SPEAKER PRESENTATIONS

Presentations are available via this website and through our conference mobile app, which is available free to all registered attendees (search for 340B Pulse in your app store). Attendees can download/view and/or print the presentations for the sessions they plan to attend. We encourage you to view presentations through the app. Note: Not all sessions on the agenda are listed on the website, only the sessions using PowerPoint presentations are included. If a speaker is not listed, they either aren't using a PowerPoint presentation, asked us not to distribute it, or it is not yet final. We will continue to add presentations as they are finalized or updated leading up to and throughout the conference.

**Presentations will be posted the week of February 3rd**
