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) is hosting SPAC June 7-9, 2018, in Auburn, Alabama.

HORP is excited to host the conference, “Patient Safety: Teaching and Research to Optimize Medication Use”. A variety of educational and networking activities is planned, including poster and podium sessions for graduate students, a networking reception, several meals, and a closing dinner.

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. Please email to learn more about sponsorship opportunities.
