Student National Pharmaceutical Association (SNPhA)


SNPhA is an educational service association of pharmacy students who are concerned about pharmacy, healthcare-related issues, and inadequate minority representation in pharmacy. The purpose of SNPhA is to plan, organize, coordinate, and execute programs geared toward the improvement of the health, educational, and social environment of the community. Our primary health initiatives include the chronic disease state awareness of HIV/AIDs, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, immunizations, stroke, and mental health. We represent students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels at the University of Pittsburgh.
