Pharmacists, pharmacy students, academic faculty, nurses, pharmaceutical and healthcare executives, and physicians are invited to attend.

The conference is named in honor of the late Roy A. Bowers, who served as dean of the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy from 1951 to 1978. It is the longest, continuously running pharmacy conference series in the nation, and remains committed to advancing all areas of pharmacy practice in hospitals, communities and the pharmaceutical industry, as professionals strive to deliver the best possible health care for patients.

Speakers will represent managed care, hospitals, the pharmaceutical industry and community. The event will provide a forum for discussion and interaction, including discussion on the involvement of retail pharmacists in outpatient care and coordinating opportunities with the PCMH model.
