Additionally, registration is open for NCPA’s 2022 Multiple Locations Conference, which will be held Feb. 23-26, 2022, at the Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach in Clearwater, Fla. According to the 2021 NCPA Digest, sponsored by Cardinal Health, 32 percent of independent community pharmacy owners have ownership in two or more pharmacies. Many others may aspire to own multiple pharmacies.
