The MUSC College of Pharmacy celebrates Week One of its American Pharmacists Month “We are MUSC Pharmacy” campaign with a salute to advocacy.

Whether it’s lobbying for reimbursement policy on the steps of the statehouse, educating patients during a pandemic, or encouraging the disenfranchised to make their voices heard, MUSC pharmacists work for change.
