2020 Emerging Leaders Program


Owning Your Future:  The Art of Self-Advocacy and Becoming a Champion for Change

A Virtual Meeting for All Pharmacists, Student Pharmacists, and Pharmacy Technicians

$25
for all pharmacists, students, and technicians

Anxiety about the future has reached new heights in 2020, and this is especially true for health care professionals – no matter where you are in your career. How can we fight this fear of the unknown? We take charge. As individuals, we forge our own paths to success. As professionals, we fortify pharmacy practice itself.

Join your pharmacy colleagues and peers for the 2020 Virtual Emerging Leaders Program on Saturday, September 19, for a crash course in both.

Whether you’re a new practitioner or a seasoned professional, a student pharmacist or a pharmacy technician, creating your career path goes hand-in-hand with clearing the way to pharmacist-provided care. You absolutely can influence the entities whose decisions dictate how you practice pharmacy every day, and we can show you how. Being part of a coordinated effort isn’t as time-consuming or as complicated as you might think!

Only YOU can forge your own professional path!

CONSIDER INVESTING IN OUR PHARMACY FUTURE:  
If you would like to help one or more pharmacists, student pharmacists, and/or pharmacy technicians gain these invaluable skills, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to sponsor their participation in the Emerging Leaders Program.
