Wendland to mark 17th year moderating DSN Industry Issues Summit panel
At Drug Store News’ annual Industry Issues Summit, participants on a panel about patient care at retail pharmacies will be talking to an expert, both in the field and at moderating panels.
Hamacher Resource Group vice president of strategic relations Dave Wendland will be moderating the “Great Expectations: How Retail Pharmacy is Executing Patient Care” panel at the event, being held virtually Nov. 30 through Dec. 3, marking his 17th year as a moderator at the event.
Wendland’s panel will take place Dec. 2 at noon CT. The panel will discuss how store-level execution is saving lives and protecting patients against new and challenging illnesses by offering access, convenience and quality at a low cost. Panelists include Adam Keeth of Sam’s Club, Becky Dant of Costco, Summer Williams Kerly of Rite Aid, Leon Nevers of HEB, Bob Pessel of VMC Pharmacy Program & Buying Group, Orsula Knowlton of Tabula Rasa Healthcare, Colette Heimowitz of Simply Good Foods and Stacy Burch of BD.
“The pandemic has caused an upheaval in almost every aspect of the economy – including business, education, travel, and healthcare. The accelerated response across the healthcare supply chain has been remarkable,” Wendland said. “I look forward to the conversation with this group of thought leaders who have worked with their teams to make a positive difference for patients before the onset of COVID-19, during its rise, and who will continue to promote patient well-being long after it has been eradicated.”
The DSN Industry Issues Summit kicks off Nov. 30 with a keynote delivered by NYU Stern School of Business professor Amy Webb, sponsored by The Emerson Group. On Dec. 1, the event will feature the “Fast-tracking: Retail Pharmacy’s Healthcare Role” panel, moderated by McKesson’s Nimesh Jhaveri. Wendland’s panel will take place Dec. 2 and the event will close out on Dec. 3 with the “Building Strategic Supplier and Retailer Partnerships” panel, moderated by Mack Elevation’s Dan Mack.
