Make Health Care Reform Work for You and Your Patients!

Please note this year's schedule: The conference begins at noon on Monday, May 11, and concludes with a pharmacist rally on Wednesday morning, May 13. The Congressional Reception is now Tuesday evening. Get involved! Register today!

Don't Just Dream It, Do It
Register today for the Pharmacy Ownership Workshop, May 1-3, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Sponsored by Pharmacists Mutual, McKesson, and Rochester Drug, the Pharmacy Ownership Workshop is specifically designed for pharmacists considering pharmacy ownership or desiring additional management skills. More than 50% of past workshop participants now own their own pharmacy. Class size is limited to the first 75 paid registrants, so register early. To register or for more information, click here.

NCPA Members Forum Series

Join us on April 29 for the next discussion on "The Impact of ARRA [American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009] on Health Information Technology and Privacy Provisions in Retail Pharmacy."
