CRANBURY, NJ (PRWEB) DECEMBER 23, 2015 — Succeeding in today’s crowded healthcare market often requires that associations align with like-minded organizations to achieve their goals. It is this realization that has led to a strategic partnership between The Lynx Group and the National Association of Specialty Pharmacy (NASP).
“The Lynx Group possesses significant association management experience and can provide the NASP with the support it needs to build its brand and membership,” says Brian Tyburski, President and CEO, The Lynx Group. “We’re looking forward to the varied opportunities that this partnership will offer not only to the NASP but developing synergies with other aligned national healthcare associations and patient advocacy groups in the specialty pharmacy care sector.”
As part of this partnership, The Lynx Group will provide the NASP with planning and marketing support for its annual meeting and expo, which will take place September 26-28, 2016, at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC. This event is expected to draw more than 1,000 senior executives, pharmacy directors, staff pharmacists, consultants, and other management- level personnel from specialty pharmacy providers, infusion pharmacies, pharma/biotech manufacturers, institutional pharmacies, hospitals, managed care organizations, GPOs, distributors, and suppliers to the specialty pharmacy ecosystem.
“The Lynx Group’s experience and strategic marketing affiliates will help bring NASP to the forefront in terms of shaping public policy, patient access, and professional education and certification for specialty pharmacy,” says NASP President Burt Zweigenhaft. “With this additional support, NASP will be able to take the next necessary steps to meet the varied and growing needs of our membership.”
