    Pharmacists join the MPA realizing that they can accomplish more for their profession through an association than as individuals. Rules, regulations, legislative issues and the practice of pharmacy are changing on a daily basis. The MPA will help make this evolution a rewarding experience for the individual pharmacist, pharmacy or technician.

    The Maine Pharmacy Association offers strength and professionalism through association. We invite you to join with your professional colleagues to enhance the progress of pharmacy in Maine.
