2021 NPPA Conference – Speaker Presentations

Speaker PPT Files

  In case you misplaced your Attendee Program Binder and need a refresher on parts of this year’s Speaker Presentations, most of the speakers have generously allowed for copies of their PPT files (in handout style) to be available to NPPA Attendees on our website after the show.  To view their PPT files, click on the presentation you wish to view as listed below (note that some presentations are quite large so may take time to load).

Use of Speaker PPT Files – Only for Registered Attendee Reference

  Speaker PPT files are only provided for use by registered 2021 NPPA Conference Attendees.  They are not to be:  reproduced/copied and shared with/distributed to others that are not Pharmacy Buyer or GPO Attendees of the 2021 NPPA Conference; nor any Vendors, even if they were an Exhibitor/Sponsor to this year’s show.  Redistribution is considered inappropriate and may affect your Membership or future Conference Attendance eligibility with NPPA.  Should it be discovered that use of these Speaker PPT files have been abused, we will no longer be able to provide them as a courtesy to NPPA Attendees in the future.  Thank you for your cooperation & understanding.
