"SNPhA is dedicated to the pharmacy profession and serving the underserved."

SNPhA is the student affiliate of the National Pharmaceutical Association which is dedicated to representing the views and ideas of minority pharmacists on critical issues affecting health care and pharmacy; as well as advancing the standards of pharmaceutical care among all practitioners.

The Student National Pharmaceutical Association (SNPhA) was founded in 1972 on the campus of Florida A & M University, when Sharon Roquemore (now Sharon Lovick Edwards) and John J. Scrivens organized that first meeting. In addition to the students from Florida A & M University, students from Howard University, Texas Southern University, Toledo University, Xavier University and other schools were in attendance. The meeting participants numbered about one hundred.

Our many years of success are in part due to the outstanding leadership the association has had over the years. Our own Dr. Johnnie L Early, Dean of The University Toledo College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences was one of the founding fathers of SNPhA and remains one of its biggest supporters and pioneers today. Dr. Early has enjoyed a lot of success throughout his tenure in the student organization and enjoys a lot of recognition today as a member of SNPhA.
