PANTHERx Hosts Educational Day with Local Student Specialty Pharmacy Association

Last week, PANTHERx Specialty Pharmacy hosted the University of Pittsburgh’s Student Association of Specialty Pharmacy (SASP). The University of Pittsburgh’s SASP chapter was founded earlier this year with the help of many student members who have worked rotationally at PANTHERx.

During the onsite visit, PANTHERx leadership and employees provided students with an overview of the specialty pharmacy industry and gave them an inside look at PANTHERx operations from care coordination to fulfillment. Students learned about PANTHERx’s dedication to our patients and the important role that we play in serving a diverse group of stakeholders. Students also experience a tour of the PANTHERx headquarter facility and were able to ask questions of our knowledgeable leadership and staff.

PANTHERx supports an educational corporate environment and is proud to encourage awareness in the student community about specialty pharmacy.
