UMKC Hosts Regional APhA-ASP Meeting

More than 300 pharmacy students from around the region attend annual conference in Kansas City

UMKC APhA-ASP chapter honored for diabetes education and prevention efforts in 2014-2015

Kansas City hosted more than 300 student pharmacists Oct. 30 to Nov. 1 during a regional meeting of the American Pharmacists Association-Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP).


Pharmacists Are a Core Part of the Solution


More than two-thirds of Missouri is designated as “medically underserved.”

But pharmacists could drastically improve that situation. It’s exactly why the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Pharmacy is urging residents to support federal legislation that allows pharmacists to put the full weight of their academic training and expertise to use in Missouri.

The Pharmacy and Medically Underserved Areas Enhancement Act would allow underserved Medicare patients to better utilize pharmacists for services including medication management, chronic disease management and preventative screenings.
