VPhA 2022 Virtual Midyear Conference

February 18 - February 20

Join us this February for “2022: The Year of You!” VPhA’s Virtual Midyear Conference!

Midyear has gone Virtual!

VPhA is not excited to move to virtual, but this was the most responsible choice. We know that many of you are busy serving your community and working hard to stay healthy. The last thing VPhA would like to do is be the reason your pharmacy is spread thinner.

VPhA has added on an extra day of programming! Earn up to 13 CE (continuing education) credits, learn timely, state-specific content, and virtually network with your peers.

Registration

Registration IS NOW CLOSED. Check out our Midyear Home Study Series – COMING SOON!


If you registered before January 14, 2022, your registration was transitioned.
