UGARx Print/Online Changes
Beginning with the Fall 2014 issue of UGARx, we will only be printing and mailing the magazine to those alumni donors and friends who have contributed more than $500 annually to the College of Pharmacy.
All issues of UGARx will continue to be posted on our website (www.rx.uga.edu) for alumni to download and print as they please. We will send emails and online notices to everyone about the quarterly postings of UGARx.
