APA Research and Education Foundation

The Board of Trustees of the Alabama Pharmacy Association at its meeting on August 3, 1996, established the Alabama Pharmacy Association Research and Education Foundation. (APAREF) The Foundation is organized to foster, encourage, coordinate and conduct research, education, literacy, scientific and charitable activities focusing on the science of pharmacy with respect to:

  • Promoting the public welfare through the development of quality pharmaceutical sciences;
  • Promoting the advancement and diffusion of knowledge and understanding;
  • Sponsoring studies and research;
  • Providing financial support for educational instructions and providing scholarships, grants, awards and other opportunities to deserving individuals;
  • Conducting training courses, seminars, discussion groups, forums, panels or lectures;
  • Engaging in any and all lawful activities in furtherance of the forgoing purposes or incidental thereto except as restricted by the Foundation By-Laws.

In April 2016, the APAREF hosted the APA Leadership Conference. The APAREF Board is committed to sponsoring a Leadership Conference every 3-4 years. Membership support through direct donations and monies raised at the Annual Silent Auction at the APA Conference and Trade Show allow the APAREF to fund events and establish and develop future programs for Alabama pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, students, and the public.

The Alabama Pharmacy Association Research and Education Foundation is recognized by the IRS as a Private Foundation and therefore contributions are tax deductible.
