ACA 75th Anniversary Print – Order Yours Today!

ACA commissioned artist Larry Wamble to design a 75th Anniversary Commemorative Print.

Lauderdale, Florida. The print is now available for sale. This handsome memento of a milestone event in the history of the College would be the perfect addition to your collection of pharmacy memorabilia.

Deadlines for the scholarships are December 15 and June 15.
