Register for Conference




The Mississippi Association of Recovering Pharmacists (MARP) held its annual seminar the weekend of August 18-19, 2017 at Trotter Convention Center in Columbus, MS. The title of the seminar was "Understanding Roadblocks to Recovery" and featured lectures from Lisa Frederiksen, Cheri Atwood, Dr. Michael Wilkerson, and Maggie Banger. Please click on the "News" tab for a more detailed account.


The Mississippi Association of Recovering Pharmacists was founded August 30, 1987. Several interested pharmacists got together to form an organization to aid impaired pharmacists. The members did this at the suggestion of the Board after Jerry Wilson had gone to the Board to ask their help in acquiring a phone line of sorts which would be used to answer questions about addiction. The Board, in turn, told Jerry to form an organization which would have the authority to monitor pharmacists who had problems with addiction in the past and therefore problems with the Board. Mr. H.W. Holleman, then Executive Director of the Board, told Jerry that the Board had long been waiting for a viable group to surface. more
