WAUKESHA, Wis. — Hamacher Resource Group has been invited to present a continuing education session, “Bottom Line Performance: Opportunities and Actions,” at the Mutual Drug Spring CE Forum on April 7 in Raleigh, N.C., the company announced today.
Dave Wendland, HRG VP and member of the ownership team, will present the two-hour session, which will cover a variety of practical, low-cost techniques that can have a dramatic effect on a drug store’s profitability.
The goal of the session is to help pharmacists develop a new view of the financial aspects of their operation and understand essential elements that can affect overall pharmacy profitability. Wendland stated, “I’m excited to incorporate timely information into the session from the HDMA-sponsored research report, Independent Pharmacy Shoppers: Who, What, and Why? that we completed in January. We discovered where else independent pharmacy shoppers go for their OTC and personal care items and why; and it revealed differences between pharmacist and shopper perceptions of independents’ strengths. What we learned about independents’ competitive advantages and threats will inform multiple learning objectives in the session.”
