NCPDP's Educational Summit is an annual event offering a full day of educational sessions on topics that matter most to our members who represent virtually every stakeholder group in the healthcare industry.
The 2019 Educational Summit will be held on Tuesday, November 5, 2019 at the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront Hotel in St. Petersburg, Florida. The Summit takes place right before NCPDP’s November work group meetings, giving work group attendees and others the opportunity to extend their stay and attend this important event that explores healthcare’s most pressing challenges and solutions.

The Non-member registration includes admission to the Summit and the November 2019 Work Group meetings (regularly $450). Plus, Non-members have until February 3rd to apply $150 of their registration fee towards their NCPDP membership.
