Ngā Mihi mō te Wā – happy holidays!
It’s our final newsletter for this year, so we would like to thank everyone for your continued support of the PHARMAC seminars. As we wrap up for 2018 the countdown to 2019 seminars has begun. Check out what’s planned for 2019 below.
Provide your feedback and be in to win!
PHARMAC seminars have been running for 12 years so we’ve got a survey to ask you about what you currently like and seek ideas and suggestions that could help improve the seminars.
All completed surveys received by Friday 11 January 2019 will go in the draw to win one of two free registrations to a seminar of your choice in 2019.
To complete the survey, please click on the link below - it should only take about 5-7 minutes to complete: PHARMAC seminar survey 2019(external link)
We really appreciate your feedback to help make the seminars great for you!
