The 2017 Annual Convention & Expo was held May 4-6, 2017 at the Dixie Center in St George.

We had another great conference, with up to 13 hours of CE - attendees enjoyed networking with other pharmacy professionals and had the opportunity to speak directly with several of our vendors and board members of UPhA. Below are the handouts and assessments for the classes that were taught. Make sure you submit the class code to receive proper credit for each class. The final batch will be reported to national on the morning of June 30, 2017. It is the attendee's responsibility to make sure the assessments are taken, and also verified on the CPE monitor.
