That we can achieve more collectively than alone.

Speakers' Bureau

PANS often receives requests from organizations looking for a pharmacist to speak at one of their events. In response to this, we are developing a “Speakers’ Bureau.” If you are interested in being a part of our Speakers’ Bureau, please send your name, area(s) of expertise (e.g. Diabetes), areas in which you are willing to give a presentation (e.g. HRM), phone number and email to info@pans.ns.ca. This information will be posted below.

Please contact the individual for more information and speaking fees.
