The Georgia Pharmacy Virtual Convention
September 10-12, 2020

In case you didn’t hear this already, the Georgia Pharmacy Convention is going virtual. It promises to be a year like no other and will include all of your favorites: general sessions, education, networking, exhibits, and all the things you have come to expect from the Georgia Pharmacy Convention, delivered in a virtual format.

Included with your registration are 28 hours of CE credit. And you’ll still be able to access sessions and get CE credit for 30 days after the convention, so there’s even greater value in attending. Choose from a variety of clinical topics including patient access to hormonal contraception, solutions for quieting creaky joints, improving medication therapy as patients transition through the healthcare system, pharmacogenomics, and more.

Go Rebecca Bruning!!!

We are excited to announce, for the first time, the APhA-ASP National Standing Committee members for 2020-2021!

The majority of the Academy's work is completed through the five APhA-ASP National Standing Committees: Awards, Communications, International, Member Engagement, and Policy.

Members of the APhA-ASP National Standing Committees play a vital role in representing student members' views to the Association, and will serve as national representatives and session leaders at APhA-ASP meetings including: APhA-ASP Summer Leadership Institute, APhA-ASP Midyear Regional Meetings, and more! Aside from the specific roles and responsibilities of their specialized committees, the APhA-ASP National Standing Committee members make up the majority of the delegates that represent the Academy of Student Pharmacists as a whole, in the APhA House of Delegates.

Congratulations on this incredible honor, and best of luck over the next year!
