About

We are a group of practicing pharmacists throughout the U.S. who have organized a mutual aid movement entitled #PharmGradWishlist that aims to support emerging racially and ethnically minoritized pharmacist trainees. Racially and ethnically minoritized individuals includes, but is not limited to, those who are underrepresented in the Pharmacy profession due to systemic racism. Underrepresentation can perpetuate health disparities. 

 

This pharmacist campaign was inspired by the successful movement of our physician colleagues at MedGradWishlist (@MedGradWishlist or MedGradWishlist.org).

 "I am heartfully thankful for your generosity.”
