BALTPHARM FORUM 2019
It is our pleasure to invite you to join us for the 22nd Baltic pharmaceutical conference BaltPharm Forum 2019 on 13–14 April in Kaunas, Lithuania.
Baltpharm Forum is annual international pharmaceutical conference among the Baltic countries (Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia) organised to learn and update your skills.
Every year since 1998, pharmacists across the Baltic States gather at this Forum to exchange ideas and experiences, meet Colleagues and participate in discussions, and most of all, develop professionally.
This year theme "Pharmacists as drug experts: their role in health care system" explores the evolution of pharmacists and helps understand transformation from that of apothecary with a drug product focus to that of patient centered care.
On this occasion, Baltpharm Forum will bring pharmacy experts, educators from different European countries, some of which already have stories of success to share. Conference will host well-known regional speakers, public institutions representatives, pharmaceutical industry representatives and much more.
