The sixth annual RCEC conference, which is hosted by Drug Store News Group in conjunction with the Convenient Care Association, will be held May 14 to 16 at the Planet Hollywood Resort in Las Vegas.

The three-day educational and networking forum is designed to meet the needs of the growing field of convenient care practitioners. The entire program is dually accredited for nurse practitioners and physician assistants. This year’s event will, once again, feature an Executive Track, as well as a Collaborative Care Track, which is accredited for nurse practitioners, physician assistants and pharmacists.

The RCEC event also serves as a platform to honor those providers and key executive leaders whose work throughout the year has distinguished them among their peers in retail health care. The annual Clinician Awards for Retail Excellence (CARE) Awards honor the “Unsung Heroes” who work tirelessly each day to help further the cause of retail-based health care. CARE Award nominations are open until April 1.

During the event, the winner of this year’s Loretta Ford CARE Lifetime Achievement Award also will be announced. Past winners of the Lifetime Achievement Award include Loretta Ford, who helped revolutionize the nursing profession more than 40 years ago with her work in co-founding the nation’s first pediatric nurse practitioner program; Mona Counts, who opened one of the first all nurse practitioner practices in the United States; Shirley Chater, former commissioner of the U.S. Social Security Administration; and Hal Rosenbluth, co-founder of Take Care Health Systems.
