The Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) as a provider of continuing pharmacy education. Details for each continuing education session, including descriptions, program objectives, presenter details, activity type, UAN, and more are available at http://www.papharmacists.com/events/Sessions.aspx?id=987890.

Grievance Policy

PPA strives to provide only the highest quality continuing pharmacy education programs. PPA also has strict policies regarding bias, conflicts of interest, and commercial support in our CE programs. If you feel that one or more programs offered at this conference included biased content, please bring this to a PPA staff member’s attention as soon as possible.



Unless listed with the CE activity, no commercial support has been received and all CE speakers have no conflicts of interest to disclose. If a CE program has a disclosure listed, the speaker has indicated that they may have a vested interest in the content of their presentation, however all speakers are required to exhibit fair content balance providing the audience with information of multiple perspectives from which to form a professional opinion. If you do not feel a presenter has complied with this policy, please let PPA staff know immediately.


We thank all of our CE presenters for their interest and support!
