The high-quality material is available free to members and non-members. On its e-Learning website, ASHP states:

“Maintaining our commitment to delivering dynamic, high-quality educational content and professional development experiences during these unprecedented times is a priority for ASHP, and we are pleased to offer select sessions from the planned 2020 Summer Meetings and Exhibition programming as online home-study activities.”

Dr. Joe Lassiter, TRG’s President and Managing Member, is pleased to provide two pharmacy informatics and technology educational sessions as part of the ASHP Summer Meeting Programming:
