Northeast Ohio Medical University Pharmacy Students and Faculty Attend Ohio Pharmacists Association Annual Conference
2013 May 2Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) College of Pharmacy students and faculty attended the 135th Annual Conference of the Ohio Pharmacists Association, April 12-14, 2013, at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus. The three-day conference provided pharmacists with valuable information to improve patient health. Pharmacists not only gained critical knowledge about new drugs on the market, how to help patients better manage their drug therapy, and proper use of over-the-counter (OTC) medications, they also learned the most recent information about managing high blood pressure, irritable bowel syndrome, diabetes, and medications in older adults. In addition to participating in conference events, NEOMED students and faculty presented the outcomes of their work during poster sessions as part of the event's Ohio Research Forum.
