The association also spearheaded several civic and humanitarian projects & training programs which seek to teach both new & old drugstore owners on the more modern operational methods courtesy of participating drug companies. Of course, the social affairs were never missing, for it was always in the spirit of camaraderie and friendship that the officers and members of DSAP continue its untiring task of uniting the thousands of drugstores all over the country.
