2020 Annual Convention

NMPhA wants to recognize the tremendous impact our student pharmacists had during the 2020 Legislative Session.

The student pharmacists of APhA-ASP and SSHP were instrumental in the passing of HB 42 through their collaboration and grass roots outreach efforts.  They were able to establish and organize call banks so state representatives and senators could hear from student pharmacists from their own communities vocalizing their support. 

These students were able to effectively communicate the benefits of the bill to the legislators, leading to unanimous approval in multiple committees. Additionally, on occasions when the scheduling of HB 42 for committee discussion was tenuous, student pharmacists contacted several committee members and were influential in ensuring the bill was heard.

We want to thank the following students for their participation and support during the 2020 Legislature!
