Why Join LIPA


The Louisiana Independent Pharmacies Association (LIPA) is a member-based, 502(c)6 non-profit organization that has worked to empower and advance Louisiana's independent pharmacy community for over 20 years. 

Pharmacists are our communities' most accessible healthcare providers, and LIPA is focused on helping our members improve the overall quality of health care in their communities to realize the best possible outcomes.
