PCSC Seminar 18


2020 PCSC Educational Seminar Postponed

As the country grapples with the rapidly evolving COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, HDA is providing an update on the status of the PCSC Educational Seminar, originally scheduled for May 13-14 at the Novartis Corporate headquarters in East Hanover, N.J. Due to a Novartis corporate policy restricting outside events, and with the CDC's latest guidance for organizations to "cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States," we have made the decision to postpone our event
Please know the safety and well-being of our attendees is our number one priority, and all of us at PCSC sincerely appreciate and thank you for your support at this time. Special thanks also go to our event sponsors: Novartis, Boyle Transportation, BSI, Despir Logistics, Merck, McKesson, QProducts, Reckitt Benckiser and Tribe Transportation.

At this time, our plan is to reschedule the event time in the fall. We will contact registrants once a new date is confirmed. 

Thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions, please contact Chuck Forsaith.
