Let's Talk About LTC with Synchrony Pharmacy

By Synchrony Pharmacy

Why ARE we creating a podcast, well we wanted another way to interact with people around the long-term care industry. There are so many facets to long-term care from skilled nursing facilities to assisted living facilities CCRCs, senior living, group homes, and the list goes on and on. We partner with lots of different types of communities and wanted a platform to share information with anyone that wants to learn more about the industries that we interact with.

If you have any ideas for future programming or questions for our team, please send them to Education@pcapharmacy.com.
