MPC provides a forum for discussion and understanding between Maryland's pharmacy associations on issues impacting the practice of pharmacy and the public's health. MPC strengthens relationships between pharmacy associations in the state and encourages collaborative efforts to benefit the pharmacists and patients of Maryland.

MPC consists of both full and affiliate members and is chaired by two co-chairs on a rotating basis by organizations with full membership. The group meets regularly on a quarterly basis to develop a unified message regarding pharmacy issues and bills for each legislative session.

  • Maryland Pharmaceutical Society
  • Maryland Society of Health System Pharmacists
  • University of Maryland Baltimore School of Pharmacy Student Government Association

The keynote event organized by the Coalition on an annual basis is the Legislative Day event. This takes place in Annapolis in early February. Hundreds of pharmacists and student pharmacists take part in bringing the unified pharmacy message to the legislators, showcasing prominent issues including immunizations, collaborative practice, and vaccinations.
