DESCRIPTION OF MAIN MOTTO
The main motto for the Congress is: “From Lab to Counter: The Different Pharmacists’ Profiles and Their Constant Contribution to Global Health”
Through this motto, the aim is to show the wide range of areas where pharmacists can develop themselves through the practice of their profession. Depending on the area of health in which they work, the profiles and responsibilities of each pharmacist will be different. As such, this diversity of possibilities will be demonstrated through the collaboration of the speakers, who will share their knowledge during the dissertations. As a professional with great versatility and a plethora of skills, the pharmacist is an invaluable human resource for health services around the world, and recognizing this value of the pharmacist is ultimately the underlying purpose of this Congress and the organisations behind it.
