The future of pharmacy practice requires an “all hands on deck” approach.  At the summer meetings, engage with your peers and discover new answers to your questions.  “Chart your course” for successand implement these solutions into your practice while improving patient care.


Take part in a unique and effective learning model that is revolutionizing the way health professionals participate in live meetings.  This June at the ASHP Summer Meetings, choose one of four concurrent, content-targeted conferences.   This allows you to focus and participate in education and networking events with like-minded peers across the healthcare spectrum.   Here is the bonus… Regardless of which conference you choose to attend, you can access all of the sessions and events happening at any of the four meetings.  It’s the best of both worlds – focused education and networking in your specialization and the ability to explore other areas of interest.  Your meeting experience is completely customizable; you can choose to stay in your boutique conference, or attend any individual sessions taking place at the other meetings.


In addition, registrants to all four meetings will have access to:


● Over 18 hours of education presented by distinguished faculty

● Peer-to-peer active problem solving events and social gatherings

● Grand opening reception and lunch buffets

● Vendor exhibits and networking

● Keynote address

● House of delegate activities

● Pre-meeting BPS Review and Recertification

● And so much more!  


As one of the most easily accessible and affordable locations, Baltimore will deliver what is sure to be a unique and valuable professional development opportunity!
