The first PCSC annual conference under the HDA

2018 HDA PCSC Educational Seminar

May 15 to 17, 2018 | Novartis Corporate Headquarters, East Hanover, N.J.USA
Last year I attended this event and was incredibly impressed. Having been to many conferences over the years I feel its rare nowadays to attend an event and leave feeling that you have been educated. The topics selected feel fresh and with a wide and diverse range of speakers, its lends itself to feel like a succession of brilliant college lectures. This is time well spent and if you were to attend one event this year, this should be it.
In 2017, PCSC became a service offering of the Healthcare Distribution Alliance (HDA), the national organization representing primary pharmaceutical distributors. HDA members are the vital link between the nation’s pharmaceutical manufacturers and more than 200,000 pharmacies, hospitals, long-term care facilities, clinics and others nationwide.
Please find some further information below on this years event and I hope to see you there:
