Advancing The Profession of Pharmacy

Day 2 – Effective Hiring and Training Strategies for Rockstar Pharmacy Teams

by | Feb 28, 2018 | Consulting Pharmacist Education

I’ve already mentioned that on March 21st, we’ll be kicking off the 2018 Elevate Pharmacy Summit – a one-of-a-kind, FREE virtual event for pharmacists, like you, who want a more profitable and successful practice.

But I haven’t shared ALL of the value of attending.

I’ve been working hand-in-hand with The NCPA Innovation Center to get 11.5 accredited CPE hours for each session!

  • Its free
  • Its CE hours
  • Its the only Pharmacy Conference you can attend in your house slippers

Well, I guess technically you COULD attend a conference in your bunny slippers, but I digress…

From March 21st to March 25th, you’ll have exclusive access to the brains and business acumen of these hand-picked experts… all for FREE.

This is my invitation to you to sign up for Elevate’s 2018 Summit right away so you can continue to build on the expertise and industry insights you gained last year and most importantly, continue to grow your business with a clear action plan, expert advice and best practices that have been tested for success.
