Joseph L. Fink III Founders Award
The American Society for Pharmacy Law (ASPL) is accepting nominations for the Joseph L. Fink, III, Founders Award. The Founders Award was established in 2004 to recognize sustained and outstanding service and contributions to the professions of pharmacy and law. The award is named for Joseph L. Fink, III, who founded ASPL in 1974 and served as the Society’s first president.
Any ASPL member may nominate a person for the Award. The nominee need not be a current ASPL member. The Award may be awarded annually, but if no person nominated meets the criteria, the award will not be given.
The award consists of a perpetual plaque kept in the ASPL office with the names of each of the past recipients, as well as an individual award for the recipient.
The award will be presented at the ASPL Annual Meeting held in conjunction with the ASPL Developments in Pharmacy Law Seminar which is held in the fall of each year.
