“This spring I was blessed with the opportunity of receiving the ACA Presidential Scholarship at the ACVP Veterinary Pharmacy Conference in Memphis, TN. This scholarship gave me the opportunity to network with pharmacists and other student pharmacists from across the country who also share a passion for animals and independent pharmacy.  The conference truly opened my eyes to a branch of pharmacy that I could pursue following graduation and helped me to form a connection with some of the best pharmacists in their field.  I definitely plan to attend another conference in the future!”
