Professionals never stop learning. That’s especially true in pharmacy compounding, where laws, regs and standards are constantly changing. Your reputation—and your patients’ safety—depends on you keeping current, on knowing the right thing to do and doing it consistently. And that’s true for pharmacists and technicians alike. The Alliance for Pharmacy Compounding and OPA will co-host 12 hours of CPE including a virtual Expo! Speaker Q&A available following the livestreamed presentations on February 9 and 10.

A lot is happening in the profession of pharmacy in Ohio. OPA is fighting to improve working conditions and have representatives working with the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy Pharmacist Workload Advisory Committee to protect both you and your patients.

OPA is working with both ODM and Gainwell to resolve issues and provide a smoother transition. None of this would be possible without YOU, our members. We need YOUR voice to accomplish these initiatives and more!
