This is your opportunity to expand your knowledge, upgrade your skills, connect with colleagues, and earn continuing education credit.

One-day and two-day registrations are available. Pharmacists who attend both days can earn up to 15 hours of CE in a wide variety of relevant topics selected by the Tennessee Pharmacists Association and the Tennessee Society of Long-Term Care Pharmacists. The learning experience is enhanced by opportunities to network with other pharmacy professionals who share the same challenges and experiences.

In addition, exhibitors will be on hand to discuss products and services of particular interest to those who work with geriatric patients or in long-term care settings.
