The IACP Foundation’s Fund-the-Future program raises monies to bring pharmacy students to two of the most important events in pharmacy compounding – Compounders on Capitol Hill (CCH) and the ACA IACP ACVP Educational Conference.




IACP Foundation's Fund-the-Future program began a few years ago with one student attending Compounders on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. The next year there were three students. In 2013, six students, and eight in 2014. Today, the program has been expanded to both Compounders on Capitol Hill and to the Educational Conference events!
