HSOP Motto

Southern Pharmacy Administration Conference


The Southern Pharmacy Administration Conference (SPAC) was first held in 1985. Over the following 30 years, the conference has been held 14 times, rotating host responsibilities approximately every two years among universities generally located in the southern and southeastern US. Auburn University’s Department of Health Outcomes Research and Policy (HORP) hosted SPAC June 7-9, 2018, in Auburn, Alabama.

A primary goal of SPAC continues to be the exchange of ideas and experiences among programs that share similar opportunities and challenges within a defined geographic region. Emphasis is placed on creating a venue for graduate students to network and present their research. In addition to networking opportunities, SPAC allows faculty to share teaching and research experiences and to expand graduate student mentoring.

We sincerely appreciate financial support of SPAC 2018.

The Department of Health Outcomes Research and Policy thanks our sponsors:


  • International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research

SPAC 2018 greatly acknowledges Research in Social and Administrative Pharmacy for publishing abstracts presented at the conference.
