2020 PSW Virtual Annual Meeting

The PSW Board of Directors and PSW staff have made the difficult decision to move the PSW Annual Meeting from an in-person offering to a virtual platform due to the continued uncertainty surrounding COVID-19. 

The conference will offer both a LIVE and an on-demand component. The live conference schedule and available on-demand content are outlined below. 23 hours of CE for pharmacists and 14.25 hours of CE for pharmacy technicians will be available.

Kalahari Pharmacy Weekend!
For those comfortable making plans for a safe get-away, the Kalahari Resort will be offering special discounts/incentives for PSW members the weekend of August 28-30, 2020. PSW will post a link and provide information in an upcoming Fast Facts regarding the offer.
