Our new plant-powered Omega 3-6-9 complex is grown and sourced with people and the planet in mind, sourced from fellow B-corp, ahiflower.”

    A conference full of people.

    Registration opened June 5 for the National Community Pharmacists Association’s 2024 Annual Convention, set for Oct. 26-29 in Columbus, Ohio. This year’s themeGPS: Growth, Performance, Successwill help pharmacy teams navigate the obstacles and opportunities in today’s pharmacy landscape, said Lea Wolsoncroft, president of NCPA

    “From reimbursement rates and the DIR hangover to the regulatory outlook to the anticompetitive practices of PBMs, independent pharmacies have been dealing with many bumps in the road,” said Wolsoncroft, owner of Remedies Pharmacy and a resident of Birmingham, Ala. “At the same time, there’s an ever broader range of services owners can put in place to meet patients where they are in their health journeys, yes, and also provide pharmacies with a more reliable path to revenue. NCPA’s convention is where independent pharmacy teams go each year to find inspiration on ways to get ahead, share their own ideas, and build or renew relationships. I’m looking forward to what’s sure to be a great convention and to seeing many of my friends and colleagues in Columbus.”
