CHICAGO — The annual Pharmacy Conference of the Food Marketing Institute, Arlington, Va., was co-located with the FMI Show here last week for the second time in three years. While meeting at McCormick Place for two days, the Pharmacy Conference also gathered at a downtown hotel on the day before the show. The events will be co-located again next year in Las Vegas. Educational sessions that were joined by other FMI Show attendees included presentations on in-store clinics and understanding pharmacy financials. In other programming, conference attendees learned about branding a pharmacy and medication therapy management. Pharmacy executives also had business appointments with suppliers, an idea exchange luncheon and several opportunities to socialize at receptions.
