IPSF and PUBLIC HEALTH CAMPAIGNS
IPSF is the leading international advocacy organization for pharmacy students, promoting improved public health through the provision of information, education, networking and a range of publications and professional initiatives. Supporting our members in the preparation and implementation of campaigns is one way in which IPSF fulfills this objective. As pharmacy students and pharmacists, we are in the position to inform the public and change misconceptions surrounding our profession and any health related topics.
