Together, we will discover the reasons behind why GLP-1 RAs may be considered an appropriate second-line option in this setting, as recommended by the Diabetes Canada guidelines. Driven by patient vignettes, we will examine the latest evidence behind the decisions guiding our patient’s journey—and why GLP-1 RAs may make for a good fit.

The Hamilton & District Pharmacists’ Association was created in 1977 to set and achieve the following goals: to improve the qualifications and standing of pharmacy professionals; to promote a professional status; to provide an instructional and educational program and to hold conferences, meetings and exhibitions for the discussion of matters related to pharmacy.
Our Association is one of the longest established pharmacy associations in Canada. We have been repeatedly recognized by the Ontario Pharmacists Association (OPA), by winning the District Shield Award a record of 11 times. We are very proud of our association and, most importantly, of all our members.
