Spotlight Posters

What is a Spotlight Poster?

Spotlight Posters are professional posters providing informal discussions among conference attendees about select topics that are being highlighted in 2021. Poster presentations provide an excellent opportunity to share your creative approaches, challenges, and innovative ideas in pharmacy. The Midyear Clinical Meeting & Exhibition Spotlight Posters are open to pharmacy practitioners.

ASHP will be accepting poster submissions from August 15 to October 1 (11:59 p.m., Pacific Time).
