Participate in the MPF Adopt-a-Student Program

The Michigan Pharmacy Foundation (MPF) Adopt-a-Student program will be held at the MPA Annual Convention & Exposition Feb. 25-27, 2011, at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center. The Adopt-a-Student program provides SMPA members the opportunity to network with Michigan's pharmacy leaders during the Annual Convention and at the annual banquet Saturday evening from 7-9:30 p.m.

MPA was provided feedback from student pharmacists regarding the program. Major changes in the process have been put in place to make the process much easier. All student pharmacists wishing to be adopted must follow the process outlined below.
