Chief Pharmacy Officer Forum 

Monday, April 8 - Tuesday, April 9, 2024

Hospital pharmacies are rapidly evolving and a hotbed for healthcare innovation. They are also increasingly essential aspects of the hospital's clinical care strategy and financial stability. Learn how executives from top health systems are revitalizing their pharmacy strategy amid workforce strains and preparing for the future.

Top pharmacy executives from AdventHealth, CommonSpirit, Mayo Clinic and more will share the most effective strategies to tackle the big challenges they're seeing today in these candid conversations. 

Why should you be there? Here are three reasons: 

  • Meet and network with other chief pharmacy officers and pharmacy directors at the nation's leading health systems and hospitals.
  • Learn best practices for drug shortage mitigation, supporting workforce demands, new technology and handling the spike in weight loss drug prescriptions. 
  • Be the first to hear success stories from your peers across the U.S.

This jam-packed two day forum will equip attendees with vital connections and insights to thrive in the future. Don't get left behind.

Thank you to our sponsors:
