In addition, representatives from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have been invited to present.
Registration for CRN and CHPA members is $195. Nonmembers are invited to attend the workshop at a rate of $295. The AER seminar is scheduled to run from approximately 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., allowing attendees to fly in and out on the same day.
