with other students, and help set national SNPhA policy.
