Ten Great Things to Do at the PQA Annual Meeting

The PQA Annual Meeting is next week, Tuesday, May 11, through Thursday, May 13, with a companion Research Symposium on Monday, May 17. This year's meeting has more than 50 educational, networking and entertainment sessions or events. You can register at any time to attend and, if you miss any sessions, they're available to all registrants on demand after the meeting.

Here are 10 of the fantastic opportunities to learn, network and engage at the 2021 PQA Annual Meeting.

  2. Gain insights on Equity in Medication Use Quality with our general session that will explore the barriers that lead to unfair and avoidable differences in health outcomes and how can we remove them. We’ll hear from a patient, Lilly’s Director of Global Health Literacy and PQA Board member Sharon Jhawar.

  3. Hear about COVID-19’s Impact on Quality with a general session that will share insights on what happened in the market and which changes in care could positively or negatively impact quality in the future.
