Registration for ‘5 Slides: Bending the Rx cost curve’ is now open!


Emily Boerger


The pandemic has shifted the politics and public opinion on health care. Where cost was a primary concern before COVID, now access to affordable innovations is top of consumers’ and policy makers’ minds. As a return to normalcy appears on the horizon, the intersection of cost pressures and innovation in pharmacy is becoming a primary topic of concern in health policy.

State of Reform is looking forward to exploring this topic in depth at our upcoming “5 Slides: Bending the Rx cost curve” virtual convening. The conversation will take place on Thursday, January 20, from 1:00 – 2:00pm Eastern Time.
