AMCP 2024 Meeting Kicks Off in New Orleans | AMCP 2024


This week, the annual meeting of the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP) will bring 3,400 pharmacy, payers and industry leaders to New Orleans.

About 3,400 are expected to attend AMCP 2024, the annual meeting of the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy from April 15, 2024, to April 18, 2024, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
