PSSNY's Mission Statement: To unite and empower the profession of pharmacy through advocacy, education, networking, and interprofessional collaboration.
What is PSSNY?
The Pharmacists Society of the State of New York (PSSNY) was established in 1879, a not-for-profit incorporated society representing the pharmacist profession, the largest pharmacy association in New York State. PSSNY's policymaking body is our House of Delegates, representing pharmacists from all over New York State. PSSNY has several Academies representing the diverse practice settings of pharmacists, and we are nationally accredited by the American Council on Pharmaceutical Education (ACPE) to provide continuing education to pharmacists. PSSNY provides thousands of hours of continuing education each year via our regional affiliate organizations and two annual meetings.
PSSNY delivers "Your Weekly E-Script ", each Friday morning, which provides regulatory, legal and event news from New York State.
PSSNY works very closely with state and federal agencies in communicating alerts and other important information. PSSNY is represented on many state agency councils, committees and task forces. More than 350 million times a year, patients access a New York State pharmacy making pharmacists the most accessible health care provider in your community. Pharmacists have consistently been placed in the top three among the countries most trusted professionals for twelve consecutive years.
