GRASP Module VIII - Practice Legislative Visits

At the completion of this module, the participant will be able to:


1. Meet one-on-one with their elected officials.

Exercise: Practice Legislative Visit (Required)

In order to complete the GRASP program, each student is required to participate in a one-on-one practice legislative visit. Your practice visit may only be scheduled after you have completed all the other modules and their related requirements and exercises. 


A practice legislative visit may be conducted through an appointment with either PPA's CEO or a faculty member from your school who is an approved GRASP evaluator or other PPA GRASP evaluator.


Practice visits with PPA's CEO may be held by appointment during the Annual or Mid-Year Conferences or through other arrangements made with PPA. Please email Pat Epple at pepple@papharmacists.com to schedule your practice visit.


Practice visits with GRASP evaluators may be held on your school's campus by an approved GRASP evaluator. Please email the GRASP evaluator at your school to schedule your practice visit. A list of GRASP evaluators, his or her school and email address is available below.
