February 5, 2019— Hundreds of pharmacists, 340B program directors, and other patient advocates convened in San Diego last week for the 15th Annual 340B Coalition Winter Conference, the largest such gathering to date. The event gave safety-net hospitals, community health centers, Ryan White clinics, and other safety-net providers a chance to discuss the latest developments in drug pricing, learn more about best practices in their fields, and network with others dedicated to improving the health of low-income and rural patients.

The event came at a time of continued debate in Washington over the future of the 340B program and intensifying national scrutiny of rising prescription drug prices. Over the course of three days, the nearly 1,800 conference attendees heard from more than 100 speakers during several plenary sessions and more than 20 breakout sessions.
