Mission:  SNPhA is an educational and community service association of pharmacy students who are concerned about critical issues affecting healthcare and pharmacy practice in diverse and underserved communities.

Description: Our main goal is to improve the health outcomes of the underserved populations in our community. We do so by reaching out into our community with health fairs, educational seminars, and fundraising events. The most important way we can improve patient care in our community is learn what the needs of our community are and what we can do to make a change. We take great pride in providing leadership opportunities for pharmacy and pre-pharmacy students.
