Pacific's APhA-ASP chapter won the Region 8 Legislative Award for their innovative and unique approach in raising legislative awareness and promoting the profession of pharmacy.

Two committees were also recognized for their achievements.

This is the second year in a row that Operation Diabetes has been honored for their efforts in patient care.
