  • It’s National Suicide Prevention Week: This year's theme is "The Power of Connection." A major risk for suicide is social isolation, and there is scientific evidence that we can reduce that risk by making sure we connect with one another. We can all play a role through the power of connection by having real conversations about mental health with people in everyday moments – whether it’s with those closest to us, or the coffee barista, faculty mentors, or the grocery store clerk. We don’t always know who is struggling, but we do know that one conversation could save a life.

  • California Pharmacists Association

    Make your voice heard! AB 315 (Wood & Dahle) which would require that Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs) be regulated by the California Department of Managed Health Care will be voted on tomorrow Tuesday, August 28, 2018.

    We believe this is a critical step in bringing to light how PBMs contribute to the rising costs in healthcare.

    We are urging CPhA members and pharmacists to contact their State Senator to vote YES on AB 315. Your assistance is crucial in ensuring the bill gets sent to the Governor's desk.

    As you can imagine, the PBMs are lobbying hard to defeat this important piece of legislation so we need your advocacy support!https://p2a.co/0rdL5CK

  • Golnoush Golshan, MA, Doctor of Pharmacy Candidate, Class of 2018 on WOMEN'S MONTH: Women’s month is a time to honor the contributions of extraordinary women in our lives and throughout history. It was through the sacrifices and courageousness of our mothers and the generations before them that we have been able to break down barriers and achieve the impossible. This month is a reminder that as females we must continue moving forward with the impact we have made in our respective fields and to help empower other women along the path to success.
  • Lucinda Chan, PharmD, Director of Experiential Education, on WOMEN'S MONTH: As a young pharmacist starting her career, I was extremely fortunate to have strong female pharmacy mentors. I listened to their stories of being the first female pharmacy student in their class and dealing with the choice of career or family. The women before me have paved a road of incredible strength and courage. They have encouraged me to work fearlessly and to reach for goals in areas that have not been developed. I was given the courage to push forward and persist when the odds were difficult. When I was feeling tired and weak, reaching out to my mentors for words of encouragement gave me the momentum to create a legacy for women pharmacist that will follow me. I am excited to be a mentor now and encourage the new generation of women that will continue this road of accomplishments.
