Time is running out to register for the flagship conference PSA17, PSA says
With limited tickets available and social events nearing sell out, PSA invites all pharmacists, industry leaders and health professionals to visit www.PSA17.com and choose from a variety of registration options.
PSA National President Dr Shane Jackson said PSA17’s unique and engaging program is an ideal opportunity to discuss key issues and network with pharmacists and industry partners from across the globe.
“This year’s conference will be our biggest yet, with a broader education program and more networking opportunities than ever,” said Dr Jackson. “With a record number of delegates, we urge all pharmacists in Australia to avoid disappointment and register now.”
Dr Jackson said he was delighted to welcome Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt as a keynote speaker to officially open PSA17 on Friday, July 28.
Federal Shadow Health Minister Catherine King MP will also deliver a keynote address highlighting Labor’s National Health platform and the party’s “vision for the pharmacy sector” ahead of the next Federal election.
Other highlights not to be missed include international expert Dr Tim Hanlon’s keynote address on innovative solutions to increasing pharmaceutical needs around the world, a panel session on international antimicrobial resistance headlined by Professor Sabiha Essack, and a presentation on introducing change programs by former Australian Comic of the Year Marty Wilson.
Dr Jackson said: “In addition to PSA17’s innovative education program, the social program features events for every budget, which are already starting to sell out. This is a great chance to connect with fellow pharmacists and build new relationships in a relaxed environment.”
The Gala Dinner on Saturday 29 July will have a Golden Globes theme with a touch of Hollywood glamour. PSA student and intern delegates will also receive free entry to the Early Career Pharmacists Party, while the Fellows Dinner will provide the chance to forge new connections with others in the industry.
PSA is partnering with the Commonwealth Pharmacists Association (CPA) to jointly host PSA17 at the newly refurbished Hyatt Regency Sydney at Darling Harbour from July 28–30, 2017.
