Hudson Headwaters 340B is excited to share the second installment of our Webinar Series to be hosted on Wednesday, June 16th at 3pm. The one hour session is free to attendees. Below is a full outline of the webinar topic, full presenter bio, and the remaining sessions in our series:
COVID and Beyond: What a Year it has been!
As if adapting to a pandemic and ensuring the continued viability of our health centers while maintaining access for our patients was not enough, in July the 340B Drug pricing program came under a four-pronged assault by drug manufacturers and others. Though we may be seeing some light at the end of the tunnel in terms of both the pandemic and the manufacturer assault, the spotlight turned on the program continues to bring with it challenges. In this session, we will journey back through the last year and look at how health centers adapted to a public health emergency, as well as the dual threats of the potential loss of contract pharmacy and increased discriminatory reimbursement. More importantly, this session will outline the current status of these issues and discuss what health centers can and should do to protect and strengthen their 340B pharmacy program and the value it brings to their patients and the communities served.
