UGA SNPhA Chapter to Host Regional Conference

UGA’s College of Pharmacy’s chapter of the Student National Pharmaceutical Association (SNPhA) will host the 2022 Regional Conference, which will be held February 25th through the 27th at the Westin Buckhead in Atlanta.  

“Our chapter is excited to highlight the amazing skills and passion that our members have, and we want to show the entire organization what exactly a UGA pharmacy student can do,” said Parth Patel, a P3 from Cartersville and UGA Chapter President and Region Conference Chair. 

Members from the 49 chapters in SNPhA’s Regions I and II  are expected to attend with the mission of furthering their pharmaceutical knowledge and expanding their network with professionals and students from across the country. 

“With all the support from the College, Dean Kelly Smith, and our members, we are planning to host a conference that will help students further their skills, learn from professionals from across the country, and build a larger network,” explained Patel. “We expect this to be a fantastic conference, and we are excited to meet and see everyone in person, for the first time in way too long.”

Each year, the conference draws more than 300 student pharmacists and pharmacists from all across the region. Participants are able to attend professional workshops and continuing education programs, hear guest lecturers, and share their respective experiences as current and future pharmacists.

In addition to these workshops, members will present their research and share what they have discovered with other SNPhA members and guests. A Clinical Skills Competition will take place in which students can compete with one another and show off their pharmaceutical skills.  The conference ends with a banquet and awards program, which will recognize chapters for the accolades they have earned during the year. 

“If anyone is interested in being a sponsor for this conference, we would really appreciate the collaboration and support to help make this regional conference a success. By investing in our conference, sponsors are investing in our vision to help students carve their path to becoming respected pharmacists who serve their community with the devotion and care that every patient deserves,” said Patel.
