McKesson Corp. last week announced the program for ideaShare 2016, an annual conference and exhibition, to be held June 26-29 at McCormick Place in Chicago, that brings independent pharmacists together in an interactive forum.
“McKesson ideaShare brings innovative ideas and industry experts together to help independent pharmacy owners discover new solutions to grow their business," McKesson U.S. Pharmaceutical President Mark Walchirk said. "With dozens of continuing education courses and the opportunity to network with peers for solutions to the issues they face every day, our annual conference is designed to help pharmacies invigorate their business, improve results for their patients and build the foundation for future success.”
From the general session to continuing education seminars and courses to the extensive exhibition floor, participants will have the opportunity to network and collaborate in ways to improve their pharmaceutical businesses.
The conference also features the Health Mart annual meeting where more than 4,600 members and prospects will hear President Steve Courtman's presentation on the independent pharmacy franchise. Health Mart will also offer three sessions on business growth and practices, marketing and using social media as a marketing tool.
Attendees can close out the 2016 experience with the final night party at the Field Museum. The final networking opportunity of the conference features live entertainment and regional cuisine.
