CPNP Connect: A Mentoring Opportunity

Students have an opportunity to be paired with a pharmacist member for a one-on-one mentoring opportunity during CPNP 2020. Pairing of the mentor to the mentee will be based on the specialty interests of the member and student as identified during the online registration process. Once paired, mentors and mentees will set up a time to meet during CPNP 2020 to answer questions and discuss future plans.

Students should indicate their intent to participate in CPNP Connect when they register for CPNP 2020.
