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.

The 8th DEA National Prescription Drug Take-Back Event
The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is on April 26th from 10am-2pm. Local law enforcement agencies and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will be working together to hold the 8th Drug Take-Back Day. This event will allow citizens to dispose of unwanted, expired, or unused prescription drugs (only pills or patches are accepted). The service is free and anonymous, with no questions asked. The last national event held in October 2013 established 4,114 collection sites and received 324 tons of prescription drugs from the community.
The Collection Site Locator can be used to identify a location participating in the Take-Back Event in your area. Get more information at http://1.usa.gov/P9EzM2 or click on the Community Affairs tab above.
