The 2016-17 term has been an extremely exciting and productive period for our National Student Officers. We want to take this moment to acknowledge each of them and some of their numerous accomplishments. IPhO increased its national student leadership from three to six members this past year to support the continuing growth of our organization. During their tenure, the number of IPhO Student Chapters grew to 48! This growth would not have been possible without the tremendous commitment and quality of these student pharmacist leaders.

In addition, we are pleased to congratulate each of them on their acceptance to an industry fellowship program.
