Of the 99 participants, 62 were pharmacists (63 percent). Greg Schwartz, a pharmacist from Minnesota, won a free trip to the Amazon (Courtesy of International Expeditions) at the American Pharmaceutical Association convention in March, 1995, and had this to say about the trip: "As winner of the Amazon trip, I would like to thank ABC, International Expeditions, and the Texas Pharmacy Foundation for the trip of a lifetime. The Faculty, Workshops, Guides and location in the Amazon Rainforest were outstanding."
Three trips are scheduled for 1996 to Central and South American rainforests.
