Pharmacists…Advancing patient care
The Foundation coordinates the Annual Poster Presentations for both Students and New Practitioners. The presentations are held during the PPA Mid-Year Conference. While a special effort is made to encourage student and resident presenters, any member of PPA may individually or in a small group present a poster during the meeting. In keeping with the mission of the Foundation, posters are to focus on practice innovation. This is a great opportunity for students as well as residents and other practitioners to showcase their interest and commitment to advancing patient care.
The Call for Posters, which includes poster guidelines, suggestions, and other important information, is available by early fall before each conference and is posted on this page when available. Students, Residents, or New Practitioners interested in presenting posters and receiving the related recognition are encouraged to carefully review the Call for Posters. For those who decide to submit a poster, an application must be completed and submitted to PPA by the deadline.
The poster session is available for CE credit for attendees. Because of this, there are some additional requirements from previous years.

Poster Presentations at 2016 Mid-Year
We are proud of the 38 student posters that presented at Mid-Year in 2016. Photos and links to the poster presentations are available below. Those who attended the Mid-Year earned CE credit by learning from each student about their work.
Take the time to see the excellent work done by our future pharmacists!
