About the Symposium:
Iowa pharmacy is known for its outstanding leaders and innovative thinkers. Nationwide, pharmacists and pharmacy students are fully aware that Iowa sets the bar for pharmacy education, collaboration, and innovation. The truth is that leadership is very much a part of Iowa pharmacy's history. 

Dating back to the early days of pharmacy education, the UI College of Pharmacy cultivated pioneers. One of those remarkable leaders was Zada Mary Cooper (1875–1961), who graduated from the University of Iowa College of Pharmacy in 1897, and continued as a faculty member until retiring in 1942. She was one of the founders of the Women’s Section of APhA, founder of Kappa Epsilon Fraternity and the Rho Chi Society, and secretary of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy from 1922 to 1942. She was an advocate of women in pharmacy, and later became known as the “grand and glorious lady of pharmacy.”

Keynote Speakers:
Sara White, MS, FASHP, former Stanford Hospital and Clinics’ Director of Pharmacy and Clinical Professor, UCSF School of Pharmacy, past ASHP president, current publisher and author
