PanAgora Pharma and Pharmacist Partners Assemble Visionary KOL Panel for THE CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE SUMMIT ‘14


February 2014: Florida|New York: Pharmacist Partners is pleased to announce its participation in PanAgora Pharma’s upcoming CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE SUMMIT MARCH 5-6, 2014 in Princeton, NJ.

Pharmacist Partners has assembled a dynamic panel of Pharmaceutical Industry KOLs. The roundtable discussion will cover multiple industry-sensitive topics within the overall theme of “The Emerging Role of the Pharmacist: A Cutting Edge Approach”.

Because Pharmacists are the last point of human contact as patients begin their medication journey, there is no “technology” that can replace the personal interaction between the Pharmacist and the Patient.

The pah_cohen_0nel will be moderated by Harold E. Cohen, R.Ph, Editor-in-Chief of U.S. Pharmacist.

Harold brings unique perspective to his role as moderator. During his 40-year professional career, Harold has served on several national and international association committees and boards, including the position of Chairman of the National Council of Prescription Drug Programs.

The PanAgora Pharma Customer Experience Summit 2014 is a senior-level business conference designed to help pharma identify, prioritize and solve key operational challenges that impact the customer experience. PanAgora’s Doug Lavender elaborated: “Our goal is for pharma to deliver a more personalized, targeted and productive multi-channel experience that will build relationships between pharma and its customers.”
