On April 26, 2014 from 10AM to 2PM, DEA will be offering a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs. Last year, the public turned in 647,211 pounds (324 tons) of expired and unwanted medications for safe and proper disposal at the 5,683 take-back sites across the country. Help DEA spread the word and make 2014 another successful year for this initiative.
The APhA-APPM Transitions of Care Special Interest Group (SIG) is a fresh professional network of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians working to overcome transitional challenges and enhance collegial collaboration in all practice settings. APhA members, join today and start networking across the country.
APhA Student Pharmacist members gain practical hands-on experience through patient care projects such as Operation Heart, Generation Rx, Operation Diabetes to name just a few.
APhA-APRS seeks volunteers for its committees in the areas of Education, Awards, and Postgraduate activities. Committee service is a great way to get involved in the Association and network with colleagues. Previous committee experience is not required.

I first became interested in being a pharmacist … the summer after high school when I began working as a pharmacy technician.
I joined APhA because … I wanted to be part of a forward-thinking organization that gives its members the opportunity to develop and utilize leadership skills.
For a profession that has been “at the crossroads” for as long as many of us can remember, events of recent months are reassuring. Finally, it seems, we have looked one way and seen the end of the product as a reliable source of income. Looking in the other direction, we see the increasingly viable possibility of earning our keep by delivering patient care services—like most other health professionals.
