Annual Arthur E. Schwarting Pharmacy Practice Symposium
The Arthur E. Schwarting Symposium has historically been an annual, all day continuing education program for pharmacists held in May on the University of Connecticut Storrs campus. The program was named in honor of Arthur E. Schwarting, Ph.D. a former dean of the School of Pharmacy. This year we are joining forces with the Connecticut Chapter of the Association of Consulting Pharmacists (CT-ASCP) and calling the symposium the Schwarting Senior Symposium. There will be three different tracks occurring throughout the day long event. See below for all of the details!
