IPA Goes Local

IPA Goes Local is a partnership between IPA and Iowa’s regional pharmacy associations to bring a live CPE program to locations across the state and see what our members are doing on a local level.

IPA Goes Local - 2020 Annual Meeting:
Iowa Cannabis Program and National Trends in Medical Cannabis

MedPharm Iowa joined the 2020 Annual Meeting for a virtual IPA Goes Local event on Iowa’s cannabis program. Recordings, slides, and additional resources from the presentation are available below.

IPA Goes Local 2020:
Burnout and Resiliency Programming: Awareness. Management. Care.

A lot of things can get in the way of being happy and healthy at work. While you may not be able to wave a magic wand and create a perfect workplace, you can make decisions that enable you to more successfully traverse the real-world organization that is your workplace today.
This educational program, co-hosted by the Iowa Pharmacy Association and Iowa Medical Society (IMS) in conjunction with the Meyvn Group, will explore what you can do to prevent burnout and how to recognize the warning signs; help you identify changes that can mitigate burnout; and explore simple, evidence-based solutions to enhance your joy in practicing medicine and reduce stress.
"I learned so much about the burnout continuum and took home tangible tools to navigate burnout both for my professional and personal life. Tammy does a great job of holding your interest and making the presentation germane to any practice setting or position. Her highly applicable observations are great for your whole team and your patients. Come prepared to be wowed and to have a great interprofessional evening."
- Connie Connolly, RPh, BCACP

With our partnership with IMS, the IPA Goes Local events have expanded to 12 meeting locations throughout Iowa in 2019.
