A Webinar Series to Enhance the Pharmacist and Pharmacy Technician Alliance

May 2, 2020

9 a.m.-2:20 p.m.

 

To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, Governor Whitmer has put a "Stay Home, Stay Safe" Executive Order in place. During these uncertain times, Michigan Pharmacists Association realizes that pharmacists and pharmacy technicians still need to earn live continuing education credit for licensure renewal. Therefore, the MSCP and MSPT educational program, Dynamic Duos: We're In This Together, is being converted to a virtual event delivered by webinar and will provide 5.0 hours of LIVE continuing education credit.

Registrations will be accepted until 4 p.m. on April 13, 2020. Instructions to access the virtual event will be emailed to registrants before 10 a.m. on April 14. Register online at https://fs27.formsite.com/7jFRIO/56rm3jt3gs/index.html.
