Tennessee Pharmacists Association

Building Tennessee's Pharmacy Future Starts with You!November 27, 2018

For nearly 140 years, the Tennessee Pharmacists Association (TPA) has served our great Volunteer State as the single, unified voice advancing, protecting, and promoting the pharmacy profession, and today marks an exciting new chapter in our association’s storied history!

The TPA Board of Directors is excited to announce the Building Tennessee’s Pharmacy Future campaign. This campaign offers you the opportunity to play an essential role in the history and future of Tennessee pharmacy. With your help and support, the Tennessee Pharmacists Research and Education Foundation (TPREF), a 501(c)(3) subsidiary of the TPA, will be able to accomplish something that has never been done in our association’s existence: to establish a permanent home for pharmacy practice in Tennessee.

Building Tennessee’s Pharmacy Future is more than just a fundraising effort. This campaign represents the strength and resolve of pharmacists, pharmacy professionals, and our association. TPREF is seeking your help to transform the potential of our association into reality through the purchase and renovation of the Center for Tennessee Pharmacy. The Center for Tennessee Pharmacy, located at 1732 Lebanon Pike Circle in Nashville, Tennessee, will house the TPA offices and will serve as a hub of educational, organizational, and community activity for TPA members and the general public.

Goals of the Building Tennessee’s Pharmacy Future campaign:

  • To raise $500,000 to establish a permanent home for pharmacy in Tennessee.
  • To support renovations to TPA’s new building that will ensure it meets the needs of our members, leaders, and staff for generations of pharmacy professionals to come.
  • To invest in technology improvements that will allow TPA and TPREF to provide more advanced education and training opportunities for more members and guests.
