At the University of Iowa (UI) Stead Family Children's Hospital, the Iowa Pharmacy Association's team of mobile pharmacists had the opportunity to be a part of 'the wave.' The team reported "so much emotion to be walking around this hospital knowing what the children and their families go through in these halls."

The #RollinRx riders enjoyed meeting the pharmacy team at the UI Hospitals and Clinics' discharge pharmacy. The UI team includes Sara Cabernet, PharmD (‘11 Creighton graduate), Caymen Jones, CPhT; Nicole Hulsebus (P2 at the UI College of Pharmacy), and Kelsie Tingle, tech-in-training.

Pharmacy Times Editor-In-Chief Troy Trygstad took on buggy patrol for the #RollinRx team. The most popular items of the day were NSAIDs, chaffing oinments, and encouragement.

The sign on the back of the #RollinRx buggy announces the team's service to the RAGBRAI community of riders.
