NSU Fall Classic

Fort Lauderdale Campus
About the Program'Ä¶'Ä¶'Ä¶'Ä¶'Ä¶in my opinion, this is our best overall two-day program that we have put together in my twenty years at Nova. Many of the programs offer information about wellness nutritional alternatives that are unfamiliar to most pharmacists. The programs are backed by evidence-based studies and have shown to out shine traditional therapies yet they don'Äôt get the media coverage. Perhaps the billions and billions of dollars that traditional drug and food industries have won'Äôt allow it. MSG or Vytorin anybody?
We will address those challenges and even why people on statins are at risk for many additional diseases that are going unchecked because of lack of proper testing and knowledge. Please read the book Drug Muggers to get an idea of just one area where we should be the knowledgeable masters and are not. This book will teach you what we didn'Äôt in pharmacy school. Do your consumers know more than you about nutrition? Go to a health food store and listen to the expert who probably has a week or more of training and all that experience of practicing like an expert. Being confident counts.
The book above author, Suzy Cohen, in my opinion, has done more positive things for the profession of pharmacy and healthcare in the US than any other pharmacist. I am one of her top fans and hope to have her lecture someday at one of our programs. Yet when I ask 20 pharmacists to tell me about Suzy, I get 19 who draw a blank. Shame on us. Isn'Äôt it about time that we professional drug experts start getting educated about how are patients are getting sick rather than to go along with supporting the treatment of symptoms? Aricept anybody? Wouldn'Äôt you want to explore the various pathways that lead to dementia and the research that has produced disease state reversals? Be there November 2nd and 3rd and we will tell you about non-traditional treatment and research. I will also tell you about Dr. Oz'Äôs favorite pharmacist, Suzy Cohen 'Äì from Florida.
And for those who love traditional education, yes, we will have pharmacy law. Even more exciting, we are fortunate to have 'Äúin-the-know'Äù Florida Board of Pharmacy member Michele Weizer reviewing the hottest item of interest, 'Äústerile compounding.'Äù
The Fall Classic conference will offer other programs that address the required elements of the Florida Board of Pharmacy as well as superb lectures on an actual cure (Hepatitis C) coming soon, and specific solutions on how to get better than 33% of our patients compliant with their medications, building team based ambulatory care skills, and hearing why 'Äúfood is no longer food.'Äù You will also have the opportunity to hear about the cholesterol myth.
Probably the one thing that makes this program exceptional is that all the speakers have exhibited a leadership role in wanting to share pertinent information that is vital to our careers as professionals. These practitioners, radio show healthcare hosts (3), statesman (Florida House of Representatives), entrepreneurs and educators are coming together to present in a format of edu-entertainment style to keep knowledge more interesting as you go through the day.
In my opinion'Ä¶.being exposed to non-traditional disease prevention and treatment is the tip of things needed by our consumers and payers of healthcare services - starting now.
Pharmacists attending this program will have the opportunity to receive the book 'ÄúDisease Prevention and Treatment,'Äù a 1666 page text that reviews non-traditional methods. Also, participants will be have the opportunity to eat a specially prepared health food lunch by Chef Elisa. (Traditional will be in the building as well for those who don'Äôt).
