Attendees Share Experiences at GAPNA’s Pharmacology Conference

GAPNA’s popular Contemporary Pharmacology and Prescribing in Older Adults Conference will be held April 14-18, 2020 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, Honolulu, HI.

The conference is uniquely designed to maximize education (earn up to 18 contact hours, which includes 18 hours of pharmacology credit); networking (meet other attendees focused on pharmacological concerns for their patients and interact with leading experts and industry representatives); exploration (discover the distinct personality, adventures, activities, and sights of the  Hawaiian Islands); and time (take advantage of a specially modified schedule to earn your education and enjoy your vacation; conference sessions during the first half of the day allow for relaxation and exploration in the afternoon and evening).
