APhA MTM Central Re-development- Content Assessment Volunteer

Qualifications:  Must be an active APhA member in good standing, have selected APhA-APPM as the primary academy and be a member of the Medication Management SIG.
Commitment: 1-2 months
Orientation:  Once volunteers have been selected, a teleconference call will be set-up to provide project details including deliverables and the submission process.
