CRN hosts supplement medicine interaction webinar for pharmacists, nurse practitioners

WASHINGTON — The Council for Responsible Nutrition announced it is hosting a free webinar on the interaction between dietary supplements and pharmaceutical drugs via the professional networking website Pharmacist Society, an online community created by Skipta and sponsored by The Drug Store News Group, and Generation NP, a website that serves nurse practitioners.

This webinar is part of CRN’s ongoing initiative to help ensure that healthcare practitioners have access to science-based information on dietary supplements and the supplement industry.

The one-hour webinar will be held Aug. 23 at 10 a.m. and will be presented by Duffy MacKay, CRN VP scientific and regulatory affairs.

The webinar will provide an overview of the topic before exploring some of the more common drug-supplement interactions. Following his presentation, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions via a live online Q&A chat.

Pharmacist Society and Generation NP are closed-loop environments for members only, so the webinar will not be open to the public. For those who are unable to participate in the live event, it will be made available to download on-demand on both Pharmacist Society and Generation NP for a limited time, CRN stated.

This is the second webinar CRN is conducting with Pharmacist Society and the first on Generation NP.
