Slowing Down to Put Patients on the Fast Track to Better Health (1.0 CE)

Are you ready to break out of the current cycle of filling prescriptions as fast as you can and start delivering the care that you’ve been trained to deliver? Join us as Antonio Ciaccia, APhA Senior Advisor, moderates an enlightening and inspiring conversation with pharmacists.

Nnodum Iheme, RPh and Emmanuel Ayanjoke, PharmD, MBA are making a major impact on their community by taking time to care for their patients, and are getting paid for their amazing work. You’ll also hear from Nick Trego of CareSource, a Medicaid payer, about how their investments in pharmacy are producing improvements in health outcomes and decreased costs for covered patients.

Keynote Presentation:
Redefining Possible

The system is broken. The problem is too big to solve. It’s impossible. We hear these phrases all too often. Meet our keynote speaker, Mick Ebeling, founder and CEO of Not Impossible Labs, who has made it his mission to make the impossible achievable. Ebeling will share the secret recipe he used to help a paralyzed artist create art again and to reimagine, redefine, and reinvent how prosthetic limbs are made. Whether it’s getting vaccines to people around the world, or helping hungry people in America access food, Ebeling’s work is solving real-world challenges by stepping back and looking at problems with fresh eyes to find new solutions. You’ll leave inspired, challenged, and maybe even with some new ideas about how you can tackle the impossible.
