What is PSSNY?
The Pharmacists Society of the State of New York (PSSNY) was established in 1879 and is a not-for-profit incorporated society representing the pharmacist profession and is 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, including: Academy of Owner Pharmacists, Academy of Employee Pharmacists, Academy of Consultant Pharmacists and the Academy of Compounding, Home Infusion and Nuclear Pharmacists. PSSNY is nationally accredited by the American Council on Pharmaceutical Education (ACPE) to provide continuing education to pharmacists. ACPE is currently the only continuing education institution that the NYS Board of Pharmacy recognizes for purposes of licensure renewal. PSSNY provides thousands of hours of continuing education each year via our regional affiliate organizations and two annual meetings.
PSSNY also provides publications and web site access to our members and can communicate alerts in a very fast and effective manner. In addition to using a fax tree setup, we are capable of alerting those members with e-mail automatically via our web site when they have enlisted the e-mail list.
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 including the NYS Department of Health’s adult immunization project, Mass Immunization Emergency Preparedness Task Force, Task Force on Increasing Tissue and Organ Donors and the Expanded Syringe Access Program. More than 350 million times a year, patients come into New York State’s pharmacies making pharmacists the most accessible health care provider.
