One of AAPP’s primary strategies is to partner with others in the health professions through coalitions. This collective work allows us to advocate for legislation and regulation that is favorable toward the profession and the patients we serve but with a much bigger, more powerful voice.

  1. Builds AAPP’s profile within the pharmacy and mental health advocacy community.
  2. Allows AAPP to be a participant in policy discussions.
  3. Enhances and showcases AAPP's patient advocacy efforts.
