CE Overview

Impacting Public Health through Research & Practice

In this one hour continuing education program, we will highlight the important roles that pharmacists and pharmacy researchers play in public health, both at the state, national and global levels. 

Using two specific case studies, we will underscore how the pharmacy profession is impacting public health through research and practice.   Additionally, we will challenge individual participants to identify opportunities to impact public health in their individual practices
