What does the conference theme “Do More” mean to you?
Pharmacists have the opportunity to leverage much more fulfilling career opportunities over the coming years.

Why are you excited about participating in MM2017?
The conference program is terrific – there’s something for everyone here!

Where do you see pharmacy in 10 years?
I expect that the profession will probably contract to some extent – what will be left will be less focused on medicines supply and more related to adding value through clinical services.
