After transitioning the second annual Continuing Education Springfest to a fully virtual format, 165 pharmacists registered for four hours of live CE presented by Duquesne University School of Pharmacy and Highmark, Inc. residents.

Amy Woods"Our 'live' portion of the Springfest CE event was a huge success," said Amy Woods, Director of Continuing Pharmacy Education. "While we certainly missed seeing everyone in person, virtually seeing over 100 participants from near and far and connecting over outstanding programming offered by the pharmacy residents was an incredible experience.
