As I write this, I am on my way to the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy’s Annual Meeting in the Mile High city. This is my second year attending the event as a Blue Fin Group consultant. Last year, I had been at Blue Fin Group for just a week, so I primarily had the perspective of my former position, leading account management teams in the pharmaceutical industry and as a managed care pharmacist. However, this year, with an entire year of consulting experience “under my belt”, I am attending with an enhanced perspective, since I am now working across the industry with many pharmaceutical companies, specialty pharmacies, IDNs and payers across both the medical and pharmacy benefit. I am excited to be at AMCP this year with my broader lens, and to learn more from my peers and the many continuing education sessions. I am also truly looking forward to the general session where the speaker is Derreck Kayongo, a Ugandan refugee who is now Founder of the Global Soap Project & CEO of the Center for Civil and Human Rights. I am sure his presentation will be inspiring and motivational.
As a long time AMCP member, I always look forward to this meeting as an opportunity to learn something new, re-connect with former colleagues, see old friends and meet new people. Please share your thoughts on the meeting and reach out if you would like to connect. I look forward to seeing you in Denver.
