Celebrating 125 Years

In 1893, pharmacy leaders in Texas came together to discuss the future of pharmacy leadership and founded the College of Pharmacy at The University of Texas at Austin.  Over the past 125 years, the College has greatly impacted healthcare in the State and beyond.  This August, we are looking to bring together 125 of the most talented emerging leaders in pharmacy to forge the next era of healthcare.  We invite you to join us at this year’s PPS as we celebrate 125 of the College of Pharmacy.  Join us for the College of Pharmacy Alumni Awards event on the evening of Saturday, September 29 at the DoubleTree.  Details to come.
