Each year, PPAG honors members who have provided exemplary service to the association. The Presidential Citation and Spirit of PPAG Awards were given Friday, April 29, 2016 during the 25th Annual Meeting.

The Presidential Citiation is given to a committee or subcommittee chair who has exhibited exceptional service each year. President Jared Cash awarded 3 Presidential Citiations this year:
Bob John, PharmD for his service to PPAG as Chair of the Education Committee (and Chair of the 25th Annual Conference).
Tara Higgins, PharmD who served as Chair of the Membership Committee and Hematology/Oncology Special Interest Group simultaneously, and has become the co-chair of the Fall Meeting in Tucson, Arizona.
Kristen Nichols, PharmD for her service to PPAG as Chair of the student educational programming at the 25th Annual Conference.
The Spirit of PPAG Award is given to an "unsung hero" of the association each year. The Spirit Award is given to a member who is not a committee chair, but serves behind the scenes "doing the work." This year, President Jared Cash awarded the Spirit of PPAG Award to:
Mary Riedy, PharmD for her work supporting our Student Groups and developing a student council at PPAG.
