2019 PPAG Fall Conference

Call for Student Program Proposals

The PPAG Education Committee is seeking submissions for sessions and speakers for STUDENT SESSIONS at the 2019 PPAG Fall Conference in Lexington, KY from September 19-22, 2019

PPAG has seen tremendous growth in the number of student groups and student participation at our Annual Meeting. We hope to expand student programming during our Fall Conference. These excited student pharmacists are eager to learn more about pediatric pharmacy. Pharmacy residents and new faculty members are the ideal individuals to provided education to this group because they understand the topics that may interest these students. If you are interested in providing a 20-30 minute presentation at a national meeting, please submit your ideas for consideration!
