For Technicians

Pharmacy technicians can earn up to 10 hours of CPE, including 6 hours on Saturday that features a pharmacy technician-specific track of timely topics PLUS an additional session in each block dually-accredited with pharmacists for technicians those looking for more advanced programming.

As always, Expo will wrap on Sunday with two traditional favorites – New Drug Update and Gamechangers sandwiching a pharmacy law session.
