FPM Volunteer Award

The FPM Volunteer Award is given to an individual in recognition of consistent and/or outstanding efforts and contributions that have helped FPM to achieve excellence in our mission to advance the science and practice of pharmaceutical medicine.

Nominating someone is a wonderful opportunity to give recognition to an individual whose contribution to FPM has gone above and beyond, or has had a significant impact on our work as a charitable and professional membership body.

How are the winners chosen?
