Good day!
It is with great pleasure that we invite your college to the First Philippine Pharmacy Summit (PPS) to be held this January 20, 2013 (Sunday). PPS aims to showcase to pharmacy students and pharmacists the emerging fields in the practice of pharmacy. This will be accomplished through inviting distinguished pharmacists from Taiwan, Indonesia, Thailand, and Philippines to talk about their experiences in the different novel fields of pharmacy practice. This will be a great opportunity to see recent updates in pharmacy practice and a possible venue for socialization with fellow pharmacists or pharmacy students.

PPS  will also serve as a venue for poster presentations on research conducted in the field of pharmacy. In this  light, we are encouraging your students and faculty members to submit abstracts of  their studies conducted under the fields of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Pharmaceutical Practice.
