Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences hosted its inaugural Albany Community Health Day (formerly the ACPHS Health & Wellness Expo) on Saturday, September 24, 2016 at the Capital South Campus Center at 20 Warren Street in Albany.

The Capital South Campus Center is also home to College Parkside Pharmacy, the school's own student operated pharmacy. The pharmacy opened in January 2017.
