Continuing Education Materials for 2017 Mid-Year Conference

PPA recommends downloading materials to a laptop or mobile device in advance, due to occasional bandwidth issues at the hotel when many individuals attempt large downloads simultaneously.


Please contact Sara Bowden, PPA Program Manager and CPE Administrator, with any questions or concerns at sbowden@papharmacists.com.


Some CE presenters will be utilizing Socrative during their presentation. Socrative is an online tool that allows attendees to respond to questions posed by presenters in real time. To use Socrative, you must have a smartphone, tablet, or laptop during the program.

Answer questions by downloading the Socrative Student App at https://socrative.com/apps.html or by going to the Socrative website at https://b.socrative.com/login/student/.
