The Peter & Anna Zbeetnoff Memorial Fund established by Dr. Peter Zbeetnoff with the Royal University Hospital Foundation in 1999 will support a Drug Therapy Decision - Making Conference that would provide a meaningful education experience for physicians and pharmacists. The conference will provide an evidence-based perspective on pharma co-therapeutic initiatives for the benefit of the patient as well as provide a forum for the discussion of a current social issue in medicine. Thanks to the generosity of Dr. Zbeetnoff, this conference does not receive any support from industry.
