In the spring 2017 PORPP alumni newsletter, director Anirban Basu announced the establishment of The Penny Evans UW International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR) Student Chapter Support Fund.

This fund, named in honor of our highly-esteemed, award-winning program administrator, Penny Evans, will support student activities for our ISPOR chapter.

Penny retired in June 2017, but her influence and excellence remain forever imprinted on our program—and is now  encapsulated in this fund.

The students and alumni of the PORPP program know first hand how important Penny has been to the growth and excellence of this globally-renowned program.
