ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Registration is now open for the National Community Pharmacists Association’s 2021 Annual Convention, taking place Oct. 9-12, in Charlotte, N.C. After a year when the COVID-19 pandemic caused the association’s last Convention to take place virtually, NCPA president Brian Caswell says this year’s Convention is a great opportunity to reconnect with neighborhood pharmacy colleagues and allies at the premier event for owners and their staff.
“Though travel was curbed and meetings were held online, in many ways, independent pharmacy came together as never before to serve our communities, adapt to the many challenges thrown our way, and help lead the fight against COVID,” says Caswell, owner of Wolkar Drug in Baxter Springs, Kan. “Our teams worked hard and demonstrated the value and the beauty of independent neighborhood pharmacy. But how sweet it will be to again interact in person! At NCPA’s Convention, we’ll talk about what we accomplished, how we did it, and ways this will change the future of pharmacy and the prescription payment system. I can’t wait to see everyone there.”
