For the first time, the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP) Foundation hosed the Best Poster Competition at AMCP Nexus. Authors presented their research during Expo Hall hours and were judged on scientific merit, evidence that the research conducted was innovative and practical, the strength of the conclusions, the relevance of the study to managed care pharmacy practice, the clarity of the material, and the knowledge of the subject matter.
