The case studies included here help others appreciate the breadth of advocacy activity that pharmacy faculty engage in on a regular basis. The impact of this engagement purposefully and sometimes unexpectedly influences the way communities, professionals and policy-makers think about a particular issue. The important contribution of these case studies is to strengthen the value of being an engaged citizen and contributing to the public dialogue based on your experience. You are encouraged to contribute your own case study of your advocacy. Guidelines for case study format are available at http://www.aacp.org/advocacy/HowDoesAACPAdvocate/FramingaCaseStudy/Pages/default.aspx and your finished case study can be submitted to Will Lang at firstname.lastname@example.org.
