The alumni association was established in 1980 to serve pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences alumni of the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy. We are a service organization of the School, and as of April 12, 2014, the Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences Alumni Association no longer requires membership dues. All alumni of the School are members of the PAA.

The PAA Board remains dedicated to recognizing life members on the Life Member Wall in the Mary Lockwood Curry Student Commons in Kerr Hall. We will continue to solicit donations for inclusion on the wall. If you are a life member or desire to be recognized, there will be opportunities for you to be included on the wall.

We also encourage you to continue your support by making an annual, tax-deductible gift to the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy.
