Innovation Classroom: The Intersection of Technology and Medicine on the Road to Better Health
December 2 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST
Innovation Classroom session sponsored by McKesson Corporation.
Every day, patients visit their local pharmacy with a prescription, but leave without their medication. Why? It’s simply too expensive. In this session, we’ll address how new technology is streamlining the prescription process and empowering patients to get the medicines they need for better health.
