for Compounding Professionals to enhance pharmacy profitability

March 1, 2018

WAYNE, PA – Letco Medical, L.L.C. (“Letco Med”), a leading national supplier of quality compounding products, supplies and equipment, together with the American College of Apothecaries (“ACA”), a leader in providing continuing education for compounding pharmacists and technicians, announce the launch of the Education Value Program (“EVP”). This program provides compounding professionals access to best-in-class continuing education for up to 60% less than equivalent market offerings.

Letco Med Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Gregory Lake, said, “Letco is excited to bring our customers ACA’s quality educational experience at significantly reduced rates. ACA and Letco have a long-standing partnership and our customers value the knowledge they receive from ACA’s training and industry-leading experts who serve as instructors. Letco’s launch of EVP represents yet another first-of-its-kind program for compounding professionals that is squarely targeted on improving pharmacy profitability.”

Donnie Calhoun, RPh, FACA, FACVP, Executive Vice President and CEO of the American College of Apothecaries and American College of Veterinary Pharmacists said “Letco has been a strong supporter of ACA’s compounding education programming for many years. We are very enthusiastic about the launch of EVP and the access it provides to professional development and quality compounding training from ACA at market leading rates.”

To begin saving on continuing education costs through EVP, customers only need to spend a minimum of $5,000 with Letco Med over a consecutive three-month period. Discount codes to use when registering with ACA will be automatically provided by Letco Med to customers that meet minimum criteria. Customers can choose multiple compounding-specific classes, including Compounding Fundamentals, Hormone Replacement Therapy, Dermatology, Sterile, and Veterinary.
