Why Attend

The evolution of the Summer Meeting continues. In response to attendee and exhibitor requests, we have reformatted the Summer Meeting to make it a more engaging, vibrant, and customizable experience for all who attend. This transformation includes targeted and clinically focused education tracks, more social events and networking, specialty certification review opportunities, and the availability to collaborate with leaders in not just pharmacy, but other areas of healthcare practice.

Participants will enjoy the education and sense of community found in a boutique conference focusing on specific topic areas, while simultaneously taking advantage of all the opportunities that come with attending a larger pharmacy meeting. Customize your experience—select a clinically focused education track, or attend individual sessions of interest!
