Boston Harbor Skyline at Night

Join your colleagues in Boston for Pharmacy Education 2018 and hear from experts in education, science, leadership and success at work. Discover opportunities for pharmacy and pharmacy educators to engage with new audiences, including other healthcare professionals and patients.

Pharmacists and Pharmacy Education: Leaders in Healthcare

The 2018 AACP Annual Meeting will build on the success of last year’s record breaking event. We’ll explore how new approaches to work relationships lead to greater success and learn about current FDA practice in the review of drug applications. And we’ll examine the root causes of the opioid crisis and how pharmacists can reverse the trend.

At the meeting, you’ll:

  • Explore the future of pharmacy and pharmacy education.
  • Learn about the national pharmacy awareness campaign – and how you can participate.
  • Discover new ways to collaborate, on campus and in the community.
  • Contribute your stories of pharmacists making a difference in patient’s lives.
  • Reconnect with colleagues and share news about the profession and the Academy.


Fine-tune Your Mind and Body

Fitness enthusiasts are welcome to enjoy a sunrise yoga class on Monday at 6:30 a.m. that allows all fitness levels to participate. The class will be held in a carpeted room so mats are not required.

Feeling like something more energetic? Join us Monday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. for a Latin-inspired Zumba class. The routines feature aerobic/fitness interval training with a combination of fast and slow rhythms that tone and sculpt. Open to all levels.

Not able to join us on Monday? Jump start your Tuesday morning and join your colleagues in a high energy circuit workout. This aerobic workout puts the emphasis as much on having fun as breaking a sweat. All levels welcome.

AACP Student Poster Competition

Visit the posters of student pharmacists, graduate students, residents, fellows and postdocs. On Sunday, July 22, from 4:30 p.m.–5:30 p.m., they'll be at their posters to present their research and scholarship. Multidisciplinary teams will be judging the posters and winners will be announced during the Tuesday General Session. Interested in volunteering as a judge? Contact Kirsten F. Block.

Opening General Session Keynote Book Signing

How to Be Happy at Work: The Power of Purpose, Hope and Friendship by Annie McKee

Join keynote speaker Annie McKee, Ph.D., as she signs copies of her book, How to Be Happy at Work: The Power of Purpose, Hope and Friendship. Based on extensive research and decades of experience with leaders, this book reveals that people must have three essential elements in order to be happy at work: A sense of purpose and the chance to contribute to something bigger than themselves; a vision that is powerful and personal, creating a real sense of hope; and resonant, friendly relationships. "How to Be Happy at Work" deepens our understanding of what it means to be truly fulfilled and effective at work and provides clear, practical advice and instruction for how to get there—no matter what job you have.
