About Us

Our Mission

The Great Lakes Pharmacy Conference exposes regional pre-pharmacy students to the growing field of pharmacy, creates unique learning and networking opportunities, and enhances educational and career potential. We aim to accomplish this through a series of interactive activities that both expands on the framework of pharmacy and connects students with professional innovators and relevant current issues.

Our conference allows undergraduates to explore the field of pharmacy and is held at the University of Michigan each year. Our unique conference is hosted and planned entirely by a team of undergraduates dedicated to our mission.  Learn more about them below!
