Welcome to the Alaska Pharmacists Association
The Mission of the Alaska Pharmacists Association is to preserve, promote and lead the profession of pharmacy in Alaska.
The Alaska Pharmacists Association (AKPhA) is committed to giving Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians an opportunity to voice their issues and concerns regarding pharmacy practice in Alaska.
Whether you are from Southeast, Southcentral or the Interior, members of the Board comprise each region to ensure equal representation.
AKPhA was founded in 1956 when the state was still a territory. Although the American Pharmaceutical Association recognized the association in 1957, it fell dormant for a number of years and reemerged in 1966. Since that time, AKPhA has held annual conventions in Anchorage traditionally around the Fur Rendezvous celebration.
