Washington, DC US
June 17, 2019 to June 18, 2019

A two-day intensive training session designed for health center staff members who are responsible for or closely involved in the operation and compliance of the center’s pharmacy program.  Whether your health center is new to the 340B program or has been participating in the program for years, the curriculum is designed to address compliance challenges including:

  • Scope of grant and site participation considerations
  • 340B drug inventory management approaches
  • Policy and procedure development
  • Contract pharmacy and vendor issues
