A warm welcome to the Polish American Pharmacists Association (PAPA) website.
The PAPA is a highly respected, active, and visible pharmacy organization. We have had a presence in Illinois Pharmacy since 1936.
We promote an association of friendship and shared professional interests. Small organizations such as ours are the strength of pharmacy in Illinois. We encourage you to become active in our organization so that both the PAPA and you may grow in knowledge and stature. We continue to broaden our horizons, and are slowly expanding to serve more than just the Illinois community.
