On Tuesday, March 27, representatives from The University of Iowa College of Pharmacy were in attendance at the second annual Hawkeye Caucus Day at the Iowa Capitol. Dean Donald Letendre, faculty, staff, and students were on hand to answer questions posed by legislators, legislative staff, and lobbyists.

“The opportunity to share our passion and expertise with lawmakers is an invaluable experience. We are able to illustrate our statewide presence and impact on the healthcare of all Iowans,” said Letendre.

Hawkeye Caucus Day was an event organized by The University of Iowa Office of Governmental Relations in which representatives from all University of Iowa colleges gathered at the Capitol to tell Iowa lawmakers about the university’s value, showcasing everything from education and health care to research and economic development.
