The Asheville Summit is an annual event hosted by UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy Asheville Campus. The event is planned by pharmacy students for pharmacy students, pharmacist , and other members and students within the healthcare field. Over 120 people representing 10 schools from across the southeast come together to engage in an event that centers around innovations in healthcare. Attendees will leave with new ideas and new relationships, and return energized to share and advance the ideas that they have learned.

Each year, the Asheville Summit gives its participants the opportunity to explore a theme within pharmacy that is both relevant and timely. In the past, we have discussed provider status, innovation within pharmacy practice, and the importance of interprofessional care.

This year we will explore topics relevant to women’s health, discuss the current status and future of women in leadership, and share ideas for the promotion of women’s health and leadership. Come join us as we will have participants who are not only professional leaders in their respected fields, but display endless passion for the people they serve. Topics will range from mental health, contraception, access in rural areas, obstetrics and much more!

The Asheville Summit is a great event that encourages and inspires student pharmacists to advocate for causes that benefit the pharmacy profession and improve patient care.
