Victor Alves Presenting at the NYSAASC Spring Conference

Thank You to the New York State Association of Ambulatory Surgery Centers

Speaking at the “2022 Spring Conference” was a gratifying experience. A special thank you to Donna Moccio and Laurie Roderiques for the invitation to participate.

My presentation focused on current topics in pharmacy, including medication management, patient safety, safe injection practices, updates to USP Chapters <797> and <800>, and controlled substance security. The most rewarding part of the conference was seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Congratulations to the Association for a great conference and offering their members exceptional educational opportunities.
