PSSA Symposium

The PSSA Pharmacy Symposium - 23rd - 24th October 2019

The Pharmaceutical Society of South Africa (PSSA) has joined forces with The Pharmacy Show in 2019 to present a two-day symposium which will be open to anyone working within the pharmacy sector in South Africa and SADC region whilst attending The Pharmacy Show this year on 23 and 24 October at the Gallagher Convention Centre.

This collaboration will see a two-day conference programme organised and hosted by the PSSA with the inclusion of their four sectors, namely the Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences of South Africa (APSSA), South African Association of Community Pharmacists (SAACP), South African Association of Hospital and Institutional Pharmacists (SAAHIP) and South African Association of Pharmacists in Industry (SAAPI).

PSSA and its four sectors will also have an integrated exhibition stand at the event creating a fantastic opportunity for visitors to not only access the PSSA symposium free of charge and gain up to date, reliable and relevant information, but to interact with office bearers from the National and Sectoral offices and executive committees.

The Pharmacy Symposium will be open to any visitor to attend (both PSSA members and non-members) and promises to deliver an exciting, integrated programme that caters for all spheres of pharmacy. The full symposium programme will be available in the next issue of the SAPJ.
